On the second floor there is an open air common area and hammocks for just napping, reading, journaling, yoga stretching, kicking back and drinking in the wonderful sounds of the symphony of the forest.

On the first floor is La Joya's fully equipped kitchen. And, if you’d
prefer a wood stove and a brick pizza oven, just walk to the nearby Pizza House. This is where one can opt to dine in, with sumptuous home cooked meals. La Joya, however, provides all its guests a daily breakfast upon request.  What a healthy start to your day exploring a little bit of paradise. Tropical fruits, fresh yogurt, and multigrain cereals are just some of the items offered each morning. All can be topped off with world famous Costa Rican coffee or, if one prefers, our own herbal teas cut fresh each morning.

Off the kitchen is our lower ramp leading to an orchid garden with laundry facility. Maid service includes the daily maintenance of the rooms and laundering of clothes or personal items guests may need tended to.

Finally, La Joya de la Jungla offers guests a unique opportunity to truly step back in time and savor tropical living in all its simple primitive beauty.

Evenings are perhaps among the most special time at La Joya. Illuminated by the soft warm glow of candle and lantern light, La Joya is truly an Island of tranquility and serenity. The sounds of the jungle come alive at night as crickets, frogs, and a host of other "musicians" entertain our guests with the soothing sounds of nature.

So, plan your trip to our tree house oasis now. If getting away from the often frenetic pace of modern day living is what you are seeking, you will appreciate our location; if experiencing tropical living in a rustic, remote, but comfortable setting is your goal, you won't be disappointed; and if finding a primitive place to just simply be one with yourself or some one you love, amidst the earthiness of nature … La Joya is the place for you.
