La Palapa Hostel offers a tropical lodge experience without the tropical lodge price tag and we did it in the center of a unique town, Puerto Jimenez, not miles from nowhere. You can actually walk everywhere. Our accommodations are for people looking for an authentic, tropical experience. We strive to maintain both a healthy level of cleanliness & comfort in this crazy wild spot between the primeval Osa forest of Corcovado & the abundant tropical waters of the "Golfo Dulce" & Pacific ocean.
