Los Mineros Guesthouse, Puerto Jiménez, Osa Peninsula Costa Rica
This unique property, known as Los Mineros, is a genuine treasure amidst the Costa Rican tropical rainforest. Situated on half a hectare of mature tropical gardens surrounded by lush jungle, this property is a corner of paradise with a fascinating history.
What truly sets Los Mineros apart is its intriguing historical past. In bygone times, this place served as a bar, a jail, and a brothel during the exciting gold rush days in the town. This rich history endows the property with a distinctive character and a unique atmosphere that is hard to find elsewhere.
Los Mineros is a fully equipped and furnished lodge that can accommodate up to 25 people. It offers a variety of accommodation options, from cabins to double and quadruple rooms, and even an open-air jungle cabin with a natural spring-fed pool. This makes it the perfect place for retreats, family gatherings, or as a base for exploring the surrounding region.
One outstanding feature of Los Mineros is its natural environment. The garden is designed to attract over 150 species of birds, including toucans and scarlet macaws, making it a paradise for birdwatching enthusiasts. Moreover, the property attracts a diverse range of wildlife, from anteaters to squirrel monkeys, offering nature lovers a unique experience.
Los Mineros is located in the heart of the Dos Brazos de Río Tigre community, which is another reason to consider this property. The entrance to Corcovado National Park, hailed by National Geographic as one of the planet’s most biodiverse places, is just 50 meters away from the lodge. This makes it an ideal starting point for exploring this natural treasure, which attracts biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world.
Despite its secluded natural setting, Los Mineros is only 13 kilometers away from Puerto Jimenez. Puerto Jiménez offers daily flights from San Jose and a well-maintained, paved highway for those who prefer to travel by car. Dos Brazos Community, a place covered in tropical rainforest, waterfalls, and swimming holes, provides a sense of community and an authentic Costa Rican experience.
