Perfect for four guests, you’ll enjoy being in nature at this hut. You’ll also have access to the Pacific Ocean, which is just a stone’s throw away from your very own front door. Sleeping options include one double bed and one bunk bed, making this an ideal family option. There is also plenty to see on the farm and it is located near the downtown area.

Listed as the only private property on the site, you’re guaranteed peace and quiet in this rainforest location. In fact, you’ll be based in the heart of a cacao-chocolate tour near Tortuguero National Park. Inside the 32 meter squared (344.4 foot squared) waxed-wooden room, you’ll find hammocks, bunk beds, a private bathroom and plenty of space to comfortably host up to three people. You’ll have the best of both worlds at this property, as the beach is only a short walk away. In fact, you can see the lagoon from the front porch of the hut.

Although in the heart of nature, with the sounds of animals such as monkeys, birds, frogs and even sloths, the city center is still just 50 meters (164 feet) away. This is perfect if you want to experience jungle life, yet feel a little bit timid and would like easy access to the other necessities. You’ll also love the fact that the ocean is just 200 meters (656 feet) away from your hut.
This property is ideal for three people. The upper level has bunk beds and there is a single bed on the lower level. Guests are welcome to use the communal and well-equipped kitchen. You’ll also have access to hot showers (somewhat of a luxury in the jungle) and these are just 20 meters (65 feet) from the property.

Located on the same property is the adorable hut made entirely by hand with cane. We love that the roof of the property is transparent, so you have plenty of light but can also look above and see the birds and the other creatures passing overhead. It is worth noting that the cabin has a fan to use during the hot weather. There is also a mosquito net, so you can be rest assured of a good night’s sleep.
This quaint property has a bench, table, and a private garden. You can also take full advantage of the warm-water showers and well-equipped kitchen, which includes complimentary essentials such as coffee, tea, sugar, and salt.

The third hut on the same jungle property is this beautiful and spotlessly clean bamboo hut, which is equipped with one queen-sized bed. The hosts at this site are also happy to help with booking tours and excursions. If you’re interested, you can even take part in the farm tour, where you’ll discover poison dart frogs, glass frogs, and the famous red eye leaf frog. The hut is located under a mango tree with a transparent roof that lets in plenty of light, but keeps the heat out.

This hut is a little more accessible and is suitable for wheelchair users with a machine width of 1 meter (3 feet). Unlike our other properties, which are primarily made from natural materials, this listing has a cement floor. Two of the walls are open-air, but are equipped with curtains and mosquito nets. In total, the hut is 12.5 meters squared (134.5 feet squared) and is ideal for up to three guests. Be sure to do the night tour during your stay, as it comes highly recommended by previous guests. You can also access the communal kitchen, grounds, and garden area.

With waxed flooring and a fantastic porch area, you’ll soon feel right at home at this hut. This property is ideal for a romantic getaway and is located on a hill, surrounded by trees. If you’re lucky, you might even be able to spot a sloth hanging out in one of the trees. Hot showers are available and the site feels very private.

Host:such a great oasis and the staff was very friendly and kindRead more reviewsclose to everything and always felt safea beautiful location and friendly and welcoming staff
This rural property is nestled in the heart of an indigenous reserve and offers a unique experience for those of you that are a little bit more adventurous. This is a great option if you enjoy hiking, as you can access many river and mountain walks in close vicinity. Although a hut, this structure has an official name, an uslê. It is a traditional house of the Bribri people, the indigenous community that lives that in this area.
The property is comprised of two floors and, although it has a roof, it is mainly open-air and built on stilts. In total, up to six people can comfortably stay at the property with six single mattresses, a hammock, a shower, and three toilets.
