Four Monkeys House -Cabo Matapalo Surf is located in Playa Tamales and offers a private beach area, water sports facilities and a terrace. We have spent 3 weeks all over Costa Rica looking for a place like this: all elements were reunited. the beach house is big, with fully equipped kitchen, comfy bedrooms and clean bathroom. all is ecological and it’s a great bonus. Nice furnished terras in the jungle inviting to relaxing bird watching (red macaws are nesting on the propriety !!!), or crazy monkey show (we saw the howling, spider and squirrel monkeys the same day in the garden). The owners were adorable and offering assistance at all times. And then, there’s your own private beach! you can even surf there but we just went for walks while watching the sunrise at 6 am this time. Nothing more needed but you can get more by exploring the Cabo Matapalo beaches and jungle trails. We had lunch at Martina’s a couple Km from the house and food was simple and good. Hopefully we’ll come back and see how everything has evolved <3
Set 984 feet from Tamales Beach, Four Monkeys Eco Lodge offers accommodations with a shared lounge, a garden and a shared kitchen for your convenience. Such a lovely place. We stayed in one of the "tents", it feels more like a cabin though, super comfy, no bugs inside, very cute decor, nice bed, nice bathroom, nice little porch in front. Falling asleep and waking up with the jungle sounds. The place is right on the beach, where you can find different waves in walking distance, and usually no other people around. If you wanna surf the famous spots you just drive 10minutes. They have a gorgeous garden, with all kinds of flora and fauna. You can use the shared kitchen which is nice and big and clean and has everything you might need. And the best are the people. The owners are really nice and very welcoming and helpful. We often sat together on the porch and chatted about the day. Four monkeys felt like home from the first second on. If you wanna be immersed into nature but also be comfy, right on a quiet beach with wonderful jungle around you, this is your place. I couldn't imagine a better place.
Set within a 1000-acre private nature reserve in Central America’s last remaining lowland tropical rainforest in Costa Rica’s wild Osa Peninsula. This resort is probably one of the coolest and more unique places I will ever stay in my life. The location is just unbelievable. It was an experience that I will never ever forget. Sleeping to the sounds of the rain forest, the outdoor shower, enjoying coffee in our bed wrapped in mosquito net. Just SUPER cool. With that being said this property has SO MUCH potential but they fell short so many times in our short 3 day stay there. For the money that we paid for this resort it should have been a flawless amazing time for two extremely easy going people. Sad to say - the staff/execution of things need some work. If you plan to stay at the Lapa Rios you are going to need a 4x4 rental car or arrange for some kind of pickup/transportation. If you do plan on renting a car I would suggest that you do so only if you are very comfortable driving. You will be driving on very rough terrain, across streams that may be high if they have had rain, across narrow bridges without sides and going up some seriously steep hills. I love driving and found the 30 minute bumpy drive really fun but I can see how some might be miserable. Corcovado National Park hike is a MUST. They offer tours right through the facility but they are insanely inflated. Maybe we weren't the right clientele for the Lapa but just consider your options. The included food menu was really wonderful and if you are a normal person without a lot of dietary restrictions you are going to be living the good life!! The location has its own self guided trails and some beautiful waterfalls that you can walk down to. All in all it was an amazing experience and we have great memories from staying at Lapa.
