Puerto Jimenez is touted to be a serene and quiet beach town. My partner and I are sitting awake, red-eyed, from trying to sleep for the past four hours while the loudest bass from a club somewhere is blaring. We both have thick earplugs, the air conditioner is on full, and we put a fan next to our heads, but...

We stayed in a room at Il Giardino the night before and the night after our three day tour of the Corcovado National Park. The price was reasonable and the room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The room had a view of the mangrove behind the hotel. The mangrove view was the nicest feature of the room. The room...

Very close to the ferry drop off point, airport, and beach. In the same location as the restaurant (which has some of the best italian I've ever tasted). Check in was a breeze (i had reserved through airBnB), as was checking out. The hosting family was extremely welcoming, and we had multiple conversations with them throughout our stay. The rooms...

We loved relaxing here for a brief overnight stay in Puerto Jimenez after a few days in Corcovado. Breakfast by the water was the highlight. Located a 5 minute walk from the air strip. Guilio provided a welcoming atmosphere.

This was an excellent choice on our part as Giulio was so helpful. We had two nights here, one night - then 2 nights in Corcovado - then returned to Il Giardino for our last night in Puerto Jimenez. During that time, Giulio was so helpful in keeping our extra baggage so we wouldn't have to lug them through the...

The Osa Peninsula, Corcovado magic, Puerto Jiménez... A place to stay and enjoy the beauty of nature? Il Giardino is the cherry on the cake of what is already good all around.

Actually, this is a restaurant which rent some rooms in the back of the house. The rooms are fine and you will have everything you need for a stay in Puerto Jimenez. It is not a luxus, but the beachview, the food of the restaurant and the people there make it an unforgettable stay. They serve also small breakfast and...

This small bed and breakfast provides both comfortable rooms and an excellent restaurant. I felt like I became a member of the owner's family as they always greeted and were genuinely interested in talking to my daughter and myself when we came and left. Jimmy, the talented and friendly cook, always waved and created enticing aromas as we entered through...
