About B&B Jardín de los Monos

Playa Matapalo, Costa Rica

2 Min. walk to the Beach & Monkeys in the 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.

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! 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. Matapalo offers sufficient dinner options (4 restaurants & several soda’s). 2 Restaurants are on walking distance from our Bed and Breakfast (1 km/ 0.6 mi). But Playa Matapalo is not suited to visit without a (rental) car; no ATM, no Taxi’s and the nearest bus stop is 2.3 km (1.3 mi) away.

We spent 2 nights in early December at this wonderful B&B. Lettika and Gijs were excellent hosts. We are 2 couples who stayed in the new Double Deluxe rooms overlooking the newly constructed pool that was a perfect temperature. The rooms were very tastefully decorated with comfortable beds and very efficient, quiet air conditioners. The large shower was also lovely. We enjoyed sitting out on our private patios overlooking the garden and pool. Breakfast each morning was delicious sitting outside watching the monkeys swing from tree to tree. Also on site was a sloth with her baby and Lettika pointed out a hummingbird sitting in her nest.The nearby beach was lovely for long walks.Lettika and Gijs, thank you for your hospitality. We wish we had stayed longer and hope to be back some day.

Jardin de los Monos is the perfect place to relax. The whole property is very well maintained with a beautiful garden and nice pool area. Our room was great as well and we loved waking up seeing monkeys from our window. Also there are sloths living in the trees around the guesthouse and the beautiful empty beach is just a very short walk away. After being able to see wildlife in this relaxed setting you might get a bit disappointed if visiting some of the more popular national parks later. On top of this the owners are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is delicious. We would love to return.

We loved everything! Beautiful, quiet place away from the tourist scene but located so it’s just a short drive to so many places and things to do(Manuel Antonio park, Uvitas whale tail, Nacauya Falls) to mention a few. Great little restaurants just a few minutes drive away with tasty food. Wonderful owners, very friendly and helpful with everything. We watched the monkeys swinging in the trees as we ate our tastey breakfast each morning of Dutch pancakes, eggs, smoothies and the best coffee. Lots of hummingbirds and butterflies in their beautiful well maintained gardens. Comfy patio set and hammock outside each room to relax and enjoy. Bed was very comfy and great air conditioning. Garden/pool view rooms are my favorite. Nice new pool but also just a 2 minute walk to an amazing beach. It’s not crowded like so many others, you can walk forever and sometimes you are the only ones on the beach. We travel yearly and this place it one of our favourites. We would definitely come back and stay here and I’m hoping we can!!

My partner and I spent 2 nights at Jardin de los Monos and we absolutely loved it. The B&B is sparkling clean, the beach is a 1 minute stroll away and is breathtaking, and Lettika (the owner) bakes the best bread in Costa Rica and serves her guests wonderful breakfasts. This place is a must go if you find yourself in the Matapalo area.

About your hosts Lettika & Gijs

We are a 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. We live here with our two sweet cats ‘Friemel’ & ‘Boef’ and our adorable dog ‘Texel’.

So come by and enjoy the ´Pura Vida lifestyle’ with us!
