“Wonderful place to rest and relax or be as busy as you want.”

Reviewed 15 May 2013

We loved our stay with Jim at his cabanas. They are clean and accommodating. He is an excellent host who knows the area well. He is willing to help with your travel needs. His place offers all the sounds of the jungle, with macaws, monkeys, etc. The beach and ocean are excellent. Water is warm and wonderful. The fresh fruit is delightful. I highly recommend his wonderful place.

“Off the Grid”

Reviewed 10 May 2013

I was looking for off the grid...a place to breathe and escape the noise of my daily life. I found that and more at Cabinas Ola Mar. Although, at one point, I wasn’t sure I’d even get there…it’s a journey in and of itself to get there. But, I was looking for off-grid…and that’s what I got. Jim (God bless you) was a great help in getting me turned around and on the right path to what eventually ended up being my nirvana. After arriving at Casa Titi…clean, airy and literally built under a tropical canopy, I quickly realized I wouldn’t be alone during my stay. From the birds and the monkeys to the insects and the crashing waves, the sounds of the jungle and ocean brought me back to center. I had finally arrived. Jim gave me the run-down of the amenities and a brief tour to get me started. I unpacked my supplies and headed straight for the beach wear I spent my first night. Why? Because nobody was there to tell me I couldn’t. HA! Day two brought an amazing sunrise and more exploring the tropical beauty, snacking on fresh mangos and breathing in the incredible delight of seclusion. The diverse plant life alone was enough to keep me fascinated for weeks or even months. The monkey’s came down from the canopies in the afternoon to visit and share in a snack. Life here is simply abundant, which is weird, since when I left Texas I was looking forward to not being around any “life.” I’m glad I had a chance to get that cleared up in my first-world-problem thinking mind. Bed time came too quickly, and having just rained, the mosquito draped bed served me well…bug spray too! Day three, Jim pointed me to the waterfalls where I found myself not wanting to change a thing. A slip on a rock reminded me that I might be in heaven, but I am still mortal. A quick first-aid clean up and bandage job by Jim, and I was back at it…exploring the endless hiking paths at a pace that screamed of peace. My intent to travel to a remote location for rest and rejuvenation happened exactly as I had imagined. They have Wi-Fi, but I didn’t need or want it. I was there to disconnect from the Matrix. They have clean sheets and bathrooms, so I wasn’t exactly roughing it, but I was most definitely ridiculously successful in getting what I wanted. So, BIG thank you to Jim, to the monkeys and the parrots and the ocean and the trees and the crashing waves. I’ll be back…soon!

“This is a great place to stay while you experience the Osa.”

Reviewed 9 May 2013

In the interest of disclosure I am a friends with Jim and we were among the very first people to stay there. I went with two friends and we all really enjoyed staying at Jim's place on the Osa. We also appreciated having the option of using our own kitchen as opposed to staying at a hotel. The houses are very close to the beach and a short walk to a great bar and restaurant. Lots of Scarlet Macaws and other wildlife are neighbors. One morning we saw howler monkeys lounging in the tress right behind the house. The closest beach is beautiful, wild, and practically deserted most of the time.
