A towering three-story treehouse set amid the jungle canopy, Punta Jaguar is the perfect base for your adventures on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. 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.
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.

Monkey and Wildlife Refuge Tour
The Osa Peninsula juts into the Pacific Ocean on the southwest coast of Costa Rica. 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.

Our stay at Punta Jaguar Treehouse was a wonderful experience for our entire family. The treehouse is absolutely lovely, handcrafted with so much creativity that it is astonishing. The Treehouse provided every creature comfort our family needed and more. We woke up every morning and watched the spectacular Osa Peninsula wild life swing or fly by. We feasted in the perfectly outfitted kitchen, soaking up the beautiful landscape with clear views of the Pacific Ocean below. We enjoyed our walk down to the beaches and into the jungle. Our hosts, Eva and Brian were so helpful and friendly, and made our trip really one of the most memorable ever. We can't thank you both enough!!!

Brian and Eva Lovely have created a vision of jungle life beyond imagination. I had even seen photos before arriving, and still couldn't believe my eyes. Saying on the top floor of their jungle tower, with sweeping views of the ocean and howler monkeys to wake me to the new day, I felt like a character out of a fantasy movie. Somehow like a princess, while being more deeply immersed in nature than I've ever been.
I recommend this for anyone who wants true remote and I disturbed Mother Nature, but still wants a 5 star stay. Ammeninites include hi speed Internet, luxury shower with a view of the ocean, perfect bed and linens, a tidy lawn all around for barefooted lounging and a beautifully designed kitchen. My girlfriend and I could not believe how special we felt staying here, and we both want to come back next year!
Super cool, absolutely beautiful setting perfect for introspecti

The "tree house" was so cool with special eco-touches such as the dining room table being made by the owner from a fallen tree nearby. We were met with Southern hospitality by the owners who assisted with every request we had both before and during our stay. It was an epic trip that we will remember and cherish a lifetime.
