Bolita Hostel - If you want to be immersed in nature, this is the place to do it!
Right beside corcovado national park
If you want to be immersed in pure nature, this is the place to do it! With many waterfalls and beautiful ocean views, Bolita is a semi-sustainable hostel on over 61 hectares of rainforest in the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. It's bordered on one side by the beautiful Rio Tigre, and on the other side by Corcovado National Park, one of the most bio-diverse places on earth! We are nestled in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, next to the small gold mining village of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre.
Stay in the original farmhouse. Hear the birds and Howler monkeys every morning as you watch the sunrise over the Golfo Dulce. There is an updated kitchen, roofed picnic table, and hammocks for relaxing. For sleeping, you have a choice of comfortable dorm style beds complete with mosquito nets, or a private tent, all at just $12 pp/n including trail use!
