    In one of the most biologically diverse areas on earth, there is a paradise that only God could have imagined. The Pacific Ocean stretches out to the horizon. In the distance, one can see the tip of Panama across the Gulfo Dulce. Behind you are hundreds of acres of primary forest teaming with wildlife. Below are magnificent beaches with some of the best fishing and surfing the world has to offer. It's only a short hike down our path.

    Built over 500 feet above the sea, Tres Palmas catches the cooling tropical breezes coming from the Gulfo Dulce and Pacific Ocean. The sound of the surf rolling in the distance, scarlet macaws calling to their mates, while howler monkeys cavort overhead, lull you into a sense of harmony with nature.

    In the midst of this spectacular setting, a seclude...

    How to get there
    Airport: Puerto Jimenez: 13.0 mi
    Ferry: Boats to and from Golfito: 13.0 mi
    You should fly from the States to San Jose, Costa Rica. There you can:

    1. Take one of two inter-country airlines, (NatureAir & Sansa) to the small town of Puerto Jimenez on the Peninsula de Osa. It's about a 45 minute flight. There you can rent a 4 wheel drive vehicles or take a taxi to our property.
    2. Rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle in San Jose and drive there. It's a 5 to 6 hour drive, but if it's your first time to Costa Rica, there are plenty of places to stop along the way to explore other areas of the country.
    3. We can hire a large van for you to transport your group to Puerto Jimenez. Again it's a 5 to 6 hour drive, but for large groups, it can save you hundreds of dollars. There, you can either rent a vehicle or take a taxi to Tres Palmas.
    4. We can arrange...

Tres Palmas is absolutely breathtaking. The attention to detail in respect to the lodgings were far beyond my expectations. The craftsmanship of the main building and cabanas showed all the hallmarks of skilled crafters, even down to the hand carved reliefs on all of the solid wood doors. The grandeur of Tres Palmas is further heighted by the fact that...

"Wow!" says it all. Amazing vacation...completely different from other vacations I've taken. Tres palmas itself is amazing! Then you add in the incredible ocean view, jungle, and incredible sightings of monkeys, makaws, etc (while sitting in the pool!) Oh...and not to mention the excellent meals prepared by the caretakers (Marvin and Yerlin), so worth the $5 per meal! Best guacomole... more

We were so lucky to find this amazing places sitting high above Cabo Matapalo where the jungle meets the beach. Marvin met us at the airport and was an indispensable asset throughout the trip.
