Recent Osa Peninsula reviews

  • Casa Arenosa, amazing tropical escape

    "We stayed at Casa Arenosa in April and had an amazing time! The house is so beautiful. We enjoyed the large open kitchen for cooking meals, making smoothies and hanging out in. There are so many seating areas throughout the house, including hammocks, so it’s easy to find a place to relax or socialize. There is also a plunge pool, which was perfect for cooling off during the heat. The beach is just a few steps from the house through some almond tress. The water was beautiful and we saw so many scarlet macaws in the trees! It was great to come out and watch the sunrise at the beach as well. Mornings were also good for seeing all the wildlife that’s around. There were toucans, and tons of monkeys in the trees just outside the house! The caretaker Mike is great. He even made us a delicious dinner one night with fresh fish he had caught himself that day. The sheets and towels were changed every few days, which was very nice as well. The place is perfect for anyone looking for an incredible tropical escape, whether it’s just a couple or a large group of friends. I would highly recommend it to anyone."

  • Paradise Found at Sierpe Del Pacifico

    "My family of five had the adventure of a life time at Sierpe del Pacifico (our three children range in ages from 8-17). The jungle home is stunning, clean and placed right in the middle of the jungle--toucans, parrots, capuchin and howler monkeys are neighbours. We loved the solitude and natural splendour of the property. Paradise is simply sitting on the porch, overlooking the jungle and the Sierpe River, watching scarlet macaws fly by. We took boat trips to Corcovado Park, Cano Island, Violin Island and went horseback riding with Rosita (which was so much fun)! Caesar was a top notch guide in Corcovado--very informative and he tracked a tapir for us. Felipe was a friendly, kind and knowledgeable driver on our way to and from San Jose. In fact, everyone we dealt with regarding our vacation was friendly, knowledgable and eager to help. The experience best suits those who enjoy nature and wilderness, don't mind hot and humid weather and can handle a 5-10 minute up hill climb to the house from the dock. Make sure to stock up on groceries well before Sierpe as we found the town grocery store lacking. Being submersed in the true jungle, I learned more on the Oso Peninsula about life than in my 8 years of university. I've been home for a while; yet, I still miss the howler monkeys and their morning calls. Thank you Cassidy, it was the most amazing vacation and I'd love to return."

  • Magical experience in the OSA with our kids

    "We had the most magical week at Casa Dos Rios. The wildlife was abundant (we saw sloths, all four types of monkeys, scarlet macaws, iguanas, lizards, frogs, a huge variety of birds) without even having to leave the yard. The house is very comfortable and the solar power and well water worked perfectly. Our kids (6, 8, and 9) all enjoyed exploring the nearby rivers and waterfalls, hunting for crabs and fish in the tide pools, and swimming in the water. All the people we met were incredibly friendly and helpful. Activities we greatly enjoyed included a waterfall hike with a local biologist, a whale watching trip (in which we saw humpback whales and dolphins), and snorkeling. The kids also took surf lessons with "Pollo" who lives next door and they LOVED it. It does take a day or two to get used to the place, because it is humid and we initially worried about safety for the kids. By day two though, our kids were roaming free, exploring the grounds, swimming in the ocean, talking with local kids they met, and having the time of their lives. Insects were never a problem, although we didn't have as much wind as we would have hoped, so it was hot! Definitely recommend the food at Martina's which is a 3 minute walk from the house (although the staff there weren't the friendliest). We would have stayed another week (or 2, or 3, or 4...) if we could have, and would definitely come back to this area and to this house. Owners were very easy to work with, provided lots of great information, and used a local manager who was very helpful as well. Thanks for an unbelievable week of adventures and getting back to what really matters! Pura Vida!"

  • Sierpe del Pacifico Adventure

    "We recently returned from our second visit to Sierpe del Pacifico. We had an excellent time at SDP. Our accomodations in the River Cabin we quite comfortable. We ate most all our meals there but made a few visits to the Village. The SDP experience is perfect for anyone that enjoys exploring the beauty of Costa Rica. While we were visiting we enjoyed both a guided river fishing trip for snook, snapper & corvina & a fantastic day on the Pacific. We ate fish almost eveyday! We had another great day riding horses & visiting with Rosie & her family on a real Tico farm. Visiting with Rosie & her family was a great way for us to work on our Spanish too. We took daily walks on the miles of well maintained trails, taking pictures & video of the plants & animals. On this visit we saw all four species of monkeys that are native to CR. We enjoyed fresh fruits from the garden daily. If you snorkel or dive, a day trip to Isla Cano is highly recommended. The SDP staff were there to help with just a call on the cell phone provided. So much to do. We had a blast. We recommend grocery shopping in Pal Mar on your way to Sierpe for best selection. Be sure to read the info provided. It's full of important points to have a safe & enjoyable experience."
