At "Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat" you are GUARANTEED to see WILDLIFE. How certain are we? Well, have you ever sat in a Tropical Lounge and viewed from your chair a Scarlet Macaw, a Monkey or a Kinkajou? You can at "La Chosa". Many guests have said they see more wildlife at "Chosa del Manglar Nature Retreat" than at any other location during their Costa Rica vacation.
