This place is absolutely amazing. A double bed room was $50 a night, and though it was very small, the hotel grounds are incredible. The very friendly staff, including the security guard on duty all night, make you feel very welcome and safe. There are literally macaws, fireflies, parakeets, parrots, monkeys, iguanas, raccoons, and many other species that can be seen regularly cruising through the property. The landscaping is phenomenal. The open air, cabana style seating area in the middle of the property provides the perfect place to enjoy a cup of free coffee while you watch birds and animals run around. Free wifi helps too! If you are going to Puerto Jimenez this is the place to stay!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At "La Choza del Manglar" (or "The Mangrove Hut" if you prefer the English version) you are GUARANTEED to see WILDLIFE. How certain are we? Well, have you ever sat around a Tropical Lounge and seen a Scarlet Macaw, a Monkey or a Kinkajou? You will at "La Choza". Many guests have said they see more wildlife at "La Choza del Manglar" than at any other location during their Costa Rica vacation. We just reopened in February of 2014 after being closed for the best part of the last five years. We built new rooms during that time which we are sure will now offer our guests greater variety and comfort while visiting La Choza. Come and stay with us, whether for just a few days or a few weeks. We are only a five minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and only 300 meters from one of the nicest beaches here. Gentle waves will lull you on our beautiful chocolate sand beaches, cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) will fly and play throughout the gardens of "La Choza". This is truly a birders paradise. You don't even have to leave your room or cabin to see these impressive Macaws and the many other varieties of exotic birds that visit here. Don't forget to spend some time in the lounge, decorated with beautiful hand painted murals that showcase the "Intimate & World Famous" Monkey Bar. The bar is yours to work as you please during your visit. It has been converted to a communal bar. We offer WIFI so bring your laptops, smartphones or tablets if you want or need to hook up. La Choza now offers a funky beach hut on 13 acres with 150 meters of beach frontage with secluded sun bathing areas; a beautiful 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom tropical home in Puerto Jimenez & finally a secluded "Tarzan & Jane Tropical Hideaway" with 2 thatched huts, hammocks, kitchen, bathroom and a outdoor, garden shower heated by solar power for the truly adventurous. ... more less
