I had been to the Osa on a few different trips before discovering Guaria de Osa. I must say that Guaria is the most beautiful lodge I have been to. The location is supreme..the jungle is rich with wildlife (beautiful birds, monkeys, butterflys, tapirs and their beautiful pet scarlet macaw named Anna). The ocean is beautiful for swimming and when the tide is right makes for some really great surfing. Guaria is located a short boat ride from Cano Island which has some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling I have ever done. The Island is a marine preserve and located at the edge of a deep ocean channel so unlike reef diving you have the opportunity to experience many other diverse species of deep water wildlife. Corcovado National Park is very close..last time I was there we saw Jaguar footprints! No Jaguar but maybe next time. The lodging is clean and comfortable with a super friendly and informative staff. The food is great! They try to incorporate local cuisine such as fish and jungle fruits and juices. I cant tell you enough how amazing real fresh mango juice tastes! I'd go back just for that alone!! One of the best things is hanging out in the Lapa Lapa lodge. The lodge is 3 floors with areas for relaxing in a hammock, an upper floor for yoga with beautiful local reclaimed hardwood floors, and the top floor for getting massages or meditating. You must watch the sunset for the top floor! I will have been back to Guaria 3 times now and will return again on my nest trip to Costa Rica
