If you find an opportunity to visit Guaria, absolutely take it. There aren't enough words to express the beauty that this place holds. From the staff, location, your neighbors, sounds of the rainforest, what is being done here is eternally inspirational and I'm so thankful to have had the experience! Ultimate relaxation, disconnection from the distractions of life, with amazing (emphasis on amazing), nutritious food and beautiful sights to see. Ask Jonathan for hikes you could go on, there are 2 waterfalls on either side of the beach and you can rent kayaks and explore even more of the land!
The little bungalows are fantastic, with beautiful views with the best lullaby available, the sounds of the rainforest. Give yourself the time for renewal, and become inspired and refreshed by your surroundings by the love and beauty of Guaria. I highly recommend this place! Also, ask Jonathan to tell you some stories! He has such wealth of knowledge, and it's especially captivating to hear how Guaria de Osa was built and about the traditions of indigenous cultures.
