        Bolita is magical. It's the perfect place to enjoy Costa Rican nature and wildlife.

        Had the most amazing time. If you'r into nature, this is your place. Be prepared to hike beautifull places and enjoy great kindness from the owner and volunteers. Book several nights, because you will extend your stay anyway.

        I'd like to know if we get to see lots of wildlife while staying at Bolita. I saw that the hostel is in the middle of the rainforest but on the outskirt of Corcovado NP. So do we get to see many animals on the trails or is it still preferable to hire a guide for a day to visit Corcovado. and if so, what are the approximate fares? Thanks.

        Hey there, I would love to come and help out at this hostel as a volunteer! I have about 3 weeks starting March 14 until April 3 that I would love to experience the deep jungle and live among the wildlife near Corcovado park. I've been in Costa Rica since January and the Osa Penninsula is on my list of places to stay! Please let me know if we can arrange something! Can't wait to hear from you!! -Maddie
