Arrived from San Jose to torrential rain, crossed four rivers from Puerto Jimenez to Laguna Vista. Next morning bright sunshine and for the whole week we were there. The villas are very spacious, comfortable, clean and the plunge pool was a welcome treat after each trek. We did a hike in Corcovado NP, which was great, but in reality there... More

What an amazing place. We had seven nights here and it was fantastic. Saw three species of monkeys (Spider, Squirrel & Capuchin), Toucans, Scarlet Macaws, Vultures, Hawks and a variety of lizards just from the plunge pool on our deck, while taking in the amazing breathtaking views of the lagoon and ocean. The hardest thing was getting used to the... More

I stayed at Laguna Vista Villas with my wife and four year old daughter for a week in February 2015. It was truly an incredible experience. Matt, the on site manager, was a superb host. He was a great resource even prior to our arrival and was extremely helpful in planning tours and activities for us during our stay. My... More

Although there is over a foot of snow outside, I am still glowing from my vacation at Laguna Vista Villas, Carate, on Costa Rica’s Osa peninsula. A ninety minute taxi ride on a rough road from Puerto Jimenez brought us to this gem. If you are reading this, you have probably seen the lodge’s posted pictures. They set high expectations... More

We loved everything about LagunaVista Villas! Our family (which included children ages 9, 7 and 3) had a blast here! The views are incredible - better than we could have ever imagined. The villas are wonderful! Our deck included a hammock and dip pool with a great view. The infinity pool is unbelievable with great views of the ocean. The... More

This was my first trip to Costa Rica. My impression was that I would have to "rough" it, especially because I'd be dealing with outside bathroom facilities. Well if this is roughing it, sign me up! This place is beautiful with amazing views, beautiful rooms, some with plunge pools, and while the bathroom is outside, it's quite deluxe. I'm a... More

I’m going to be honest in this review. And it’s a long one because when I’m reading reviews, I like to get as much information as possible about a place before I decide to go there. Laguna Vista—like most things in life-- is not perfect, but the good things about this place were so good that we were won over.... More

This was the best place we stayed in Costa Rica. It was well worth the 40 km gravel road to get there. We forded 4 streams and drove through the dry riverbed of the Oro River, named for the gold that is still in the area. We drove past farms and ranches and jungle to get there. The villas were...

I almost hesitate to write this as I want to come back and have it just the way it is ....uncrowded and unspoiled. My daughter and I spent 2 nights here over the Christmas Holidays and we wish we had spent a few more. We have traveled to Africa, Asia, Bermuda, Europe and the Caribbean over the years and this...

I agree with all of the 5 start reviews. We loved Laguna Vista for the amazing views, wildlife, lovely villas, challenging adventures, Matt the manager and Santos the chef. Santos speaks no English, and we speak no Spanish, but somehow he read our minds about what we wanted to eat and drink for every meal. His meals were delicious, varied,... More
