Driving through Puerto Jimenez, looking for the hostel Chosa Manglar, I was sceptical on how much of a nature retreat it would be. After finding the place, I was positively surprised! Despite it being pretty close to the road, the whole hostel has this amazing serenity to it. In the middle of an amazing green forest in combination with mangroves. We absolutely loved it. During our visit in March, we only saw a couple of macaws, crabs and iguana's, but I'm sure this hostel has more animals crawling around.
The breakfast buffet is wonderful as well. The best thing about this hostel are the owners. Not only are they extremely kind, they really put an effort in working out a small issue we were having. The owner proved to be very professional and worked through solutions thinking on the long-term. I would definitely recommend this hostel!More
