If you are looking for the true Costa Rica, this is your place. Located in the middle of the primary rain forest, you'll be surrounded by sounds of the jungle, your alarm clock will be the howling monkeys, the singing toucans.. and eventually you'll come across with lots of different species of birds, monkeys, or even bigger ones as the...

I just experienced this place...It's not what, it leads you to believe! Unless, you're a young, wayward, traveler! There is minimal food provided, you are basically "On you own"...No meat, poultry, fish, etc....Also, the owner Osvaldo offers "Team" treks though the jungle, to the beaches, but he'll desert you 3/4 on the way back & >>good luck finding your way...

This oasis is perfect for coming down. Very simple and close to nature. You hear and see the jungle everywhere. There are only a couple of other guests around. Delicious, fresh, organic food, especially the jungle-pizza out of the wood oven! Very nice hosts! It's helpful if you speak spanish...

I stayed here for about 4 full days in Feb 2014. The whole set up is super chill and laid back. Huge recommendation if you are into a more laid back setting; for those travellers looking for more polished operations or a simple jump-off for day tripping and touring corcovado, etc., then I might look in drake bay town itself....

Osvaldo and Daniella's self sutainable farm was an unique, marvelous experience and was much needed! I arrived ill and left regenerated, rejuvenated and glad we stayed the extra night. Our host were majical. They fed me coconut water to elevate my electrolytes and clean my system and herbal tea to soothe. These are all from his farm. I was amaze... More

After traveling throughout most of the country, we felt inundated with tourists from all over. We had heard Casa Pequeña was a unique place and the reviews were good so we booked two nights. We did not know what to expect exactly. We were picked up by Osvaldo in his Taxi-Quad - a 4-wheel ATV with a platform on the... More

We stayed for about four days in summer and the experience was great! More than anything it felt like staying at a friend's house. Besides the regular things one would do while staying in the Osa Peninsula (nature walks, etc.) we got to really meet the locals and enjoy their culture in a way we would have never done by... More

Casa Pequeña is a small osasis within the jungle run by Osvaldo. So that's the right place if you want to feel the jungle with your 5 senses: One night we woke up with the noise of a monkey, apparently, the monkey was just begging for water. The day after, we spotted a big bright blue dot... it was a... More

This beautiful place, tucked away in a corner of primary rainforest south of Drake, is a world unto itself. We stayed for three nights and could not have found better friends in Osvaldo (the owner), his excellent cook (more appropriately a chef considering all of the training he's had), and the other people staying at Casa Pequeña. In the short... More
