At Casas La Selvatica we offer an unforgettable rainforest immersion experience. Beyond comfortable accommodation, you will experience the sounds, scents and sights of the jungle with its amazing flora and fauna. Better yet, you will be only minutes away from a picture perfect beach, grocery store and restaurants. The setting is ideal for couples or families who appreciate the comfort of an entire home rather than a hotel room, and the cultural experience of living in an actual local neighbourhood, surrounded by locals. Casa Grande has two bedrooms, one bath and two dens, comfortably accommodating up to four people. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a large outdoor dining area. Casa Mango is a one bedroom home with walk-in closet, private bath with hot shower, Wifi, kitchen, outdoor porch with dining table and two hammocks facing the garden! Outstanding guest assistance prior to arrival and concierge service while on-site. Added safety and security because of on-site concierge.
