The accommodations were perfect, the food was very satisfying and everyone there was joyous . . . need I say more? Spent two weeks here practicing tai chi and music and meeting new friends,... 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...

We were looking for a tropical flora and fauna, low tech/high nature, simple and relaxing retreat... and we found it with Jonathan and staff and Guaria de Osa in Costa Rica! Magical entry by boat down the Sierpe River into the ocean and then walking into the resort after being dropped off the boat at a roadless/carless beach. Just the... More

Guaria De Osa is amazing. if i were to say my favorite part of my trip there it would have to be the whole trip. Even getting to Guaria De Osa is amazing, by air, by water and by road. The accommodations were lovely and I cannot say enough about the staff and volunteers. Everyone was friendly and the food... More

I had very little idea as to what my experience on the Osa would be like. I visited the more populated Nicoya Peninsula one year earlier and enjoyed my time on the beaches and meeting the locals, but found it to be very dangerous in certain areas. I stayed at Guaria for a retreat last winter and met some of... More
