If you are truly on vacation and want to rest, relax and are looking for Tranquility, this is it. Our four spacious villas have two large rooms, the bedroom and living/eating area, a large walk-in closet that can be locked for your security, a bathroom with double sinks and shower, and a large terrace on the front side for your enjoyment of the sunsets over the Pacific, and the jungle animals and birds in the canopy. While we have DSL internet, we hope you will leave the modern world behind and enjoy the peacefulness of nature, the beauty, and your immersion in the moment. This is really it.
We are centrally located near Ojochal, the Terraba river mouth, Tortuga and Ventanas beaches and within a short drive to Uvita, Marino Ballena National Park to the North and Sierpe , and the new airport to the South. If you are looking for that very special, off-the –beaten-path, close enough but not in touristy Uvita, in the cooler hills, then the Mango Tree is for you.
This jewel of a location is perfectly situated, above the Coronado River, next to a small “Tico” Pueblo, and in the gorgeous foothills of the primary rainforest, with its natural sonorous ambience and beauty. There is no highway noise, only the mesmerizing sounds of the birds, the cicadas, the river and the rain storms.
The closest and most favorite beach on the coast is “Ventanas ” with its caves that you can walk into at low tide. Some of the best deep sea fishing, snorkeling, trips to Caño Island, the mangroves, whale and dolphin watching can be found in nearby Sierpe. We always recommend trips out of Sierpe that include all of the above for the price equal to one of these activities out of Uvita. The OSA Peninsula and Corcovado Park are best accessed from Sierpe as well. We are 40 minutes from Sierpe and two hours from the amazingly beautiful mountains and coffee plantations of San Vito in Southern Costa Rica.

We can boast that very close by are some of the best restaurants in the whole country. There are three in nearby Ojochal: Citrus (incredible), Exotica (French) and Ilang Ilang (Indonesian). Besides these, there are two “tipico Tico” restaurants in Coronado (2.8 km), and two wonderful Tilapia farms in Punta Mala (Vergel 4 km) with excellent meals.
Groceries and supplies are readily available either to the north in Uvita or to the South (our favorite) in Palmar Norte at the fruit stand. Shopping for supplies is getting easier and more convenient as well, as our two local small grocery stores are expending. They even offer a delivery service. Some walk to the store in the early morning for supplies. We grow our own pineapples, bananas, papayas and other exotic delicacies for your pleasure and our chickens supply us with fresh eggs daily.
What also makes this wonderful place so special is the Tico pueblo just below us. From there you can enjoy a very private horseback ride, hike to several amazing waterfalls and rivers, swim in the river pools or just mingle with the community.
Some visitors have come and offered to teach English in the local school while others have sent college students to participate in the rural development of the community. We do all that we can to interact with the pueblo, to mingle and help them, and in return the interaction we have with them is very helpful and far from touristy.
Come to the “Mango” and experience a very real, TRANQUIL, personally catered and reasonably priced vacation.
