We stayed at Guaria for about a week during spring break. If you like isolation and quiet, this is the place. The food was absolutely excellent, and the hospitality by the staff was great. Our cabin was very spacious and clean. We saw tons of birds, lizards and primates right at Guaria. While we planned several trips in the area...

The place is very well located, close to the beach and Corcovado national Park, therefore nature will always be present around the hotel, monkeys, toucans, parrots, and pizotes just to mention some of the creatures that approach to the place. I totally recommend this place to those who really want to be in nature in one of the wildest places...

My husband and I actually run our own little eco boutique retreat in Dominical, but were looking to unplug and go deep into the jungle for our anniversary. Guaria de Osa really gave us just what we were looking for! We stayed in one of the cabinas with a hammock on the deck overlooking the trees and ocean... the monkeys...

I already cant wait to return to Guaria. In addition to everything else I loved about being there, the staff are now like family. It's a new home away from home. Walks along the beach, hiking, snorkeling, surfing, and daily morning yoga.

Beautiful ocean side cabin to myself. The waves were beautifully audible and the breeze refreshing. Every night I could enjoy the sunset from my porch hammock. Bed was comfy and mosquito net included. The meals were amazing and made with love. Everyone at the Ecolodge is highly evolved, loving, and welcoming. The energy of the place is off the charts...

I have just got back from a stay with Jonathan and his team at Guaria De Osa and wow what an experience. Firstly the location is out of this world.
