The casita is a surrounded by a tropical garden with many types of trees including mango, banana, citrus, avocado, papaya and many exotic tropical hardwoods, plants include orchids, ginger, and heliconias.

The beach is a two minute walk and normally you will have the beach to yourself, there is a fishing point close by.
Local activities include trekking into Corcovado park for a day or multi day overnight stay at La Sirena Ranger station or on a private reserve. You can also go ocean and mangrove kayaking, go on a canopy zipline tour, surfing, and fishing. We highly recommend doing a boat tour within the Golfo Dulce (sweet gulf), which is a tropical fjord with dolphins, turtles, and twice yearly there are Humpback whales and Whale Shark migrations for breeding. Other activities in the area include visiting a cacao farm and see how chocolate is made (!! consuming some is mandatory !), or just relax on the front deck of the casita or at the beach and watch the monkeys and birds in the trees above.
We can arrange transport, tours, lodging, and activities in Costa Rica and book guides and permits for Corcovado national park.
Our house is located 8 km South from the gas station (La Bomba) in Puerto Jimenez, on the road to Corcovado National Park and Cabo Matapalo.
