An amazing place with a wonderful & lovely couple. Puri Mas is just PLEASURE and was our favorite place during our trip in Costa Rica. Claudine is an amazing cooking and we suggest to taste her breakfast / dinner and the fresh Bread !! Ghyslain and Claudine have good tips to organize your trip and activities around the Peninsula and we recommend to enjoy the Puri mas place which is also a treasure within the Peninsula de osa. We strongly recommend Puri Mas but you have to go and live there to understand... Pura vida Philippe and Hélène
Casa Anak is a real house with a large bed room and a large bath room inside. Outside, below the cotto tiles roof, the fully equipped kitchen surrounds the table. It's located in the forest but in a open area so it is possible enjoy the view of the breathtaking panorama as well as the visit of wild animals (squirrel monkeys, tucano, lapas, iguanas, parrots, different kinds of bird as well as butterflies and a lot of other that you can hear). They are totally free. The quality of the sleep is fantastic, surrounded by the forest sounds. The owners Claudia and Ghislain are very kind and friendly and always available for suggestions and help. It is also possible enjoy the trail in the forest of their property reaching the base of a huge Ceiba tree and the cocoa trees. In spite to the fact of the forest location the cleaness is at the top level. What else? Of course a lot ... but better everyone experiments personally it.
If you're looking for affordable jungle luxury in one of the world's most beautiful places, Puri Mas is perfect. I've stayed in many places on the Osa Peninsula over the years, and I would re-book here in a heartbeat. The lodging is impeccably built and designed to make one feel comfortable and luxurious while being as environmentally conscious as possible. The trails and surrounding forest are lovely. Macaws and monkeys are the only thing that could interrupt your sleep. Claudine and Ghislain are amazing hosts. Total thumbs up.
Our stay at Puri Mas was wonderful is so many ways. The guest house was amazing. It is like new and had everything we needed. It comes with a full kitchen if you wish to make your own food or just have some snacks in the fridge. The bedroom is a nice size with closets and shelving for plenty of storage. The bathroom is also very clean, roomy and well laid out. The deck out back gives wonderful views of the jungle to watch the toucans, macaws, monkeys and other jungle animals. The optional outdoor shower was great for cooling and rinsing off after a hot hike through the jungle. There are hiking trails on the property which wander through the jungle, along the river, and amongst the cacao and banana trees. What a wonderful introduction to the overall experience. The main house is beautiful and was great for having a meal or just chatting with the hosts and looking at the amazing views of the jungle and Gulfo Dulce in the distance. Speaking of the hosts Claudine and Ghislain are extremely helpful and accommodating. They can arrange tours, give advice on where to go and what to see. They were extremely helpful. If you want they can provide breakfast and/or dinner. If you get the chance I would do this because Claudine’s cooking is amazing. Many of the vegetables and fruit comes from right on the property and the tastes are superb. Overall they provide a delightful experience. If you are wanting a getaway that takes you into nature but at the same time have great amenities this is the place for you. Take the hosts advice and if you rent a car (which I would recommend) make sure it is a 4-wheel drive because you are driving into the jungle. A rugged drive but well worth it. I can't say enough good things about it.
We enjoyed our stay so much. It was a beautiful jungle experience. Saw many wildlife, scarlet macaws were playing in the big tree in front of our terrace. We opted for breakfast and dinner, and this was so good. It was long ago that we had such extensive good eats ! Very delicious and perfect hosts, we had a great time. Sitting outside sharing travel stories the whole evening until late. We are planning to move to Osa and they are very knowledgeable about the area. The house is beautiful and has all the comforts, set in the wild jungle. The property has hiking trails, you can walk to the river and to the big impressive ceiba tree. The outdoor shower was such a joy. Happy there were no mosquitoes or biting insects, we sat outside the entire time. Thanks so much for an amazing time, we miss you and your perfect jungle spot already.Het was geweldig ! We zullen zeker nog eens terug komen. Dank jullie wel. We hebben een fantastische tijd gehad !
