We call it the Mango Loft because it is second floor and surrounded by blooming banana and mango trees, offering shade and fresh fruit. The Mango Loft is brand new, completed in 2014 with solar hot water, new appliances including gas stove, convection and microwave ovens and full size fridge. A cork floor, bamboo furniture and large screened windows keeps it close to nature and sustainable. It has front and back locking doors, gated parking, and a couple of outside landscaped patios for your enjoyment. Pots & pans, dishes, all utensils are stocked plus linens and towels.

The Chirripo River flows just a stone's throw away providing lots of cool breezes as well as meditative water flow 24/7. RIver access is just outside our gate... enjoy swimming, wading, rock collecting, soaking up the energy of the big ancient boulders in the ri...

About the neighbourhood
Barrio San Francisco de Rivas, 20 minutes northeast of San Isidro de El General (aka Perez Zeledon). San Francisco is a small rural community with one road that goes in and out so we have no through traffic. The road from San Isidro to the entrance of Barrio San Francisco is paved with about 400 meters of gravel road leading up to the Mango Loft property. This is a very small community with no businesses or attractions that would bring in people who do not live here. All the neighbors know one another and many are related. The outstanding feature of San Francisco is the beautiful and powerful Rio Chirripo.

Driving directions from San Isidro,
proceed south on the Panamerican Highway for about 1 km (from the center of town) passing over a bridge. At the lights after the bridge turn left up the road past MaxiPali toward Rivas and Chirripo National Park. When you approach Rivas cross a river bridge into the town passing shops and a church to the end of the paved road. Turn right onto an uphill paved road. Continue past town of Guadalupe, cross two tiny bridges to a green pulperia on right with a gravel road and a bus stop with sign pointing to Barrio of San Francisco. Take the right at pulperia, cross the river and turn right following the river to the Mango Loft. First three gates on left facing river.
