We stopped overnight in Puerto Jimenez on our way to Carate - if you ever try driving Osa, never try to do it on one day, you'll miss the beauty and probably kill yourself driving. Puerto Jimenez is actually worth staying for a night or so - it is a pretty little 'beach' town with a lot to do locally. We chose Cabinas Jimenez mostly on the price - anytime you can stay waterfront with air conditioning for less than $100 it is a deal. We booked #10 because it was waterfront, but when we arrived they upgraded us ( it IS rainy season in Osa right now) to one of the two new rooms - #14 and #15. I included a couple of photos - they are beautiful new rooms , with full kitchens and verandahs where you can drink a beer and watch the sunset (although in Osa it sets behind you). We cannot say enough of how nice these room were for the price - I have paid twice the amount for half the room.
