First of all, if you are a nature lover, the Osa Peninsula needs to be at the very top of your bucket list! This tiny corner of Costa Rica is home to an amazing amount of the world's biodiversity. It is a small part of our planet that remains virtually unspoiled by humans, and the occupants of the region (including the folks at El Remanso) have been extraordinarily successful in keeping it that way. The lodge itself is a series of cabins spread out across an enormous property that also includes miles and miles of hiking trails with beautiful waterfalls, a deserted beach, tide pools, a lagoon, and much much more. The accommodations are open-air luxury cabins with terrific food and excellent service. When we were in our cabin (La Vanilla), we felt like we were the only people on the entire property. The staff is absolutely first-rate and includes three ecologists/guides who are extraordinarily knowledgeable. We took advantage of the wildlife explorer package which included a long hike, a short hike, a night hike, a canopy observation breakfast, a bird watching tour, and a dolphin watching tour. Every one of them was outstanding and worth doing. This is by no means a zoo... you are literally in the middle of the rainforest, and nature is totally unpredictable. So, what you see is what you see. However, in our time there we saw four different kinds of monkeys, dozens of species of birds, a cayman, a fer-de-lance, and even a boa in the process of eating a coati. We spent 5 nights there which felt just about right for us.
