After being greeted by a welcoming smile from the proprietor, it's hard not to be in awe at your surroundings. The house is magnificent, all native hard wood and custom cement forming the shower and dual sinks. After settling in, it's a walk through a private rainforest trail to a virtually private beach. I've been going to Costa Rica for almost 40 years, and the osa for over 20 and this is by FAR my favorite place to stay. Already thinking about another trip!
