“Renewal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

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.

What a beautiful and amazing place. Instant access to the beach, jungle, rivers, waterfalls, islands, and more. The staff there are so kind, caring, energetic, and full of great ideas and information. I had such a special time during my retreat there. The good vibes there are amazing, and they draw in special people from all walks of life. I will definitely be back. I can't recommend Guaria de Osa highly enough. I feel lucky to have discovered such a wonderful place, and you'll thank yourself if you decide to make the journey there.

This place is literally paradise. Nothing better than staying next to the ocean and the rainforest... and just a hike away to a refreshing river and waterfalls. The food was delish and the service was awesome. There's so much more I could say but I think you should discover it for yourself. I will definitely be back.

The most beautiful environment, the healthiest food, and the best hospitality for rejuvenating mind, body, and spirit. A special energy is felt and connects you with nature, by hikes in the rainforest, swimming in the waters, cleanse by the waterfalls. Learn about the plants and their medicinal properties as well as for cooking. The wildlife is spectacular to view, especially the birds. It is a place to disconnect for awhile, for centering, and refocusing on what's important. A total get-a-way for revitalization!

I returned to Guaria De Osa Ecolodge for the second time In Jan 2013. Again, it was a healthy retreat that renewed my soul and invigorated my spirit. The staff are outstanding and a lot of fun, they work so hard to maintain such fresh amenities in such an isolated place, a hard task to say the least. The food was beautifully prepared and as fresh as can be. My body rejuvenated back to a healthy vibration in which I consciously manage when I return home. I will surely return again next year! Time stands still at Guaria De Osa Ecolodge.

This is one of the most magical places I have been in my life. The positive energy just takes over the moment you arrive. The sheer beauty of the location and the lodges are overwhelming. Together with a beatiful and commited staff, this journey was one I'll never forget.

I would like to thank the staff for a truly amazing time. The setting and guidance provided by the staff is unparalelled. You are are immersed in a natural setting with a natural diet that helps one to come closer to our natural essence. If these are you intentions this is the place for you. Many blessings and respect to Jonathon and his constituents.
