“If we could score 10 points for Anja's hospitality, we would do it. Like everyone else, we were greeted with a cup of tea in the garden and provided with good tips. Anja's little kingdom is very quaint, cozy, the dining area is designed with great attention to detail, her staff Elena and Adonis are very helpful and nice. Our little cabin had everything you need, including the morning monkey roar. If you are looking for a true jungle experience, this is the place for you. Our tips for a stay at Anja are: make sure the horseback ride with Melvin, because you get a very different perspective on the rainforest, we also liked the snorkel tour with whale watching and of course the tour through the Corcovado. In culinary terms we can recommend the restaurant Carey in Drake Bay, which is also recommended and advertised by Anja herself. Juan Carlos is an excellent chef and you have to try all the fish of the day. We would love to come back and recommend Anjas Paradies!”
Our buildings are right next to the ocean so you can fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean and the rainforest. Our property boasts 130 acres of Primary rainforest to explore right on the border of the Corcovado National Park. In order to arrive, you most take an hour and a half boat ride from Sierpe, or a 15 min boat ride from Drake Bay. The boat leaves Sierpe at 11:20am and Drake Bay at ~12:30am. We have a bar/restaurant on the property with many options on the menus.
“Jungle Del Jaguar was amazing! We spent one week there and had a great experience. We dove two days at Caño Island, spent one day at Corcovado National Park, and we did the extended night hike with Jasner (probably spelled wrong...) (from jungle Del jaguar). All of the activities were arranged by Kimberly and she kept us informed and answered all our questions. The diving was superb, great visibility and we saw a lot! The National Park was also excellent, we saw a lot of wildlife, from small insects to monkeys, tapirs, and anteaters. This is definitely a place you want to stay! You can see and experience so much, even just on their property alone! All of the staff is incredibly friendly and wonderful - shout out to Kimberly, Matt, Lucas, and Jasner! We had a lot of fun getting to know everyone, playing games, fishing, swimming together. We felt like we left having made some new friends :) We really hope to be back one day!”

“Wonderful! I would give the Tico-Gringo cabins more than 5 stars if I could. The cabins are located in a peaceful setting, with many towering tropical plants and flowering bushes. Sitting on the balcony, I saw so many colourful butterflies and birds, including toucans and parrots, as well as little white-faced monkeys. Gringo even puts fruit out in front of one of the cabins to attract the birds for you. The location is great, with around a ten-minute walk to the beach and restaurants, and a five-minute walk to the nearest market. The rooms in the cabins are large, bright and clean, with well-equipped kitchens. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly all the time. Best of all are the hosts, Sonia and Yeiner (known as Gringo). They live on the property so are always there to help you. They are generous, kind and friendly. Sonia keeps your room clean, replacing towels and bedding regularly. Watch for her artistic touches. Gringo will help you organize tours, recommend restaurants and suggest hikes that are not so well known. They make sure you always have a big container of fresh drinking water. Staying at Tico-Gringo made my vacation extra special, and I would definitely stay there again.”
