About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

'los Congos' named after the frequently visiting howler monkeys.

This cosy home (95 sq. meters with the deck) is built entirely of wood in a green jungle setting on a 400 sq. meters parcel of land.

At the back of the house is an open deck, overlooking a tropical garden.

The house is well ventilated with a big open living area and the temperatures range between 22 and 33 degrees celsius at all times.

We have summer all year round and you can admire many plants and flowers as well as beautiful trees.

Hummingbirds as well as a variety of other birds such as parrots and tucans can be seen from the deck.

We live in the house next door (on the same property) and are available for questions and recommendations about the numerous activities in the area.

We own 2 dogs and never had problems with breakins.

Guest Access

The laundry will be shared with the owners.

Interaction with Guests

We shall be present in another house, in the same property and we can recommend the travelers for the activities of neighborhood.

The Neighborhood

The beaches, restaurants and the nearest shops are located about 0,6 miles (20 min. walk, 10 min. bike ride, 5 min. by car).

Puerto Viejo is located 3 miles away.

There are many places to visit in the area:

Refuge Gandoca / Manzanillo, Cahuita National Park, Bribri indigenous reserves, water falls, Jaguar rescue center, sloth sanctuary, etc ... and of course beautiful beaches:

Punta Cocles, Playa Chiquita, Punta Uva.

Playa Cocles:

A long wide beach with strong moderate waves, recele in the North, in front of the point of Pirriplí, a beautiful rock island with the same name. The place is ideal for sunbathers, surfers, walks on foot or pony treks.

Punta Cocles has a small coral reef bursting with natural pools.

A 10 minutes drive away, in a Jamaican atmosphere, Puerto Viejo awaits you with thriving night life, bars and restaurants that offer a choice of local as well as international dishes.

Getting around

It's best to rent a car for a short stay, but for a longer stay, this is not necessary and we can lend you bikes.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at Los Congos Jungle paradise in March this year, it was a great spot, fantastically located in the middle of the garden, surrounded by the trees and tropical vegetation, so we could experience the beauty & diversity of the place from our porch!

We saw the monkeys hanging out in the trees of our garden, and each morning we were waken by Rooster and Howler Monkeys.

As surrounded by flowers, there was a beautiful smell around the house (apparently some of the flower growing there is used to create the base of Chanel No5 pefume!!)This is a great place for Nature Lovers.

As Gigi and JM provided us the bicycles, it was convenient to cycle around. The closest beach Cocles is great for its natural pools, were the corals isolate you from the sea (big thing in the word of riptides).

Hosts are very friendly,very open, true animals lovers and very genuine. Gigi baked us the bread, showed around, presented to the neighbors and gave aloe Vera from the garden to heal my sunburn:)

Highly recommended!

Le paradis!

  • 5 of 5

Un petit coin de paradis avec des hôtes discrets toujours aux petits soins pour rendre notre séjour inoubliable. Ils mettaient tout en oeuvre pour que nous soyons bien : du pain frais cuisiné juste pour nous, des oeufs frais, des conseils judicieux pour nos activités et nos achats, un souper de langoustes et j'en passe. Connaissant notre passion des animaux, ils n'hésitaient pas à nous faire voir des paresseux, des singes, des toucans, des opussums, etc. Tout cela à proximité de leur maison. La maison louée était vraiment très propre et très bien équipée, même une risoteuse. De plus, les vélos prêtés sont un plus dans cette aventure costaricaine. Il est évident que recommendons cet endroit.

Traumhaus mit super freundlichen Vermietern

  • 5 of 5

"Los Congos" ist eine offene Holzhütte auf Stelzen, von Regenwald umgeben, trotzdem gut mit dem Auto erreichbar und ca. 10 Minuten bis nach Puerto Viejo. Wir haben das Haus mit unseren Kindern (5 und 7 Jahre ) für 3,5 Wochen bewohnt. Es war traumhaft, genau wie auf den Fotos! Man hat von überall Blick in den Regenwald, wo oft Tukane, Brüllaffen usw.zu sehen sind. Das Haus ist sauber und alles funktioniert bestens. Wenn einmal ein Problem auftaucht, kümmert Mario sich umgehend. Die Vermieter wohnen direkt nebenan, man aber einen separaten Eingang. Sie sind super freundlich und herzlich, so wie man es sonst kaum erlebt. Die beiden Hunde der Vermieter waren für unsere Kinder grossartig!

Die Umgebung ist wunderschön, ruhig gelegen und untouristisch! Wir würden hier jederzeit wieder wohnen!

Danke an Mario und Gigi ! Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit !
