Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre is set in the midst of the protected zone of Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve. Our three El Tigre houses are wedged between lush rainforest and South Puntarenas’s largest river, the Rio Tigre. The rich forestation surrounding our homes hide a number of waterfalls, swimming holes, tributaries and trails that traverse the land many of which lead to old mining routes. From all of our Dos Brazos homes you hear the sound of rushing waters of the Rio Tigre, abundant wildlife and exotic birds.

La Casita del Rio is situated right next to the Rio Tigre close to the center of Dos Brazos so there are neighbors but as well surrounded by lush secondary growth rainforest, with sounds of exotic birds and howler monkeys in the distance. With uncrowded nature trails, waterfalls, jungle scenery, this is the perfect location for exploring Corcovado National Park and the Osa Peninsula. Off the beaten track, yet only 12 km/7.5 miles from Puerto Jimenez.
Please note that you must cross a river to reach La Casita del Rio but this is not an issue as a new suspension footbridge was built in February 2018. From April to December at times you may not be able to drive to the property, if this is the case it is only a 5 minute walk to the house. 4x4 vehicles required.
