We had a pleasant stay at Jinetes de Osa. The room was comfortable. The sound of the waves down below was so loud that we needed ear plugs which we used throughout our trip in Costa Rica because it gets loud at night with all the wildlife around. There is no swimming off the beach there; not that you would want to if you are doing excursions that Jinetes de Osa are very skilled at doing. They have a large catamaran that is comfortable on several hour long trips in the open waters. One nuance we did not enjoy was the sounds of a drum beating at the local school. Jinetes is located very close to town and you could hear the drum very well. The children were practicing for the national holiday of Costa Rica, which is a beautiful thing. However, since we were on vacation to enjoy peace and quiet the noise was pretty annoying as it was repetitive and you could not escape from it.
Jinetes de Osa is located on the road that on one side has a steep hill and on the other side the bay. The only walking you can do is along that road. The food was just ok like everywhere else in Costa Rica with the exception of a few places where we thought the food was delicious. On the way back we were transferred to the airstrip in an old pick up truck and the door was so heavy and hard to manipulate especially on the uneven road that I accidentally crushed my foot with it, so badly that I had to be in a wheelchair for the next 3 days. Needless to say I couldn't hike anywhere. I think Jinetes de Osa should provide better transportation to its guests to the air strip, especially when the guests are paying top dollar for it. Also, the place was so boring that we were glad to continue to our next destination.
