We are only a three minute walk to downtown Puerto Jimenez and only 350 meters from one of the nicest beaches here. Enjoy the hidden pool or head for the Gentle waves which will lull you on our beautiful chocolate sand beaches, cavorting Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) will fly and play throughout the gardens of 'La Chosa'. This is truly a birder's paradise. You don't even have to leave your room or cabin to see these impressive Macaws and the many other varieties of exotic birds that visit here. Don't forget to spend some time in our lounge, decorated with beautiful hand painted murals that showcase our 'Intimate & World Famous Monkey Bar now with a new transparent roof for monkey viewing. We do offer Wifi, so please bring your laptops, smartphones or tablets if you want or need to hook up.

If you prefer, just walk the beaches or hang-out in one of many comfy hammocks around the property with one of those colorful Tropical Umbrella Drinks. Come and spend some time with us. Make 'La Chosa del Manglar' your home on the OSA. If you spend anytime at all visiting our web site you will quickly come to the conclusion that there is extraordinary animal activity at 'La Chosa del Manglar' There really isn't anything we can say with words that can do it justice. so we simply suggest that you visit the Photo Gallery and see for yourselves what 'La Chosa' has to offer. Remember that all photos have been taken on the property. Bring your cameras folks!!. How do you want to spend your vacation? Whether your days are action packed or totally peaceful & restful, you will love coming back to your home away from home at 'La Chosa del Manglar'. We have a variety of rooms to fit different needs. From small, intimate and romantic accommodations for couples, to family rooms or space for groups, we can make anyone comfortable. Eleven lovely cabins and rooms nestled in the lush landscaping bring nature right to you. Fluttering butterflies, hummingbirds, monkeys and lots of others start their day right outside your door. Air conditioning is available in all rooms. The Private Cabins in keeping in line with our guest's requests offer only fans so as not to disturb the animals. They are all brightly decorated with beautiful wooden furniture. Orthopedic mattresses, comfy pillows, nice cotton linens, private baths and night stands all make your room comfy. Then step outside and relax in one of many lounging areas in the shade. You won't want to leave. And why should you when you can see what you came to Costa Rica for right outside your door! Why leave monkeys to go look for monkeys? They're right here. With over four acres of lush landscaping and natural mangroves to explore you might just want to stay right here for awhile. The magnificent Scarlet Macaws (Lapas) can be seen daily, literally dropping out of the sky for you to get a very up close peek. You will never forget these spectacular creatures, which lodge all over the Osa Peninsula. There are tropical, brightly colored flowers, fruits and plants filling the grounds of the hotel some of which may eventually end up in your tummy. Butterflies, birds, lizards, flowers, it's like being in a cross between a Botanical Garden & a Zoo without Cages, it's truly a tropical fairy tale! There are lounging areas to hang in and doze to the sounds of singing birds and screeching monkeys. Really, you will not want to leave. And you don't have to. See you at La Chosa soon.
