The Neighborhood

Sombrero is a small neighborhood located about 1 mile from the popular Cabo Matapalo area and 15km from the town of Puerto Jimenez. The beaches are rugged, pristine, and uncrowded. Cabo Matapalo, known by the locals as simply Matapalo, is a small community located 17 km south on a bumpy dirt road from the town of Puerto Jimenez. The area consists of a scattering of eco-lodges and rental homes with one local bar. There are no banks or grocery stores, so make sure to stock up in Puerto Jimenez before heading out. Over the years, Matapalo has become a surf destination. It borders a beach along the Pacific Ocean that routinely ushers in large swells. There are several areas to surf. The waves vary in difficulty, allowing for beginner to expert surfing opportunity. The abundant wildlife also makes this area popular among travelers. Four species of monkeys, scarlet macaws, toucans, sloths, agoutis, and coatimundis are just a small sample of the wildlife that one sees on a regular basis. The Audobon Society has named Cabo Matapalo one of the premiere bird watching venues in the world. Matapalo is where travelers go to be at one with nature and find ultimate relaxation. The pristine rainforests and rugged natural beauty of the Osa Peninsula make this region one of the most beautiful areas in Costa Rica. Declared one of the most biologically intense places on Earth by National Geographic Magazine, the Osa Peninsula has become the premier eco-tourism destination in the country. The Osa Peninsula is a secluded nature wonderland, playing home to many of the country’s rare and endangered animal and bird species, including squirrel monkeys, jaguars, and other forest cats. With a large chunk of the peninsula forming the Corcovado National Park, this area has the single largest expanse of lowland tropical rainforest in Central America and is one of the tallest rainforests in the world. The area hosts more than 375 bird species, a fourth of Costa Rica's tree species and more than (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) vascular plant species, many of which are found nowhere else on earth. The rain forest is made up of 700 tree species — the greatest diversity of tree species in all of Central America.

Getting Around

There is a local colectivo to and from Puerto Jimenez, however, we highly recommend renting a car. There are 3 rental agencies in Puerto Jimenez: Solid Car Rental, Alamo, and Toyota.

Other Things to Note

The property is off grid. Power is provided from solar panels. Standard 110 outlets available. Water comes from a well. Please bring minimal electronics and conserve energy and water. The cabin does not have wifi. If you need phone service or wifi, you can get a local pre-paid sim card in Puerto Jimenez. Your phone will need to be unlocked in order for the card to work. Make sure to get the Kolbi/ICE card. They're the only provider with service in our area.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
