Authentic Bamboo Cabin Rental with Rainforest & Ocean Views on Osa PeninsulaMatapalo, Puntarenas (Costa Rica)
This charming bamboo cabin comfortably sleeps six to eight people, with three or four bedrooms and queen sized beds. Guests can relax in this tropical paradise on luxury mattresses, or in the outdoor hammocks in the garden. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with a solar refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, and stove. However, due to the handcrafted wooden interior and tasteful furnishings, this cabin has retained its authentic charm.
This cabin brings you even closer to your tropical surroundings, with its two outdoor porches, overlooking the ocean below. There is a large dining room with handcrafted hardwood table and a fully equipped bathroom with a hot shower and bath tub. After a long day of sunbathing and jungle activities, glampers can enjoy the outdoor shower too.
The fresh water supply in the cabin comes from a nearby rainforest well, and throughout their stay, guests are invited to make use of the beach chairs, towels, linens and boogie boards.
Although this property feels at one with nature, glampers need not sacrifice any of the luxuries of modern life: Wi Fi and 3G signal is available in the cabin, and the cabin has 110-volt outlets which can charge electronics (although internet connection can be slow at times). The host provides a daily laundry and housekeeping service, and staff can attend to any enquiries via the 24 hour reception service. Read More

Location + Surroundings
Located on the Osa Peninsula, where tropical rainforest meets secluded beach, this remote paradise is truly unspoiled. The surrounding rainforest (known as Costa Rica’s “little amazon”) is home to an exceptionally diverse range of plants and animals, and between two and three per cent of the flora of this region exists nowhere else in the world. The properties overlook the Punto Banco mountain range, and Volcan Baru – a dormant volcano.
The ecosystem here remains intact, and low levels of pollution make for exceptional star-gazing. This accommodation is just a stone’s throw from the pristine Pan Dulce beach. Glampers could not ask for a more glorious setting for a tropical beach getaway. Read More
- Bird watching
- Water sports
This accommodation offers pristine, secluded beaches and majestic rainforest surroundings for those who seek peace and relaxation. Glampers can relax in their hammocks and enjoy the sound of the tropical wildlife and the surf. Hosts lay on yoga classes and massages in this rainforest setting, and beach-combing is especially rewarding on the sands of Pan Dulce.
However, for those who seek adventure, this place has it all. The pristine beaches are internationally renowned surfing sites, and can also offer excellent shore fishing. Thrill-seeking glampers can participate in waterfall abseiling, coastal jungle hikes, kayaking, and even soar through the canopy on a zip line.
Exploring the exceptionally diverse wildlife and rainforest is a must. Glampers can participate in guided forest and sea tours, or can take themselves on more informal adventures on foot. Guests can expect to see iridescent butterflies, iguanas, and exotic birds. There are four species of monkey in the area, and these majestic animals have even been known to scamper through the yard!
