    Such a wonderful place. My friends and I first planned to stay there for two or three nights, but we finally decided to extend our stay for six days. There's a positive vibe surrounding the site that will get you immersed on first day. You can see and do a lot around the hostel, as you can also take it easy, reading or sleeping in the hamacs. I recommend the hike to Rio Claro. It's an easy and more contemplative walk that gets to wonderful and refreshing waterfalls.

    I loved my stay in Jungla, so much that I already dream about going back! It is definitely a place you should go if you want to spend time in the Costa Rican jungle. The people are cool, the place is amazingly beautiful and it is really easy to feel welcome. You can do a lot of trekking all around the property for free, without a guide, which saves you a lot of money considering that the Corcovado tour is 90 USD. Only thing you need to know : there is no store or town close by (closest is two and a half hours walk) so you should think about bringing yourself food! They sell breakfast (7 USD), lunch (8 USD) and dinner (9 USD) there, but this and the food you bring are the only options you have. However the food there is really good and the plates are very big and fulfilling. Looking back, my stay at Jungla was the best part of my trip and I'll do it all over again if I could. This is the kind of place you can't forget.

    The Jungla is a unique place far away from the tourist traps where you can see all the wildlife in the osa peninsula without a tour guide. It's totally secluded and the best place to escape from the rest of the world. You can see whales right from the beach in front of the hostel and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the mornings. Spider monkeys and scarlet macaws regularly make appearances in the trees on the front lawn and the tapirs show up at night. If you want to see wildlife and go on crazy adventures without shelling out a lot of cash this is the place to be.

    This place is amazingly beautiful and secluded! I volunteered at Jungla del Jaguar for about three weeks, and I had a really nice experience there. The nature is beautiful, the people you meet are wonderful, and even the food seems to be unnaturally good. I can definitely recommend this place for anyone looking to get closer to the jungle, and themselves.

    Easily one of the most beautiful and secluded places I've ever experienced in my life. TRUE PRIMARY FOREST! Loads of wildlife and beautiful beaches. Breathtaking trees, cliffs, and waterfalls. Further, Leo (the owner) and his team actually care about you. They really give attention to your experience and the environment. They run the hostel in an extremely responsible and reasonably priced way. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic experience in the pacific rainforest. The meals are also delicious.

    Such an absolutely beautiful place. Bring food with you as there are no stores nearby.

    Super remote! They have several hiking trails to explore, and we saw way more wildlife on our quiet hikes than when we paid a hefty fee to see Corcovado with 50 other people. You may even get to help process coconuts into water, milk, fruit, and oil.
