The "Jungle Lodge" is a private dwelling on our tropical forest retreat. We are within walking distance to a colorful rural community of fishermen, surfers, artists and cowboys (Playa Negra and Avellanas.) We are also blessed with a secluded local beach a short walk away on the pristine Pacific ocean. Hand-built with hardwoods from our land, the second floor lodge is like a tree house immersed in nature with wildlife all around- monkeys, parrots, iguanas, & lots more.











 

Помещението
The “Jungle Lodge" is an upstairs apartment in a totally private tropical house. The lower floor is unoccupied. Nestled privately on nine acres of forested land next to a seasonal creek, it is a 5 minute walk down a tree-lined lane to pristine Lagartillo beach. The open air floor plan, which feels like you are in a tree house, features a ready to use kitchen with ceramic tile countertops, 4 burner gas range, refridgerator, stainless sink, pots and pans, and all utensils for cooking and eating. The Guanacaste trees towering overhead and large screened windows on all four walls provide excellent natural cooling and light. Included is a queen size bed and a single bed, clothes closet, kitchen table, fans, wireless internet, washing machine (on the palm patio). The arty magic mushroom shaped bath house offers a cool shower with a view through colorful, jungle portholes. Hand-built by the owner, Maicol, with hardwoods off the land, the tropical house is surrounded by wildlife with 360 degree views of the peaceful (Casamaicol) retreat where the family has worked and lived since 1994. It is very restful, a meeting of birds, howler monkeys, and the ocean. From the faucets comes pure water from an underground spring. It is healthy and tastes excellent. The palm covered porch is spacious (22 by 50 feet). It has hammocks, a picnic table and is great for yoga and deep relaxation. Peaceful sleeping.

Guanacaste Province, Коста Рика

This is a small, rural, beach community of fishermen, surfers, and cowboys, where everyone knows everyone else. Visitors are surprised by the friendliness of the locals. One feels a warmer and more sincere reception than some other more touristy places. The famous surf spot, Playa Negra, from the movie, "Endless Summer Two", is a half mile to the south. The broad, white-sand beach, Avellanas, lies only a quarter mile to the north. Just beyond that is “Little Hawaii” a perfect right wave. We are located right in between these two beach communities. At our Lagartillo beach, which is 300 meters directly in front of us, the outer reefs protect the shore from waves and the fishing boats are anchored at little Punta Pargos. The calm water is favored by many of our guests with children who enjoy immersing in the warm tide pools while they watch the sunset over the westerly ocean.
In the nearby village of Los Pargos, which is adjacent to Playa Negra, there are two small grocery stores while popular Las Tecas offers a wide selection of international products such as virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sea salt, brown rice. Wine and beer. Quite eclectic choices.
Also in Los Pargos is a skate board park. There are SUP board rentals and tours offered, surfboard shops, and bike rentals. There are at least a dozen good restaurants in the pueblo offering a wide range of cuisine and snacks. For those lazy days we enjoy having a beer at Hotel Playa Negra which has an especially fine atmosphere directly in front of a world class surf break. There is a beach volleyball court, the games are on Wednesdays(URL HIDDEN)If one wishes to wander northward to Avellanas, then traverse around the rocky point along the beach or take the high trail on the bluffs which offers a spectacular view of the Pacific ocean. Lolas, the open air beach side restaurant, is named after the gigantic body surfing Pig. Margaritas can be enjoyed beneath cool palms. Just walk another hundred meters to the estuary where a long boardwalk crosses the wetland reserve to Las Olas restaurant. On the beach road is the Beach Box where you can find affordable burritos and good down home cooking. There is no lack of rustic old Tico style cantinas if you search to quench your thirst. There are hiking trails through the forest that lead from one coastal oasis to the next.
If you prefer the economy, healthiness and convenience (and fun) of preparing your own meals, we are glad to assist our guests to find groceries. Delivery trucks come to our property selling inexpensive fruit and vegetables and sea food. Eating in Guanacaste is an experience in itself.
In the months between December and June are the civic fiestas. Each small town in the area takes their turn in hosting the peculiar Costa Rican style of bull fight, where any man can enter the ring and challenge the bull. For the events the town inhabitants build a wooden rodeo ring, taking it down the same week. The bull always wins.

A Word from Maicol – Twenty-three years Ago & Now It can be hard to visualize a destination, even when you have photos, maps and graphic descriptions. To give a better idea of the area, I'd like to describe how I came to be here and why I love living in Lagartillo, Costa Rica (Website hidden by Airbnb) am an organic farmer and herbalist, surfer, recording artist, carpenter, mechanic, electrician, welder, with a MA in spanish. It is a small community where people greet you when they pass. It’s not one of those eco-tour commercialized places where there is crime and the locals are burned out on tourists. I came here years ago and upon seeing the contours of this property and the way the hill rises gradually upward to catch the afternoon sea breeze, I knew my search was over. The local geographic area is known as Dry Tropical Forest and is found in small parts of the west coast of Central America, southernmost Mexico and Africa. It is very unique, having distinctly changing seasons and a huge range of wildlife, forest and grasslands. This land had been abused and the soil depleted; a lot of trees were cut for cattle forage and planting corn. Bernabe, who lives on the adjacent farm, sold me this place. We met in ’93 while I was camping on the beach a few hundred yards from here. He came riding by on his horse. I prefer to have abundant land and since there was a seasonal creek and good underground springs; I became the owner of 9 acres of scrub and small trees. Electricity, phones and decent roads still hadn’t come to the area so I lived like my Costa Rican neighbors without modern conveniences. Living in tents on the hill, the rains poured down, and a hastily put up gable roof was the beginning of our ever- evolving house. The local Costa Ricans cooked with wood fire, grew corn and beans, milked the cows and made cheese. Water was pulled up from the well by bucket. (There were out houses in everyone’s back yard) Those days were memorable. The only telephone for miles around was in a shack in Paraiso, where a club footed man dialed your number, and people would go to listen in on everybody else’s conversations thereby getting the latest news and gossip. Not many of the neighbors had cars then. Bernabe likes to tell the story of when he rode his horse straight over the mountains, 30 kilometers, all the way to Santa Cruz to go to high school. Gradually civilization has come here and the beaches are very popular. Living here in this tropical forest really reminds me of when I lived in the back woods of eastern Oregon. I started from scratch there too, on 40 acres, where I built a log house and planted gardens. It seemed similiar in some ways except it’s hot here and you only have to take a short walk on a tree lined dirt road to the blue Pacific ocean. I grew up in S. California and surfed at Malibu and Rincon. I lived with some hippies in Topanga canyon and rode a 1946 Indian motorcycle, then I moved to Oregon; but I always had the dream of someday living in a tropical paradise by the ocean. In 1988, while living in Guatemala I met a Costa Rican woman and her mother on a bus. She told me about her native land and invited me to come visit .That was the beginning of a long back packing trip and a love affair with the country (and the girl). I really liked the Tico families I lived with. They are basically an agricultural society and their traditional culture reflects an awesome awareness of nature. The tranquil attitude and natural spirituality really appeal to my sense of balance. My CR friends and family have really helped me to understand what this place is all about and the value of good coffee and conversation. Luckily, I was a Spanish major in college because communication is the key. And patience. After buying the land, (in 1994) I began planting trees and encouraging the growth of the native species that were already here. Now, years later, there are some towering giants. There are ten times more species of trees than in Oregon and it takes a long while to learn all their names and uses. Ron Ron, Pochote, Cocobolo. The Guanacaste tree, for which the province is named, is an incredibly fast growing monster. Someone should write a book on all the medical uses of plants here. (perhaps I will) The wisdom is still with the older people but fast disappearing. The average Guanacasteco doesn’t read or write too well, but he is a walking fauna and flora library. And proud of it (Website hidden by Airbnb) cut some trees and milled lumber for three small guest houses. Each house is kind of nestled into the forest. For each tree that was cut, 10 more were planted. The whole tree is used, including branches to make furniture and there is less waste. All the different colors and smells of the wood grain are so pleasant. The sea turtle project volunteers patrol late at night protecting the nests. If you are lucky you might see the amazing baby turtles erupt out of the sand. The water is warm and quite clear and blue due to lack of pollution. We are not near any large bays or huge rivers which usually result in contamination. Journeys down the dirt roads going southward along the coast are interesting. It is still kind of primitive and I especially like the lovely bahia of San Juanillo. I’m glad that our Lagartillo has stayed pretty much the way it was years ago (except for power, phones, internet.) It is so quiet here. All you hear are the sounds of birds, monkeys and waves. No barking dogs or loud drunkards. In 2012 I started the Indio Pelado organic farm up at lake Arenal. Now we are harvesting a great variety of fruits and veggies from north and south America.

I'm here most of the time and when I'm not here I am usually working at the Indiopelado organic farm on lake Arenal. Should people choose to socialize with me I'm glad to share my experiences. If people just want to be alone I know how to respect that also. I have a 10 year old daughter and she likes other kids. She only speaks Spanish but she would like to practice English. Surfin safaris and lessons arranged locally upon request. We are pretty relaxed here and I want our guests to enjoy their stay. I have lived in Costa Rica for 23 years, I am bi lingual, and I am an expert at assisting guests with their vacation plans. I have been doing this for many years although I am new with Air bnb. We try to leave something to eat or drink in the fridge for newly arrived guests. We also can provide a "loaner dog" or a guitar or a beginner surfboard. If you need something, just ask.
