So thankful to Life, allowing another purely beautiful life experience at Guaria. I had the chance visit this Ecolodge 5 years ago, when I began my explorations as a costarrican Nature Guide and fell in love with the positive vibe of this place. A couple of weeks ago when I knew a friend of mine was coming for the first... More

Group retreat at Guaria de Osa this January, what a magical way to start the year! All around vibrant beauty. Everything tended to with extreme care, the garden, the beach, the outdoor dining tables, the meals, the spacious airy rooms, the majestic yoga space, the stunning massage/healing room. With options to do, swimming, snorkeling, touring the rainforest, canoeing, horseback riding,... More

I've been to Guaira de Osa (meaning Orchid of the Osa) twice now and it's such a magical place! I can't recommend it enough. What a place to recharge and unplug from the world! Guaria is a very remote eco-lodge and is so perfect for an escape. It's always nice to reset your circadian rhythm to the sunrises and sunsets.... More

The owner/operator Jonathon is a gracious host and a real character. He has built a really cool eco-lodge here, so don't expect a five star "resort". Getting to and from Guaria de Osa is worth the trip alone, and the staff makes this part painless. The grounds of Guaria are simply beautiful. Our room was clean and had a private... More

I just returned from my second year in a row at Guaria De Osa.. This place is absolutely magical as if out of a dream. Eating breakfast outdoors with white face monkeys filling the surrounding trees. Watching the sunset into the ocean on a near private beach. The staff are friendly and accommodating in every way. This is an eco-lodge,... More

Guaria de Osa is such a unique and awe-inspiring experiencing for children and the whole family! Children have the opportunity to be in a safe, loving community with so many things to do. Everything from learning about rainforest/ocean conservation, surfing and snorkeling a short distance away, and beautiful walks along jungle paths. It is a little of the beaten path... More

A marvelous place in Corcovado. A little bit expensive, but nevertheless, wonderful! It has monkeys, who throw coconut for free ;-), snakes (just kidding), dogs (which love to go to the beach with you but are not willing to go alone ;-)), marvelous beach in front, great for surfing (the place has surf and bodyboard equipment for free (I think...

My sister and I spent 5 nights at this beautiful Eco Lodge at the end March of 2014. If you are looking for an experience that you will never forget, this is the place. The whole trip, beginning with our planning through Dahlia, was great. The flight to Drake Bay on Nature Air, as well as the drive and boat... More

If you want to unplug yourself from the craziness of city life, if you want to surround yourself with the endless beauty of nature, if you want to wake up to an orchestra of birds and fall asleep to the rhythmic sound of crashing waves, if you want to smell the sweet humid air of the Osa Penninsula and escape...
