We had an unbelivable stay in the Deluxe Dream House ! Hosts are very nice and helpful, beach is close and animals are just in front of the door (even on our terrace). A very quiet place where you can appreciate the intensity of Costa Rica's nature.

I could stay here for months ;) Eco houses nestled in a private jungle on the beachfront. Monkeys, Sloths, Frogs, Agouti's and more roaming around. It's family run, and the team there are great. Lovely grounds and characterful and well equipped spaces. Totally recommend!

Our family stayed for a week at this amazing location. Not only was it a beautiful walk through the jungle to the beach, but the beach was quiet, great waves for our young kids to learn to boogie board, and we saw every kind of animal, lizard, insect imaginable! The hosts were so responsive and helpful and provided us one of the most memorable weeks of our lives. We would definitely recommend this to anyone who really wants to get a feel for a true Costa Rica experience.

We spent a week at Congo Bongo EcoVillage and it exceeded our expectations! During our stay in the beautiful ‘hut’ we didn’t see and almost never heard other people —- we were immersed in the jungle experience with Howler monkeys every day, birds, butterflies, and beautiful trees and plants. Our living quarters were excellent. They cleaned our clothes every day. The beach is a 5 min walk and the village of Manzanillo was a 15 min walk. Several restaurants to chose from and a grocery store allowed us to stay fed without needing a car. We weren’t able to rent a bike in manzanillo so had to venture up to Puerto Viejo for that, which exposed us to another set of beaches and restaurants.

We had a great time in Congo Bongo. We were warmly welcomed and cannot fault any part of the experience or accommodation. Being in the jungle means, of course, that there is wildlife all around, sometimes coming to visit you, but I think this is exactly what you are looking for if you choose this accommodation. The owners were very knowledgable and conscientious and really made our stay special. If I could have stayed here long (or moved in permanently) I would have. Really hope to be able to go back again soon!
