Lodge & Hostel
Welcome to the 'most biologically intense place on earth.'
– NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC
Jungla del Jaguar is the most remote jungle lodge in Costa Rica. Our 130 acre beach-front property is located right on the border of Corcovado National Park. Our unique lodge and hostel is the best place in Costa Rica for free and independent jungle hikes, exclusive eco-tours, as well as volunteering and student research groups.
We can also customize Corcovado tour packages to suit families, couples, and solo adventurers alike. Including multi-day treks, Caño Island snorkeling and diving adventures, whale and dolphin watching, horseback riding, fishing charters and more.
Our small family of on-site staff are always available to point you to our huge network of free hiking trails. You can also try your hand at fishing, snorkeling, kayaking, or surfing, just a stones’ throw away from your cabin. Explore Corcovado and it’s surroundings in a genuine off-the-beaten track experience.
Jungla del Jaguar is the only affordable lodge that shares it’s jungle with Corcovado- the little Amazon of Costa Rica. Even just sipping a cocktail on our balcony bar, you could spot scarlet macaws, 3 different species of monkeys, coatis, tayra, or even a tapir. Our property is also a botanists’ dream- teeming with exotic fruits, medicinal plants and native flowers.
Our free jungle trails offer even more wildlife spotting opportunities including countless bird, reptile, and insect species. You could even spot a group of peccary, anteater, or one of our elusive big cats.
Student groups and researchers are welcome at Jungla del Jaguar. Contact us for information about volunteering and group packages.

Reading Tropical Nature at Jungla del Jaguar is like being in an episode of Planet Earth! This book describes some of the incredible animals and natural phenomena that happen right in our forest, and being there to see it while you read it is a wonderful experience. We cannot recommend this book enough, especially if you plan on exploring Corcovado or our private forest.
