Boca Sombrero is an exclusive ocean front paradise embedded in the amazing rainforest settings of Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. Our spacious beachfront property has been landscaped with care to promote privacy and to welcome wildlife. We have eight thatched-roof tent cabins and three beautifully designed vacation rental homes, Casa Rio Sombrero, Casa Playa Sombrero and Casa Troya.The houses and tent platforms are just steps away from Playa Sombrero as well as the mouth of Rio Sombrero, an excellent place to take a dip in fresh water. Playa Sombrero is known for having nice gentle waves that are great for learning to surf and cruising on a long board.The property boasts a bamboo framed, beachfront yoga platform. Guests are welcome to use the facility for their own practice or set up private yoga classes with a local instructor.We also offer a wide variety of activities that will give you the opportunity to explore the rugged beauty of this unique part of Central America while kayaking, climbing trees, rappelling down waterfalls, or simply zip-lining through the forest canopy.Of course you are also welcome just to relax by the pool, have a spa day, a massage, an acupuncture or one of the many other treatments offered by the therapists of our small cosmopolitan local community.Here at Boca Sombrero we are dedicated to making your stay with us as exciting, pleasurable and as healthful as possible.
My husband and I stayed in Casa Rio for a week and have never enjoyed a vacation more. The casa is artfully designed and very beautiful, just a short pathway from Playa Sombrero beach. Though not a swimming beach, it is popular with surfers and...More
We had a wonderful time at Boca Sombrero for a yoga / surf weeklong retreats. The hosts are amazing and very responsive (thank you Monika), the site is gorgeous, and the food on retreats is OUTSTANDING (thank you Lily). This is a gem!
This place is in a class of it's own. It's glamping, and feels like it's situated in a zoo. Be prepared for monkeys (capuchins, howlers, spider monkeys), ara's, iguanas, hermitcrabs, agouti's, butterflies and hummingbirds.... and those are just the conspicuous sightings! There is no airco,...More
Loved this place! Stayed with 2 small kids and they loved it too, we were all sad to leave. "Glamping" is a perfect description. The host was very nice and one of grounds keepers came over to show us some wildlife! Very quiet, secluded. Bug...More
Pros: Safe, quiet ocean front property, well maintained, housekeeping very attentive, all meals beautifully prepared, the staff, especially Monika, are wonderful and are truly invested that you enjoy your stay, surfing is within easy walking distance and works at all tides except peak low tide...More

Fly into San Jose, Costa Rica (SJO) Juan Santamaría International Airport (Spanish: Aeropuerto Internacional Juan Santamaría) is the primary airport serving San José, the capital of Costa Rica. The airport is located near the city of Alajuela, 20 km (12 miles) west of downtown San José.
Then you can either fly to Puerto Jimenez, take a shuttle (I do this sometimes--I have a great driver and it is hassle free, then I rent a car when I get there) OR you can rent a car and drive. Beware that the 2 airlines that fly around Costa Rica have low weight limits for luggage. If you are travelling light, it works.They have 3 different rates according to weight of luggage. Sansa and Nature Air fly to other cities (small craft). They fly right into Puerto Jimenez. If you want my drivers name, let me know. I have friends in Costa Rica. That is how I got his name. The shuttle ride is at least 6 hours but someone else is driving. The new highway opened up couple years ago so it is much better. If you rent car, be sure to rent 4 wheel drive and get a bigger jeep/SUV--not small. Depending on the time of year you may have to drive thru small rivers. I have rented from many places--been to Costa Rica 15 times. Don't rent from Solid. Terrible. Toyota in Puerto Jimenez is new, very good vehicles, good rates. Contact Tristan at Osa Rainforest Rentals for additional help. He is probably the best manager of rentals in the area (honest, extremely helpful, very nice, very involved with the community and well-respected by the locals--it makes a difference) Have a Blessed Vacation. p.s. Once you are at Boca Sombrero, take the dolphin tour. there are some other interesting resorts I have visited but not stayed yet. I love this area so much. I love the Arenal area too--the volcano/ hot springs.

"I stayed in a house (1 has a small pool, another has a big pool), so I don't know the tent situation."
