Quality time together, in Costa Rica!


Family Gatherings, Big birthdays, Reunions...

Whether you want to gather with your family of origin or your chosen family, Congo-Bongo is well-equipped to ensure an enjoyable time for everyone. Our location in Manzanillo is also an ideal from which to embark on outings for your clan, whether for meals, wildlife viewing, swimming, snorkelling, and surfing, fishing, or whatever your family desires. Congo-Bongo is a unique, relaxing, and enjoyable tropical base for your family (guilt free and with a strong focus on sustainability). A family or friends vacation is a great way to spend more time with each other while having a great time.

We at Congo-Bongo understand that you want a unique family or friends retreat different from other vacations you may have enjoyed in the past. We offer all the fun, adventure, and comfort that families want most, elevating the experience to world-class standards.


Self-contained vacation homes in a secluded environment

Our discrete houses are close enough to make it easy to gather, but not so close as to feel like you'll be constantly in each others' hair. This makes for an ideal setting for group holidays. Each of our houses has kitchen facilities and barbecues if participants wish to prepare their own meals, or Congo-Bongo is able to arrange for catered Caribbean-style meals for your group (breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner; vegetarian is an option) on request. Please inquire about costs for this service. Congo-Bongo is able to accommodate family groups of up to 40 people.


Where the beaches meet the rainforest

Manzanillo is Costa Rica’s most famous National Park and a great destination for those families and friends looking to experience both the ocean and the rainforest. White water rafting, canopy tours, ocean kayaking, mangrove and dolphin tours, night walks and hikes are just a few of the many outdoor activities offered in the area. Congo-Bongo provides stunning, luxurious, and truly sustainable house rentals in the middle of it all, located right on the beach in Manzanillo. Congo-Bongo is the perfect place to enjoy a few days of adventure and fun. Congo-Bongo offers you the exceptional opportunity to take part in our vision for a more sustainable future, supporting local communities and the natural environment of Costa Rica, in a relaxing and truly memorable setting.

What they're saying about Congo-Bongo

"We had a family vacation at the Long Dream House. We had our whole family so we needed more beds and rented the Sweet Dream House too. We had all our family time at the Long Dream House which is big enough for a very large group with multiple hammocks, patio chairs and comfy rocking chairs. We all had such a wonderful time. This wasn’t our first time at Congo Bongo and it won’t be our last. Great service also." --- kjor, Tennessee (TripAdvisor)
