2 min. walk to the beach & monkeys in the garden

Our Bed and Breakfast in Costa Rica is located 2 minute walk from the beach and surrounded by a lovely tropical garden where monkeys and sloths are seen very regularly. Observe them from your hammock at your outdoor living area or from the lounge deck next to the swimming pool. You can cool down in our pool enjoining a refreshing drink from the swim-up bar. Our 5 rooms come with a big king size bed, a private bathroom, a private patio and are cleaned daily. You can choose between rooms with AC or without; we also have 1 very spacious and private ‘Suite’ available. We are proud of our wide breakfast menu; freshly made. Try out our homemade bread and Dutch pancakes! We want to provide our guests a quite and peaceful atmosphere, which is the reason why our Bed and Breakfast maintains an adults only policy.

Escape the crowds!

B&B Jardín de los Monos is located in the peaceful beach community of Playa Matapalo Costa Rica near Quepos and Dominical. Considered a hidden paradise by many. Nonetheless, very easily accessible over newly paved roads (the last part is unpaved but no 4×4 needed). Enjoy this gorgeous beach and its long views in privacy; no crowds here! Matapalo offers 3 restaurants and several soda’s (local restaurants). Our Bed and Breakfast has only 1 restaurants on walking distance and it only serves dinner (about 1 km/ 0.6 mi). The nearest bus stop is 2.3 km (1.3 mi) away. For this reason we really do not advise you to visit Playa Matapalo without a car (Dominical is a better option if you really want to travel with public transport). The Bed and Breakfast is centrally positioned to explore the stunning natural beauty of the region. Tourism high-lights as; Manuel Antonio National Park near Quepos, the lively surf village of Dominical, Nauyaca waterfalls, Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita; they are all on a short driving distance from Playa Matapalo Costa Rica. Heading to Corcovado National Park? Jardín de los Monos is the perfect stop to enjoy a couple of beach days and unwind.

About your hosts Lettika & Gijs

We are a young couple from The Netherlands. After years of research and planning we made the move to Costa Rica in June 2014. We even backpacked for 1.5 years through Latin America to find THE best place for us. We believe we found that in Costa Rica, it is an amazing country where you are always close to nature and the people are just wonderful.

Ever since she was a little girl, Lettika wanted to have monkeys in the garden, we found this here at Playa Matapalo. That is also the reason why we named our Bed and Breakfast Costa Rica ‘Jardín de los Monos’. We love living on this unspoiled beach and being surrounded by nature and wildlife and Gijs enjoys the great surf, which is just a 1 minute walk away. We live here with our two sweet cats and dog.
