Lovely house in a beautiful place! Not a luxury resort, but if you don't mind a little effort to get there and don't need to be waited on... Casa Dulce is a wonderful place to relax and get away from the world. The house has...More

About the neighbourhood
Matapalo is a wonderful little neighborhood, located at the tip of the Penisula de Osa, 18 kilometers Puerto Jimenez. There are several eco-lodges that offer options for drinks and meals within walking distance. You can hike a short way up to Lapa Rios for a fantastic breakfast, lunch or dinner. The view alone is worth the walk.
Don't miss Martina's Bar and Grill...especially on Friday nights. This is the one and only hang-out for both locals and tourists. Great drinks, fantastic food, and finish it off with a little dancing...Martina's is a must!
Getting around
Getting around in the Matapalo area is super easy either by foot or rent car. Once you get to Casa Dulce, you will not really need a car, but if you have one, you can buzz into town for whatever you need/want...
Traveling by foot, whether you're combing the beautiful beaches or you're taking on the challenges of a jungle hike, an old pair of tennis shoes or water shoes will do the trick. Everything, within Matapalo, is within walking distance, but a car or taxi will be required when wanting to go to town. There is a local 'collectivo' that runs twice a day to and from Jimenez.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: San Jose, Costa Rica: 328.0 km
Three options are available for your journey to Matapalo! You may choose one of the following:
Rent car
Commuter plane
If you're on a tight budget, the bus is the way to go. You will get to enjoy many of the cultural aspects of Costa Rica as you make your way south, enjoying all the sights and sounds of the trip!
Rent car - this is a very enjoyable journey with two options: the coast road, or the mountain road (The Pan American Highway). If you have the time and the resources, this is a wonderful way to get to The Osa.
Commuter plane - this is by far the easiest way to get to Puerto Jimenez, which is the nearest town to Matapalo. This journey is painless...traveling less than 45 minutes and you have arrived.
