As we arrived, scarlet macaws sceamed and played in the trees above us, and they were a constant presence us all during our stay. Birds abound and white fac e monkeys make frequent appearances along with a huge iguana and countless butterflies in the beautiful expansive garden. The owners don't seem to care much if they have guests, the restaurant and bar were closed. The staff and owners were super friendly, a guard was at the front gate all night and most of the day. Very small basic room, but I spent all my time in the garden so it was not a problem.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- At "La Chosa del Manglar" you are GUARANTEED to see WILDLIFE. How certain are we? Well, have you ever sat in a Tropical indoor Lounge and viewed from your chair a Scarlet Macaw, a Monkey or a Kinkajou? You can at "La Chosa". Many guests have said they see more wildlife at "La Chosa del Manglar" than at any other location during their Costa Rica vacation. We are Flora and Fauna Extraordinarie!! La Chosa reopened in February of 2014 after being closed for the best part of five years. We're small (10 rooms), tropical, intimate and best of all ALIVE, EXTREMELY ALIVE!! Come and stay with us for a few days or a few weeks. We are only a five minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and 300 meters (6 minutes) from one of the nicest beaches here. Gentle waves can be found on our beautiful chocolate sand beaches. Cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) and Toucans are present throughout La Chosa gardens. This is truly a birder's paradise. In some cases you don't even need to leave your cabin or room to see many varieties of exotic birds, reptiles and mammals. Don't forget to spend some time in our lounge decorated with beautiful hand painted murals. The WIFI signal is best right here. The bar is yours to use as you please as is the kitchen, so just let the staff know you wish to use the area and they'll be happy to get you set up. We offer WIFI in the public areas so bring your laptops, smartphones or tablets if you need to hook up. We also offer a WIFI FREE AREA OF THE PROPERTY which means that the back garden and our two cabins and two classic garden rooms DO NOT receive an internet signal. This is the best area for those leaving their electronics at home. Here you can really disconnect. Is it your time to check out yet?
