How wonderful to find such a lovely new restaurant so close to home. Osa Thyme may very well become one of our favorites. Although the food selection was small, everything we had was amazingly creative and delicious, and the service was wonderful, which is surprising for such a new restaurant. I am sure we will be seeing much more of Osa Thyme. ❤️
The cottages are very basic but clean. Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed. Common area is a pleasant place to lay hang in hammock and wait through the midday heat. Location is ok, close to the beach, around 1,5km from both Punta Zicatela to the south and Playa Zicatela to the north. Great vegan/vegetarian food is served, affordable and healthy breakfasts plus a family dinner (not every day) in the evening. Friendly cats (especially the black one).
While visiting PE, we ate at the Osa Mariposa twice. There was one vegetarian, one vegan and 5 omnivores among our group. No matter our preferred diet, we all loved the food and drink here! Big hearty helpings of fresh foods at great prices; what more can you want? While our Spanish is less than stellar, the servers were kind and tolerated our poor Spanish, and it was easy to order from the menus as they were in both Spanish and English. I had breakfast tacos one day, and pancakes another. Both were just awesome. Definitely try the hisbiscus tea- I would not have thought to try it myself, but we ended up ordering a pitcher it was so good! I had a different smoothie each time that was equally awesome. (Gotta stay hydrated in PE)! The second day we stayed longer and had a few tequila coffee drinks, yum! The cafe is located within the Osa Mariposa hostel, a chill and laid back place that we loved. We considered staying there, but as a woman of a certain age I know I need A/C to sleep in Mexico, so we had to pass. We did take a peak at the bungalows; they were rustic but super affordable and the common area was lovely. We enjoyed the little pup and cats at the hostel, too- I think we were all missing our own critters by that time. I'll be coming back on my next visit for sure- I'd like to try the family style dinners at night next time.…
We rented a three bedroom cottage, the hostel is located close to the beach with a very beachy and great atmosphere. We really enjoyed staying there, the breakfast was amazing (try to hot cakes) and we also ate the vegetarian dinner during night which was amazing. The place is super chill and you feel like home right away!
Chill little hotelito with small bungalows available. Food is really good, and is what attracted us to the place. A good alternative to the local Mexican food, which sometimes isn't cooked with the most healthy ingredients (i.e. manteca) :) Beach is closeby, but not so safe for swimming, but perfect for surfing as La Punta is closeby, which is one of the best breaks in the area. Other spots are closeby. Call a taxi to the hotelito anytime to get driven anywhere in town. Mosquitos exist here, but also everywhere else. Beds have nets. WiFi is decent and the shaded communal area is nice to relax in after surfing or walking the beach.
