Getting there and back was more than a little difficult. We took the boat option, and I would recommend the flight instead. Once we got there, the experience was sublime. The staff was SO friendly and accommodating, the other guests were warm and the place had a great sense of community. They made us veggie food and even cooked the... More

Drake bay with group of SCUBA divers December 5-12, 2009. Flew into Drake airstrip on small plane then on to land rover and then to Jinetes. Welcomed by staff who were top notch. Room was simple yet had everything we needed. Note there is no a/c and at times it was a bit warm but a simple walk to the... More

We stayed at Jinetes for 6 nights in mid November, and it was fantastic. The rooms were basic but comfortable. However, the charm is the remote location and the fantastic staff. Jessica and Krista were great and extremely helpful and accomodating, especially when arranging last minute excursions.. We also loved the fact that it is a small place so we... More

Finally got around to posting about our trip to Jintes de Osa Nov. 18-27. In a word, it was Great! We've taken alot of dive trips to alot of places, and this was the best all around trip we've ever had. The diving was good. Although the visibility wasnt the best, we still saw lots of marine life, including dozens... More

We stayed 3 nights at this location and wished we could have stayed the other 5 of our trip. The location, facilities and resturant were above expectation for the remote location. But the really value is with the staff. Jessica and Maritsa went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and worry free. They assisted us with making arrangements... More

The hotel is basic but that is to expected in a rather remote location like Jinetes is located. We thought the food was so-so (most other guests agreed), the organised snorkling was great fun and the recommendation to take a little canoe tour one hour south was very worthwhile. The relatively low rating is because of 1) safety issues (theft/crime)... More

This was my very first trip out of the United States and from the moment I arrived until the moment I left I was nothing short of enthralled. Anyone can buy a Lonely Planet book on Costa Rica or watch the Discovery Channel to get an idea of what this spectacular region of the world is like so I had... More

Great place with small scale family atmosphere. I stayed in room 3 which has a nice view on the Bay which gets extra value when enjoying the sunrise at 5.30am with a fresh cup of coffee that is being put in front of your room in the morning. The rooms are spacious and clean including the bathroom. Everyday you are... More

Jessica and Carrie were really great to work with. They were both very accomodating, fun to talk to and very knowledagable of the area and the tours offered. I have been to Coast Rica many times and staying at Jinetes de Osa Hotel was one of my favorite experiences. The tours they offer are mind blowing!
