Ecolodges, Property & Services - You've stayed in hotels, now stay in our Manzanillo rental houses!


Congo Bongo Ecolodges is a family-run property featuring eight vacation houses for rent in Manzanillo, South Caribbean, Costa Rica that's close to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Limón.
We are located in the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge and the property itself is about 6.5 hectares (15.6 acres). It's nestled in a private nature park and tropical garden with plenty of wildlife.
Only 200 meters away from the houses you have a private pathway that accesses the fairly private stretch of the beautiful white sandy beach Manzanillo, just a little west of the village Manzanillo. It's a little nature tour of its own.
We welcome guests from all over the world and all ages who rent our houses in Manzanillo, from 0 to 80+ - everyone is more than welcome.
We give more services than most hotels and give more than just a key!
Congo Bongo Ecolodges is also very popular for family reunions, retreats and weddings as every Congo Bongo rental house offers ample space for socializing. Our Long Dream House, for example, has a large covered patio and an outdoor barbecue.
