villa mango / Jo & agnes 


Agnes born in Auvergne,France and Jo born in Penamacor, Portugal were fortunate to meet in 1988 while working for Club Med in Egypt. Jo as a pastry chef and Agnes as a hotel concierge.  After working for 2 years the couple decided to make their way to the United States where Jo was offered a job as a pastry chef in Key West, Florida.

They obtained their green card and continued on for 12 years in the United States.

The two worked together primarily in Aspen, Colorado as a pastry chef and talented carpenter for Jo and in many facets of the hotel industry at the St. Regis for Agnes.

In 2003 the couple decided to take their experience on the road via motorcycle to find their next destination together. They traveled from Nevada to Mexico and Central America, and landed in Costa Rica.

When a unique opportunity presented itself for Agnes and Jo to build their own bed and breakfast they decided to ground their travels and create a home for themselves in beautiful Nosara, Costa Rica.

The design, structure, and style of Villa Mango are crafted by the couple and built with a lot of hard work to bring to you a home away from home. A place where you can feel relaxed, warm, and welcome.

Agnes and Jo have been hosting guests for 15 years in this successful bed and breakfast. Understanding the volume and need for destination events brought them to the decision to create packages for all occasions and to make it very easy for couples, groups, families, and corporations to enjoy paradise on earth, packages made simple and tailored to your needs.

Thank you for considering Villa Mango for your private function. You are in the best hands with this couple taking care of everything so all you have to do is come.
