About Us

Jungle HouseCharlie’s Jungle House is located in pristine Matapalo Beach, Costa Rica, a magnificent natural habitat dramatically set on a secluded beach where we cater to your every whim. It is the culmination of our dream, our vision. We were its architects, its builders and ultimately its occupants.

Jungle House is a family owned and operated business. Don’t be surprised to see Charlie’s little grandson enjoying the pool or “helping” attend to guests. If you are looking for a resort atmosphere, Jungle House is likely not for you. We are a small nature lodge and guesthouse focusing on personal attention to our guests.

Playa Matapalo is a destination where you decide just how busy you would like to be. If your agenda calls for relaxing beach side with a good book and a tropical cocktail, our family and staff will be on hand to tend to your every need. Enjoy and feel the beauty, perfection, harmony and peace of nature with us in your rustic and comfortable seaside suite.

However if you want to pick up the pace a bit, our competent and eager concierge will be happy to inform and reserve any number of tour options available in our area. These include but are not limited to: Horseback riding, canopy adventure at Hacienda Baru, Rafiki kayak tour through the estuary, white water rafting or surf lessons with the locals.

One thing is for sure, at Charlie’s Jungle House you will be able to leave all your troubles behind and enjoy the pristine setting of which we are fortunate to host.

Uniquely situated between 2 National Parks (Manuel Antonio to the north, Uvita Whale Marine to the south) we know you will enjoy discovering all of the adventures our pristine special destination has to offer.

Oh and did we mention we have been doing this for over 30 years!
