I can’t believe that it’s taken me so long to write this review - mostly I think it’s because I wanted to do justice to this special spot. It’s good that the Osa penninsula is difficult to get to, as it remains fairly unspoiled. It’s special there, and the wildlife is everywhere. When you fly into Puerto Jimenez on the... More

Didn't know what to expect when we finally pulled up to LagunaVista Villas after a 4.5 drive from Playa Uvita. We had our own car, a 4x4 vehicle, which was absolutely needed. Lucky for us they had just repaired the one and only road to get here, but it is still a dirt road, very rough, for about 70 minutes,... More

We spent 16 days in Costa Rica. We finished out our trip at Lagunavista Villas and couldn't have made a better choice. The grounds are beautiful, set on a hill side overlooking a lagoon and the Pacific ocean. Out on the Osa Peninsula this place is the definition of secluded and perfect for newlyweds looking for an escape from the... More

From the moment you drive up the beautiful hibiscus lined path to the eco-friendly Laguna Vista Villas, you know you’ve arrived. We could actually feel the stress of everyday life being replaced by a delightful forced relaxation! If you love astounding natural beauty, abundant nature, and your travelling companion (or companions) Laguna Vista Villas is a dream come true. Each... More

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
