I cannot say enough about Paula or this place! The photos just don't do it justice. Every Bungalo was unique, clean, and had everything we could possibly need. The air conditioning worked very well, the plumbing was in good condition , we had a kitchen in each unit. The pool was perfect for us to cool off after hot days....

We love having guests like you! So glad we could help out when we could and make your visit enjoyable...... guests often say that our property works great for small groups as you can all hang out together but yet have your privacy and space when you need it. You were very respectful of our property and can't wait until...

If you are looking for well maintained villas with some of the nicest owners look no further. Paula and Clark are some of the best property owners I've ever met. The villas are in great shape with ac in every bedroom. We saw wild life almost every morning/day. I honestly can't say enough great things about jungle creek villas. They...

Paula is a combination of a wonderful host and a capable concierge. She helped us schedule tours and even played spades with us one evening! What more could you ask? The property is lovely, with a menagerie of nature both residential and itinerant. From Macaws, Jesus Christ lizards and massive iguanas that live on property to monkeys and toucans that...

We stayed at Jungle Creek in the main villa from March 10-19, 2017 and absolutely loved it! The villa was very spacious and had everything we needed. Paula is the best for advice, booking reservations, suggesting fun tours, even shuttling us to a Chiropractor for boogie board mishaps :) She made our trip very relaxing and we trusted her judgement...

This place is a hidden gem. Off the beaten path. Jungle Creek offers 4 suites. We were in the El Geckko room which was plenty big enough for my husband and myself. We arrived after dinner on a Wednesday evening and was greeted by one of the owners, Paula. She showed us our room,and went over all the necessities. There...

The cliche home from home was actually made for Clarke and Paula's wonderful Jungle creek , we simple could not have had a better time.

We truly enjoyed your laid-back, "Pura Vida" attitudes and are so glad you could relax here at Jungle Creek :) It was fun hanging out and visiting around the pool and with the other guests as well. Even a little "babysitting"; right?! lol Thanks again for staying and being awesome guests.

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Jungle Creek and had the most incredible time! It was the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure. We loved spending the mornings watching wildlife over coffee and dipping into the pool when the afternoons got hot. The evenings were enjoyed visiting with the other Jungle Creek families in the common area. Paula...

My family and I stayed in the Mono Vista Villa a few weeks ago and it was fantastic! I contacted Jungle Creek Villas 6 or so months before our trip to Costa Rica and Paula was so helpful.
