We stayed for 1 night prior to travelling to Corcovado. Booking was easy, by e-mail and no deposit asked. We left our bags and car in care of Mark and had no problem. Very close to the airstrip, which was convenient for us as we were flying in and out. For our family of 4 the deluxe room was quite... More

We spent one night here in July, the off season. The rooms are arranged around a central courtyard with picnic table and cooking facilities. Another group staying there was up late cooking, drinking, and being very loud. Good management would have asked them to quiet down. At least post signs. We were also unhappy with the checkin process. No one... More

My friend and I stayed here the night before our hike to Corcovado and the night after our hike. Mark and Lee were accommodating, friendly and extremely helpful. I felt comfortable and loooooved the outdoor shower. When I go back to Puerto Jimenez, I will definitely be back to the Cabinas Tropicales. Gracias amigos!

A safe, clean and peaceful place to stay in Puerto Jiminez, with a beautiful outdoor kitchen. We hung out the first day, enjoying the hammocks, hummingbirds and other birds passing by. Later that day, Mark helped us organizing our trip to Corcovado. He knows the best guides and organizes everything right away for you. We had a guide named Bolivar,... More

Stayed here for one night, preparing for a 3-day trip in Corcovado. We arrived early morning and it was no problem to already enter our room. The host is very friendly and helpful, showing you around and giving good tips for places to visit in the area. We loved that we could use the bikes for free.

Cabana Tropicales is a wonderful hotel for those interested in fishing the waters of Costa Rica, but it is also a take-off spot for experiencing the warm hospitality and native flavor of Costa Rica.

We stayed here for 2 nights, it is a lovely place. Beautiful garden with lots of flowers and birds, very clean (and quite new?) air conditioned rooms with good showers - just what we needed after hiking in Corcovado in 33 degree heat!!
