Built with unique, breathtaking views of the ocean and jungle, Punta Jaguar is alive with the myriad species of birds and animals of the Osa Peninsula – one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Situated 500’ above sea level, Punta Jaguar is cooled by constant sea breezes and serenaded by the sounds of the jungle all around. Your jungle adventure destination Combine equal parts adventure and tranquility and you’ve got the Punta Jaguar experience. Lovingly hand-crafted by the Lovelies—Eva and Brian Lovely-- and local artisans, the accommodations are luxurious but simple, artfully crafted from a mix of local woods—purple heart, teak, manu—and local materials. The hand built spiral staircase, hand crafted furnishings and cabinetry and artful windows to the outside world reflect the Lovelys’ deep sense of respect and love for this amazing location. And the location… beautiful water views of Cabo Matapalo will inspire you to catch a wave from one of the many local point breaks—suitable for any experience level. Saying that you can “see wildlife” here doesn’t do it justice. Capuchin monkeys, Scarlet Macaws, sloths, humpback whales, eagles, hummingbirds, titis, howler monkeys… these are the neighbors, and make regular appearances. The protected Corcovado National Park next door shares its incredibly wealth of bird, animal and plant life with us. Activities Punta Jaguar and the surrounding area offer something for everyone. From world class surfing to world class birding. Hiking, fishing, horseback riding, exploring the multiple diverse biospheres, or just relaxing in one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, your adventure here begins and ends with the natural world at our doorstep.

The area’s diverse geography includes beaches, lowland rainforest, mountains, and rainforest. More than 80 percent of the land area is protected by Corcovado National Park and holds a wealth of endangered plant and animal species. Miles of unspoiled beaches are complimented by lush mountainsides teeming with wildlife. Remote and pristine, Cabo Matapalo—where Punta Jaguar is located-- lies at the southern tip of the Peninsula and is a secluded destination perfect for honeymooners, surf lovers, sand lovers, nature lovers and lovers in general. Bandito and Black Hawk :  The trusty and beloved security force behind Punta Jaguar will herd you in the right direction. Bandito is an Australian shepherd that enjoys long boarding with Brian and Eva, welcoming you and most of all giving love. The black hawk you’ll see on the property has been blessing us with his presence for two years now. He is the guardian of the property and is slowly becoming one of our most trusted protectors. He is completely wild, and if anyone is a pet it is most likely us. He comes and goes at his own choosing, but usually comes daily to say hello and rest on his perch on our home.  More
