Breathtaking Views, Exotic Animals and Wildlife, Romantic, Relaxing, FIRST CLASS Luxurious FIVE STAR

We just returned from our stay at Tres Palmas resort in Costa Rica. I have been around the world more times than I can count. I must say that this was one of the most stunning settings. It's located on the Osa Pennisula which boasts an abundance of exotic plants and animal life; only second to the Amazon basin according to local guides. After a forty minute bumpy drive from the Peurto Jimenez airport, which is the nearest town, and down a very steep curvy driveway, we drove through a tunnel of hibiscus flowers which opened to an Oasis of flowers, views and animals in a pristine boutique resort setting. The resort itself is equivalent or better than any five star island destination - except it is “off grid”. Mostly powered by solar - so leave your blow dryer and curling irons home - you won’t need them! The architecture and colors were exotic and vibrant - no expenses were spared on construction or landscaping. What a magical experience lounging in the infinity pool perched at the edge of a cliff overlooking the pacific ocean. The cabana cottages were romantic, private and luxurious. We were greeted with bright colors, fresh tropical flowers in our room daily and comfortable furnishings. The attached outdoor shower, with hot and cold water, had views of the ocean. It wasn’t unusual to see monkeys swinging in trees overhead or scarlet macaws and toucans perching nearby. What made this place so unique was the animals were in their natural wild environment. I’ve been to Africa where you drive to see safari animals. The animals at Tres Palmas are at home, you don’t have to go on a road trip. You are living amongst them in the jungle. The howler monkeys would call out before first light in the morning. Throughout the night we heard exotic sounds reminiscent of Jurassic park. If we fancied a dip in the ocean, we walked down the 350 plus steps under the cool canopy of the jungle. We swam in the warm Pacific ocean and watched the surfers catching waves. We were ready for dip in the pool after climbing back up the hill.

Don’t pack for dressy dinners in the distant town! Bring your bathing suits and casual clothes, as well as, comfortable shoes suitable for hiking. A small flashlight is handy for exploring at night. Everything you need is at Tres Palmas. Nearby horseback riding, waterfall hikes, fishing and whale watching were fun but the best times were lounging by the pool and exploring the resorts property.

 Magical and one of a Kind Home!

The home has a spectacular setting! It is in the middle of the jungle with absolutely amazing views of the ocean. There is plenty of wildlife right at the property, from macaws to toucans to howler, capuchin and spider monkeys, to much more! The swimming pool is perfect. The staff is truly a great bonus to this amazing property. They are super friendly and accommodating and ensure to make your stay just right. The food is out of this world and we truly experienced the Costa Rican culture!  

The access to the property is an adventure in itself and will require a 4x4. There is a beautiful waterfall hike from the house that is a must-see. Très palmas is a wonderful destination! Thank you for everything.  

 Breath Taking Comfort

This place is incredible. The staff is very professional. The food is outstanding. And the massage therapist is out of this world. 5 days was not enough. Very relaxing atmosphere thanks you guys

 10/10 - Everything was Perfect!

Everything about this place was amazing. Just read the other reviews - I won't repeat it all here! The rooms, the staff, the wildlife - everything was better than described.

We were a family of 12 from age 6 - 75 and everyone had a wonderful time!! My only concern is that you will rent it during the week we want to come back!

The setting is stunning and the views are amazing from this elevated vantage point. It offers more than Corcovado could for the casual visitor. Eduardo Castro, the owner of the property also gives his Costa Rican perspective on land conservation.

 AMAZING!!! 10/10

Been to Costa over 15x over the pass 2 decades. This was the best place I have ever stayed. The housekeepers were awesome ! The food is incredible the view the wildlife 10/10 !!!!

 Great Option on the Osa

We had a great experience at Tres Palmas. Beautiful location, great accommodations, and all the amenities you need for a memorable beach/jungle vacation. We were a party of eight- all family members ranging from young adults to grandma. Brad, the property manager works with you to arrange flights, car rentals, excursions and meals. This was our second trip to the Osa this year and we will be back again, I am sure. So much natural beauty, so many animals, such a welcoming place! And Tres Palmas is a perfect base from which to launch your daily adventures! In fact, just getting there is an adventure. We cannot wait to come back.

 Perfect Vacation for Adventure Seekers

We love Tres Palmas! This was our second trip. On both occasions we traveled with another family. This time our group was 4 adults and 5 kids (ages 7-12). This place is not easy to get to, but that is part of the charm. It is truly luxurious, and is such a special place to come "home" to after a long day exploring the HOT jungle, or surfing, horseback riding, ziplining, kayaking, tree climbing, or just a day at the beach! The kids were in the infinity pool at sunrise and pretty much any time we weren't out adventuring! Marvin, Yerlin, and their family are just incredible hosts. They think of everything. We had them shop for us and prepare and clean up all the meals and it is well worth it! Such a treat to not have to worry about feeding everyone and they do a great job of catering to everyone's needs - we had 2 vegetarians in our group and they always made extra veggie side dishes etc. The food is fresh and delicious. Definitely have them make you their ceviche and the empanadas - just 2 of our favorites. The wildlife is plentiful and we saw much of it just lounging at the house. The tours that Brad (the property manager) helped us set up were amazing! We were very busy and active while we were there, but you could easily do much less than we did and still have a wonderful time. Brad was very helpful to work with and we really appreciate all the effort he went to.

One of the best vacations we have ever had! We were sad to leave, and hope to be lucky enough to return again!
