Absolutely incredible trip. My mom and I stayed for 10 days and had a wonderful time. We stayed in the tiki tent for one night, went on the 3-day hike to Corcovado Park (with Erick, who is an incredible guide and person) and then spent the remainder of our time in the Bamboo Cabana. We spent some time on the... More

Spent 11 days at finca and almost don't wont to write this review to reassure there will be space when I come back because once you experience this place you will not want to leave.

Upon first arrival we were just blown away by the grounds and maintenance of the lodge. Granted we had quite an exciting and eventful ride on the colectivo from Puerto Jimenez, we were not prepared for what this place had in store for us. The facilities were magnificent - namely Casa Grande, what a work of art. Beautiful wood detailing,... More

This experience was simply magical for my two children and I. The minute we arrived, our lives were transformed. The no electronics policy was the beginig of a truly interactive lifestyle, jajaja. There was simply so much to experience in these surroundings, that my kids quickly forgot computer games and I forgot about work. It was the perfect excuse to... More

Thanks for your review, Nena! Your words are very inspiring, almost as great as your beautiful singing voice which we felt privileged to hear the night you came to Casa Grande with your guitar for a mini concert! It was wonderful to have your family here and we really hope you all get to come back again soon- Pura vida! More

My wife and I travel a lot, and this was absolutely the best experience we've ever had. We spent 6 nights in one of the small cabinas and totally loved it. Be prepared--this experience is not for everybody. The cabins basically have no walls (just mosquito netting over the bed), and the birds and howler monkeys will wake you at... More

Awesome! In the middle of the jungle and 2 min far from a beautiful beach! The architecture, rooms etc... are fantastic and in harmony with the nature.

Staying here was the BEST way to end our trip in Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula lived up to the hype - it's absolutely beautiful, and still largely untouched. The hotel itself is incredible, from the gardens to the lounge areas to the cabinas themselves. The staff make you feel like you are right home and go out of their... More
