Search no further! Beautiful jungle experience, affordable half-houses w kitchen, farm, hikingtrails, zipline, pool, bar. Gorgeous pool area, Ricardo's delicious food, the fun tiki bar, the amazing diversity of food plants, chickens, goats, ducks. Hiking trails galore with a gorgeous private waterfall. Serenity and a real jungle experience await. The units are brand new, beautifully finished. We were able to buy our week's groceries of fresh fresh fruits and vegetables, some beans for around $80 and supplement with Osa's eggs, tomatoes and other surplus veg and fruit they offer/sell. It was wonderful to shop like a local and eat like a king. After hiking, we'd read by the pool. Their friend Cliff owns a place restaurant and small motel just down the mountain on the most pristine beautiful beach imaginable. You can park here securely, and he'll set you up with a cooler of beers and you can swim in the 86 degree water, rest along the jungley shore (no development along the beach). Watch for howler monkeys on the trail back to the restaurant before you drive up the graded mountain road to your cozy base at Osa Mountain Village. This community is happening and we were jealous to here of the stories of people who are making it happen, relocating here, their children learning Spanish in a term at the local school, setting up entrepreneurial businesses within the community. Everyone is super friendly and will strive 100% to make you feel at home. Lots of bird life, we saw a toucan and other wonderful sights. Stay 5 nights to a week, you won't regret it!
