Experience the most remote hostel in Costa Rica.  The Jaguar Jungle borders the Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula and is just outside of Drake’s Bay. It is only accessible by boat or hiking.  One of the planet’s most reclusive animals, the tapir resides there as well as many other types of rare and exotic bird, marine and wildlife. This private and secluded place offers comfortable lodging and a large variety of activities.

The entire lodge is operated with solar power and the water system is stream collected, filtered and disinfected with UV light.  All food and materials are grown onsite or brought in by boat.  The restaurant offers all 3 meals at a reasonable price and includes freshly grown produce and sustainably speared seafood.  A public kitchen provides a place for those who bring their own food.  All guests should be prepared for a rustic environment.

Jaguar's Jungle Biological Reserve

In the Jaguar’s Jungle Biological Reserve, we capture ocelots, pumas, and jaguars on our camera traps every month!

Jaguar Jungle has a biological station that contributes to the national animal monitoring system.  Camera “traps” are used to monitor the population density of all of the reserve’s species.  Jaguars, pumas, ocelots, margay, jaguarondis and other wildcats are observed for behavioral studies.

“This is a heavenly paradise on earth. We stayed in here June 2017 for 5 nights. The boat ride from Siepre is worth the ticket. We saw crocodiles on the river boat. Arriving at Jaguar’s Jungle we were greeted by the owner and many volunteers who helped us get our bags off the boat. ”
