Stayed for the 2nd time at La Purruja Lodge. It was another great stay, Only able to stay one night but the room was comfortable and grounds are beautiful. Breakfast was very good. As in our 1st stay we saw @ 40 squirrel monkeys feeding within mere meters. Host were very nice. La Purruja Lodge is a great place to stay for birds and monkeys.

Went here more because it's not located in town, looking for a place that had some birds n animals for our parents. Lodge is pretty basic but no matter to us. Squirrel Monkeys everywhere and parents loved them. I liked the spring fed pool, a tad dirty with leaves that could be taken out but refreshing. Walter is a good host. Room basic, ceiling fan and screened windows, should be cool enough to sleep. Internet connection was adequate. Wife n Mom did not like the no hot water shower though. OK saw that on web site so no surprise and refreshing for me. Sleeping, my biggest issue was the truck noise on the nearby road and the dogs barking. Can't do too much about either but annoying! Looking for a nice quiet place to enjoy nature. Fair price so can't complain too much Breakfast was a tad sparse for 6$

The owner is really really really Nice. We Had an amazing stay here. We have camp in this huge and really well maintained garden and we have also taken cabins. Both were really great. We have seen some Tucans in the garden, many other birds, the swimming pool is perfect, there is nice place to cook with some hammocks and a pool game. A perfect place to stay for one night, one week, one month ^^

Stayed in Golfito one night before Puerto Jimenez.This Eco lodge was so beautiful..family ran by the most friendliest people.We arrived at 7am..due to a super early flight from San Jose.When we arrived so early there were no problems to let us check in.The tour guide Joe that stays at the lodge was up when we arrived.He informed us of the amazing boat tour he could provide us with on our stay.When we told him it would have to be that day he said no problem.He organized a tour for us and 2 other people staying there in an hour.By 10am we were on a boat cruising threw the mangroves.Joe's knowledge and good eye for nature and history made this an amazing day!! Then to return to the lodge with all the wildlife and serenity..the symphony of sounds put me to sleep.This is a very special place.Especially for the low cost.I recommend this beautiful place to anyone staying in Golfito!!

Very nice room and facilities for the money, beautiful garden for realxing and admiring the local wildlife. Helpful owners - among other things they informed me that if I had a Tracopa bus ticket to San Jose or elsewhere, that I could use it to ride the local bus into Golfito for free.
