Recent Osa Peninsula reviews

  • 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."

  • Our Christmas Vacation

    "My husband and I enjoyed our six-day stay at the Playa Lapa house. The owners Helene and Joe were very nice and helpful. We bought groceries in Puerto Jimenez for our entire stay and cooked the fish my husband caught to add protein to our meals. (Once for arriving and once for leaving was enough to travel the unpaved road from Puerto Jimenez to/from Carate.) We had visited the remote Osa Peninsula once before. (My husband is an avid birder.) We stayed in a luxury lodge near the northern border of Corcovado National Park. On this trip we found that we prefer having our own house. The Playa Lapa house was the best choice for us. Kayaking, fishing, hiking, and the pre-planned tours were all great."

  • wonderful jungle getaway!

    "We spent two week's in Michelle's beautiful house and really enjoyed it. We loved the gardens, the terraces, the great kitchen, the huge upstairs bedroom, the outdoor showers, and the overall Spanish feel of the house. The almost daily titi monkey visits to the banana trees really added to the experience! The beach was a minute away and it was lovely to swim in the "infinity" river pool overlooking the gulf. Melanie and Kim were kind, helpful, and fun hosts and we felt very taken care of during our stay. Thank you also to Maru for her great housekeeping. We will be back!"

  • Beautiful spot with wonderful assistance by owners

    "We wanted to spend time in CR with our young adult children + their friends. Casa Bambu is a gorgeous location. Lyn advised us on various itinerary choices, and took care of the booking contacts, a service which was in itself worth the price of our lodging. In December, some days were humid, but it was surprisingly tolerable. Casa Linda is beautiful, clean, and well-equipped. Kirk, who happened to be there during our stay, made sure that we got what we needed, from pizza pans to extra clothespins. Macaws regularly snacked in the almond trees. Toucans, togons, hummingbirds, vultures, spider monkeys, squirrel monkeys, capuchins and agoutis made frequent appearances. And those amazing leafcutter ants! Pelicans entertained us at the beach as they dove to fish in synchronized groups of three. The calls of the howler monkeys provided the soundtrack to our stay. William, the caretaker, is a love. He opened coconuts, found us a massage therapist, and he and Kirk even ferried the guys out in a catamaran to meet their deep sea fishing boat. He is also a very knowledgeable nature guide who was patient with us "less-than-in-shape" hikers. We had Leda and Oliva prepare a meal for us. I showed them what we had, and 75 minutes later, they served up a great fish dish with salad and a potato, broccoli and onion medley. Caveat. Others have mentioned that the road from Puerto Jiménez is rough. This is no exaggeration. Anyone arriving from PJ should try to arrive before dark on that first trip. The potholes, rocks, narrow bridges and rivers can be negotiated, but doing it for the first time at night is stressful. Tours? Our outings included a Gulf dolphin tour combined with a visit to Santuario Silvestre. This was a highlight of the trip. We also did the delightful zip-line canopy tour with Eduardo. I would have liked to stop on the way back to visit Finca Kobo, a cocoa plantation on the route, but I also recommend taking Lyn’s advice to not book too many "outings." William can lead you on hikes to waterfalls and birding walks from the property; kayaking and swimming in the gulf is very pleasant. We ate several delicious meals at Martina’s, an easy walk from the house. So much to see and do right in the area, but it's also just a great place to "be.""
