We stayed here for 3 nights either side of staying in a rainforest hostel and doing a trip into Corcovado. The owner was a really lovely person who brought us freshly made fruit juices when we arrived, and whenever we looked too hot!

Rooms are fine and clean, but there are other cabinas in the area for the same money where the staff might actually help you out!

Good place to Stay in Puerto Jimenez, just around the corner from the local bus station and from Colectivo to Carate. The best location. There is also a super market just around the corner. Very clean and they take groups! Also, hammocks. rocking chairs makes it a nice place to hang out!

You can sit outside in the garden, watch the birds... Wifi reception in the rooms. The kitchen is clean. What else can I say....

We stayed one night at the Cabinas Back Packer in Puerto Jimenez before going to Corcovado. Our guide from Surcos Tours made the booking for us as they don't have a website which is a pity. We had a room with a double and 2 singles and air-conditioning which was a blessing after a week on the Pacific Coast as...
