if you are looking for a place to get away from everything but not put yourself through an overly rustic experience that borders on extreme effort, go down to visit lyn and kirk's swiss family robinson styled houses at the southern tip of the osa peninsula. they will help you plan a perfect trip from travel advice to logistical assistance. the houses are all gorgeous and hand made by kirk and william the caretaker. each has its own special character. we stayed in la pina, which has a lovely framed view of the ocean (which less than a 5 minute stroll down a path), avocado and banana trees ripe for your picking, and the titular pineapple plants in a broad lawn behind the house. listen to the sounds of the night insects, the roar of the howler monkey, the crashing of the waves, and wind in the trees, you will never find anything else like it. truly a perfect get-away.
thanks kirk and lyn!
