“Family Costa Rican Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

We spent 6 nights at Osa Mountain Village with our children and grandchildren. Three generations of family thoroughly enjoyed their stay. We felt very safe. We participated in a wide range of activities including the waterfall hike, snorkeling, fishing, and zip lining. Many of our afternoons ended by the pool. Duane was extremely helpful with arrangements for the whole 6 days. We would recommend Osa Mountain as a wonderful adventure for the entire family.

This was an organized, well run, and safe zip line experience. The zip lines were great fun, but not quite as thrilling as I hoped. About half the staff was super friendly and encouraging, but a few of them were surly and clearly annoyed with the tourists. Having said that, they were ALL very safe and knew what they were doing.

My boyfriend and I stayed at OSA Mountain Village for 3 nights (1 in the jungle and 2 in a villa) and thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. Honestly, our friends who live in Uvita had suggested it, but we really didn’t know what to expect. It was more of a community than a “resort”. Everyone treated us like family right from the beginning and we felt safe and welcomed. Our concierge, Duane Overturf, was very helpful and accommodating to the many changes we made to our reservation. We took advantage of several tours that they can book for you, including the canopy tour, Mangrove tour and a guided hike into the jungle to spend the night. There is so much to do on your own as well, with the VERY cool butterfly garden being within walking distance and lots of jungle hiking to waterfalls, etc. We had been dropped off by our friend and we didn’t have a car, so once we were on the mountain, we didn’t leave until our shuttle (which happened to be Duane himself (a super treat we didn’t expect) took us to Quepos to catch a flight back to San Jose. One thing to note, the accommodations are nicely appointed with anything you need to cook, etc, but there is no store (yet) on the mountain. So if you don’t have a car or don’t want to make the drive down the mountain, come with some snacks or drinks to keep in your villa between meals. Speaking of meals, we got on the meal plan, because we didn’t have transportation to drive off the mountain. They serve 3 meals a day which were always super fresh and delicious. Dinner is family style where guests and residents can join and you are right at home. If we go back to Costa Rica, we plan on exploring other areas of the country, but will probably book a couple of nights back at OSA Mountain as well, to spend time with the good friends we felt like we made while there.

My husband and I visited Osa to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were interested in the resort due to their sustainability practices and the wildlife. We rented a car in San Jose and had no problem with the drive. The drive along the coast was beautiful!

Our one bedroom villa was awesome. All the amenities of home plus an amazing view! During our stay my husband went zip lining and on the tarzan swing. We spent a lot of time walking, hiking, and checking out the wildlife. My husband being interested in sustainability spent some time with the residents about food production. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. It is evident that the residents of Osa are passionate about the community they are creating.

I highly recommend a stay at Osa Mountain Village!

My daughter and I stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for 4 days this spring. We loved the area and community so much that we purchased a plot of land and will be spending next winter there, planning the rest of my life with Pura Vida. Great people. Great amenities. Wonderful ecological/farming program, leading to food self sufficiency. This is a model for the future. Plus, it is so much fun!!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms seem great. I do prefer the units on the Northern edge of phase 2.

We were attracted to this resort due to the ecosustainability advertised on their website. The villas are beautiful and full of modern conveniences except some do not have air conditioning which we did not need. The setting is on a beautiful mountain side near the OSA peninsula with a lot of rain forest as a backdrop. It is a gated community and one of the safest places we've stayed. We had our 2 younger children and did not worry about them as they ran around during the day. There are trails into the forest to explore and lots of paid tours to keep one busy. Some of the tours are still working out the details as they are new at the tourist scene with the canopy tour zip lining a must. The residents treat you as one of their own and are more than willing to help with anything and include you in all their activities. The restaurant has fantastic food, they grow and raise almost everything there but portions are small and prices a bit on the expensive side. They had a nice bar and a great pool although due to the chemical free nature it was green all the time which worried my kids. We loved being there but would skip the camping in the jungle at night tour (maybe great for those who are never in the outdoors but a little too plush and close to the villas for seasoned campers) and spent more time exploring trails on our own.

Room Tip: We rented the 3 bedroom villa but others said the 1 and 2 room villas were just as nice.
