Boca Sombrero
Reviewed July 7, 2012

This place is the joy at the end of the universe! They are first-class in terms of serving your needs and being available, while leaving you to your own discoveries of the wilds of the Osa. I hesitate to write this review out of selfishness, because this will be my 7th year in a row coming here and loving every moment of it. The pool is perfect, the surfing is the easiest place for beginners, the chill factor is over the top, the food is sublime.

Beautiful facilities, fabulous (natural/organic) food, deserted beaches, wonderful staff. If you're in the mood for a complete renewal and be at one with nature, look no further!

Room Tip: Homes for rent or elevated/insect-free thatched roof tents. For families, a house would be more comf...
