"I wanted to take the time to write a review for families like ours - we were just at Jungla del Jaguar with our 6-year-old and 9-year-old. We were nervous about how they would handle a place with no AC, the boat ride from Sierpe, and the Corcovado one-day hike we had signed up for. EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING. Our kids have done a ton of car camping and we drag them around everywhere but they are not the world's toughest kids. They had a blast. We actually loved that there was no AC. We could feel the ocean breezes and hear the waves at night, compared to some of the hermetically sealed places we'd stayed in previous nights. The boat ride was a fabulous adventure, there and back, and the kids, for once in their lives, did not grumble about walking for 5+ hours because our guide, Yaznir, was so funny and knowledgeable about the jungle. Everyone was so kind, especially to our kids. The food was tasty, the drinks delicious, the location gorgeous. I wish I could have stayed longer, just looking at the ocean and palm trees from the bar/restaurant.
We stayed in a fancier resort for a few nights in Manuel Antonio, which had its own charms, but this is the place I will be raving about for years to come."

Memories for a Lifetime!

Our recent trip to Jungla Del Jaguar was one of the best adventures our family has ever been on. It is truly a special place and we have been talking about our experience non stop since our return. The amount of wildlife was unparalleled. We loved picking coconuts and mangos each day and exploring the trails. The snorkeling trips to Cano Island are no doubt etched into our children’s memories forever!

The accommodations and jungle setting were only outdone by the amazing staff. Suzanne and Leo welcomed us into their home. Our host Adrian spent time showing us around the property and teaching us about various plants and fruits. Our guides Yasneer, Anibol, and Fabian felt like extended family by the time we left. It was wonderful to see their passion for exploring nature and teaching others. The chefs prepared amazing dishes and we were always looking forward to meal time. And we will never forget Eddy, who always had a smile on his face and would happily serve up fresh fruit smoothies. His impromptu dance parties with the kids was an added treat.

If you’re looking for a typical beach vacation, go somewhere else. If you want an experience that will change how you see the world and bring your family closer together, then I would highly recommend Jungle Del Jaguar.

Raised the bar for our holiday of a lifetime! Welcoming, relaxing, comfortable and special for each and every one of us.

5 star in every way!
An unforgettable few days relaxing, enjoying and taking in the peace and wonderful surroundings at Jaguars Jungle Lodge.
The staff (Rob, Eduardo, Taylor and the most amazing kitchen staff) went out of their way to make us feel so welcome and special. The accommodation was so comfortable and spacious; the location was unbeatable for sunset views, Cano Island trip, jungle walks, beach swims. And the food (all three meals plus afternoon tea and cake!) and cocktails have made everything else pale in comparison (my daughter is taking the quinoa balls recipe on when home!).
Sitting at the bar, feet dangling in the breeze looking out over the sea towards Cano Island whilst watching capuchin monkeys play and toucans fly overhead…with a cocktail in hand is something that will be hard to beat elsewhere. Thank you to all the staff who made every moment so special. Go there, but be warned it will be hard to leave!!

Outstanding stay

Our family of five (kids aged 9, 12 and 15) visiting from the UK had an outstanding stay at the Jaguar Jungle Lodge. This place is a true paradise set amidst stunning sunsets, landscaping, flora and fauna. It was friendly and welcoming, unpretentious and easy going. We stayed for five nights in the loft room and did guided and unguided jungle treks, snorkelled (on the property and Cano Island), swam on the property and also at beautiful beaches with no-one else around and we had unforgettable wildlife encounters including close encounters with Puma on two occasions when they visited the edge of the property. The lodge provided good meals and very attentive service, amenities like reliable WiFi, hot and filtered drinking water, and well stocked bar. It’s clear the staff work very hard and this contributed to an amazing time here for our family. If you are visiting Costa Rica and looking at the Osa Peninsular I recommend going here.

Great balance of wilderness and accommodations.

Jaguar Jungle Lodge is such a great balance of accommodation and remote wilderness adventure. My Family of 4 (6 and 8 year old) stayed in one of the cabins for 5 nights. We did most of the tours and the kids swam in the local beach pretty much the rest of the time. We saw a ton of birds and wildlife on the property and on the guided hikes. The kids loved all the sea turtles on the Cano island snorkel and spinner dolphins on the boat ride out. Rob and all the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was so good too. I highly recommend this unique experience.
