We spent a few days at this lodge/hostel. It is an incredible location, very remote and so beautiful. The staff were lovely, but it was low season, so not many people around. Kimberley was very friendly and helpful. We did a day walk to Corcovado park, excellent. We also walked one of the trails, helpful map. One of the highlights was the amazing food, Fernando was such a great cook. Although we did feel pressured to eat early. The solar system was broken so they only ran the generator for a couple of hours a day. This generally wasn’t a problem, but we didn’t have any power in our room at any time, so had to use torches. Water was cold, and some bugs etc in bathroom. We were in Cueva de Leon room. Because there was no power in the room, we spent the evenings in the bar, but again they clearly didn’t want to run the generator too long. We were asked to go to our room at 20.30 one evening, but that meant we couldn’t read or play cards as no power in the room. Bit disappointing. The other thing to be aware of was the arrangements for catching the boat from Sierpe. We were ready about three hours before the boat left, but there were numerous boats going to different lodges and no information, we nearly missed our boat! It was very rough and about an hour to 90 minutes. quite an exhilarating ride! Not for the faint hearted or those who get sea sickness or if you have back problems..

My wife is vegan and she loved the vegan options at the restaurant. The view and proximity to the ocean is unreal. We enjoyed exploring the property and going to Cano Island. The horseback riding tour is also highly recommended. Our tour guide took us to a waterfall and guided us through the rainforest. His horses are Very well behaved.

I loved getting away from touristic areas and just being in the wilderness. You dont have any distractions of cars, stores, or people trying to sell you stuff here. If you want a true nature experience you will find it here.

This place is a place you cannot miss out on if you are going to the Osa. This is the real jungle right next to the ocean. No roads, no stores, no chaos, just you and nature. The restaurant is incredible and the food options are healthy and they have great vegan options!

We were lucky to learn about this hotel/hostel on a blog that I read. As other reviews have mentioned, the Jaguar Jungle is way off the beaten track. Don't come here unless you are prepared to really be present here for a while. It is quite difficult to imagine a more stunning location, with the beach immediately in front of the hotel and jungle on all sides. This morning we were woken up early by a troupe of capuchin monkeys feasting on the mango tree right outside our window. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and conversation. They breakfasts and dinners we enjoyed were exceptional, especially considering the hotel's quite tenuous and infrequent link to civilization. Other reviews noted that the bathroom could be cleaned more off and that is true. Our bedroom was missing a few details like a doorknob on the inside of the door (oops!). And yet am sure that of all the hotels we experienced during our 3 weeks in Costa Rica, this is the one I will rave about to my friends back home. By the way, we chose to arrive and leave at Jaguar Jungle by means of the 4.5 hour hike south from Drake Bay. It is a stunningly beautiful hike.
