My friend and I recently went to visit the Bolita hostel and walked along the trails, breathtaking high up view with lush jungle and wildlife, it was absolutely beautiful and the owner Ron was very welcoming. I highly recommend going !

Ron and Val have created a simple little spot to experience paradise on earth. Be aware that if you are used to air-conditioning, Prepared meals and convenience this may not be the place for you. But if you want to be away from the tourists, not spend a bunch of money on

Bolita was the highlight of our trip. It was such an amazing feeling to wake up in the middle of the jungle listening tucans singing and monkeys howling. Ron was friendly and on point, he made sure everyone is safe and happy. The place is very eco- friendly black and grey

When I was there I kept saying that I found my paradise because I’ve travelled enough to know it’s a truly unique experience. You walk up from this beautiful hike a little tired to be honest, but Ron (the host, owner, creator) welcomes you with a glass of water and gets to know

Osa is a gem in itself, but largely inaccessible. Corcovado national park is amazing, but expensive and you are rushed. Here you can stay and explore at your leisure, so when you're ready for the park you've already seen so much.

I would still do both. Both are different experiences and very worth it. We saw toucans out our window every day at Bolita (was fantastic!) and there are a lot of frogs in the area. There are also sloths but we never got to see them unfortunately. The atmosphere at Bolita was so relaxed and the scenery is stunning. I felt refreshed and rejuvenated when we left there. We also did a two day hike into the national park - there is no point in doing the one day hike. You only get so far befor you have to turn around and there is little reward. What you see largely depends on your guide, however. We had a wonderful guide, Roger, who was organised through the very kind owners of the hotel / hostel Oro Verde (I would highly recommend to stay there while in Puerto Jimenez. It's cheap, clean and the owners really go out of their way for you). Roger was incredible. He knows the forest well and knows how to track animals. We saw everything from tapirs to ant eaters to even a puma! It was a long two days but I am so glad we did it. Other people hiking on the same day as us zoomed past with their guide who didn't seem to care much about what was going on and they hardly saw anything. Be careful who you book with!

Just contact the Bolita hostel. There is a contact form on their website. I can't put their email here. It is bolitahostel. Gmail. You can also google : workaway. It is a volunteer site. Click on host list. Look for Central America and Bolita.

"The double in the dorm has a great view, and if the dorm is not full it will be private enough"
"Bring a headlamp, need to bring your food, and know that it's very very humid and you may not feel dry the whole time you're there."
"All rooms are great."
"great double room with open view to the valley"
"Bring you're own food. Expect to stay longer. Head torch is essential."
