Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley purchased this House in 2013
Why Jarrod Guidry and Meaghan Foley chose Los Pargos
We just remodeled Mango Tango after buying it a few years ago. The new larger floor plan is great for our family and hopefully yours too. We enjoyed making our Playa Negra getaway home larger and more comfortable. Adding our own touch to this already great home. We hope you think so too.

Perfect for our 1st visit to Costa Rica
The property was just as described. The check in and out process very easy and easy to communicate with the owners. They cleaned the pool frequently while we were there as well as the patio area. The kitchen is beautiful, everything you could possibly need! All beds were comfortable and everything in working order. We saw monkeys nearly every day we were there, so awesome! You definitely get to experience the jungle here. We loved the short drive to the open air bar. Tamarindo was not as far a drive as it seems on navigation and that is where we got groceries. The community around the house is very friendly and welcoming, we checked out a local soccer game while at the pizzeria one night. We would definitely recommend staying here! Great for families with teenagers or older kids.
It’s a little rough getting out there, but when you do it’s a small piece of paradise. The house has all the modern day necessities you could want to make yourself comfortable. I would say that you would have to drive to the beach, not really walking distance.
Awesome awesome awesome
So much good stuff, I don't even know where to start.
I spent a week at Casa Mango Tango with my wife and our two daughters (ages 8 and 10). The place was perfect for us. Sweet little house with a perfect little pool for cooling off.
The first morning we woke up to a couple of howler monkeys climbing through the trees just outside our balcony. Very cool. The girls had never seen anything like that in the wild before. There are also iguanas and ctenosaurs (bigger, grayish iguana-like lizards) that visit the ground-floor porch when you're eating looking for handouts. We fed them pieces of apple. (Just don't try to hand-feed them. I made that mistake and got bitten. Can't blame the lizard for that.) Tons of cool birds around the house too.
Jarrod and Meaghan were awesome. Very approachable and happy to help us whenever we needed it. They helped us arrange ziplining and horseback riding. They also hooked us up with Adobe Car Rental, which I would recommend. Got a good 4x4 from them. Used it for trips to the stores/restaurants in "town", Hotel Playa Negra and nearby Playa Avellanas.
The nearby snorkeling tide pool was super cool too. Perfect for young ones.
Bottom line: We can't wait to go back. (Hopefully for longer next time!)
Perfect relaxing getaway
My boyfriend and I spent a week at Casa Mango Tango in Jan 2016 to celebrate his birthday. It was exactly what we were looking for - far from the maddening crowds, close to the beach but a private haven at the end of the cul-de-sac, a wonderfully appointed house, our own pool for laps or just reading a book in the shallow end, and lots of daily entertainment watching the local wildlife. Yes, in addition to the iguanas and monkeys (we were disappointed to only hear them!), and birds and racoon, we did see a small crocodile on the far banks of the river behind the house!! We did take a few day trips during our week away, but what we loved best was our morning walks along the nearby beach, reading by the pool, and checking out the local restaurants nearby - sunset at Lola's in Avellanas beach and dinner at Villa Daveena are not to be missed! And Jen at the local Cafe La Ventana brought an excellent catered birthday meal to the house for our first night there - it was hard to top! Stephanie, the owner, was easy and accommodating to work with, and Jarrod and Meaghan were the perfect Playa Negra manager/hosts - they were full of great local info, accessible for any of our needs, and just great people! We are already trying to figure out when we can return.
A memorable vacation for our family
Our visit to Mango Tango was extraordinary. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest rating, our family would rate our trip to Playa Negra as a ten in each of the categories of service, accomodations, location and overall experience. Mango Tango was perfect. We are so grateful for the thoughtful and helpful assistance provided to us by Jarrod and Mariah. Thank you for the opportunity to stay at Mango Tango. We look forward to our next visit.
