Costa Rica is a magical place by itself; but Guaria's staff, food, cozy rooms/ cabins made it really special. I was there as part of a ten day group retreat and had amazing experience learning and getting to know folks from all over the world. Great care was taken to cater to the guests for dietary and accommodation needs. The wildlife on the grounds and close ocean beach was amazing. You can even take part in the daily early morning "turtle watch" to save some of the most endangered species from poachers. And one of Costa Rica's greatest National Parks is a few hour's hike down the beach. There are many day trips and tours to explore the Osa Peninsula while you are staying at Guaria. But just hanging out at the beach and in the rainforest is very relaxing and rejuvenating. Definitely recommend this "piece of heaven on earth" to all....
