I stayed for 14 nights at Casa Troya within Boca Sombrero, built with an open concept design allowing me to enjoy nature at it's fullest while being protected from the natural elements. The front deck of the house is about 15 to 20 feet from the beautiful, powerful Pacific Ocean and during high tide displaying ferocious waves similar to Cabo... More

My wife and I went to Boca Sombrero on a surf and yoga vacation and we totally enjoyed ourselves! Monica, who runs the resort, works exceptionally hard to make sure each guest has an amazing experience. The food was exceptional and the chefs prepare dishes with fresh ingredients and can meet everyone's dietary needs. The property is located on the... More

My second trip to Boca Sombrero was as fantastic as the first! If you want to truly enjoy the Osa Peninsula Pura Vida-style, this is the place. Their location right on the beach, delicious freshly-prepared food, comfy houses and cabinas, sweet surfing and overall good vibes make for a priceless experience. Muchas Gracias to Monika, Lily, Sylvia and all our... More

We rented a house in the property for 5 days after trekking around other parts of the country. This was a great way to end the trip because we had a beautiful property, house, and beach practically to ourselves. Monika is very accessible and she makes sure you have everything you need. We were offered the option to have breakfast... More

Boca Sombrero is managed by a wonderful woman named Monica who was warm, very welcoming and very professional. Monica bent over backwards to make our stay beautiful and memorable, a excellent host indeed! There are a few high-end and expensive Eco-Resorts in the Osa and I have stayed in two of them. Previous to checking into this home, I stayed... More

This retreat was very beautiful. It is a lot like camping. Everything is open and you sleep under mosquito nets. The shower is outside and public. The beaches are not white sandy beaches. They have a lot of pebbles and rocks. There are also a lot of crabs everywhere. I really enjoyed my stay here, "camping along the beach". There... More

I've been to Boca twice -- once with a group of friends, and just recently, with my girlfriend. I'm not the type to return to the same spot over and over but this place is just too perfect: sun, surf, wild jungle action, monkeys, and nary another person around. What makes this place so special is that it is spread... More

The people and property at Boca are truly on top of their game. They know how to make sure everything is as you need it. Walter, Monika, Grace and the others made our stay truly memorable. The house was very clean and had all we needed. The internet rocked which is unusual for this area considering the remoteness. The pool... More
