Recent Osa Peninsula reviews

  • 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."

  • The Best Place Ever!

    "We absolutely loved everything about Casa Dos Rios! The house is amazing and exactly what we wanted with our rainforest experience. It is VERY comfortable while taking full advantage of the amazing location. We could not have had more fun just hanging around the property - playing on the beach, resting in the hammocks, hiking to the waterfalls and watching all of the amazing wildlife right from our house! Additionally, We loved going to the Osa Wildlife Sanctuary - an incredible place doing important work. And, we HIGHLY recommend the sailing tour with the owners of Casa Dos Rios, Kim and Melanie. We had the BEST time with them out on the water. In fact, they were so wonderful with every part of this vacation. In a nutshell, they are just REALLY nice people who go out of their way to make your stay wonderful! We would have loved Casa Dos Rios in any case, but the fact that Kim and Melanie are so nice really made our stay extra special! I would not change one thing about this special place - we hope to be back!"

  • Best Place in Matapalo

    "My husband, friends and family have stayed at this property over New Years for the past 5 years. We have spent extensive time in Costa Rica, and the Cabo Matapalo area. This is by far the best property in the area in terms of locations, convenience, finishing, and service. Isaac and Desiree (the on-site property managers) are lovely, and generous. The house is exactly as the photos depict. Pure paradise. Highly recommend staying here."

  • 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.""
