The property sits on 4 acres which wild animals traverse twice daily, once in the morning and again in the afternoon. The property is a camouflaged collection of rooms and cabins connected by trails, paths & bridges supplemented with hammocks, garden sitting areas, & open-air lounges. Nuzzled in a strip of jungle-land which pierces the neighborhoods of a small, travel friendly beach-town, the large grounds are part of a main diurnal and nocturnal throughway for a diverse collection of exotic animals. A stay here, is a true jungle experience but within a 5-minute walk from the Osa Peninsula’s human center: Puerto Jimenez. Visitors routinely report that they see more wildlife here than at many other Costa Rica locations. Common wildlife sightings on the property include: Four species of Monkeys, Kinkajous, Raccoons, Coatis, Anteaters, Sloths, Armadillos, Raptors, Toucans, Scarlet Macaws, Crocodiles, Lizards, Snakes, Hummingbirds, Iguanas and many other Birds, Insects and Reptiles. All animal photos on this website were taken on the premises. We created La Chosa to give people a tropical lodge experience at a reasonable price. Our accommodations are for people looking for simple, authentic experiences without paying to be pampered. However, we do vigorously maintain a modern level of cleanliness and comfort amidst the primeval Osa jungle and wild tropical waters of Pacific Mangrove. The property was designed as a hub to relax and transition into, or out of the intensely magical Osa peninsula, adjacent to the rich Pacific waters of the Golfo Dulce and within short drives to world-class beaches offering great surf and the Osa’s primary travel destination: Corcovado National Park.
