We went to the Osa for the wildlife and we were not disappointed. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful birds and the guided trips you take with Carlos will allow you to put names to what you see and allow you to see what you are missing that is plainly there, whether looking for birds or nightlife. Carlos is an excellent naturalist. After many years of guiding, he will be just as excited as you to see an anteater, a Toucan our a pair of squawking scarlet macaws. The guides provided; for the Cano snorkleing trip and the Corcavodo trip were also excellent.
Pros: Everything. The beautiful rooms and gardens; the excellent staff; the free kayaks; the good food and the location on a river.
Cons: A greater variety of snacks from day to day during the evening happy hour. The food was delicious but if you stay 5 days, there could be more choices.
Location: Located at the mouth of a river, you can take a free kayak and explore the river or Drakes Bay on your own. All of the Osa tours can be booked.
