Throughout Costa Rica you will hear the hype. Those who have ventured to this area, often leave tight lipped about the experience. Ensuring the region maintains its natural beauty. Most of the coastline is a protected area where surfing is prohibited so you have to know the right place to look.

The drive in is an adventure in itself. The first time you see a wave through a break in the rainforest you’ll know you’ve come to the right place. The whole wave rich peninsula is filled with beautiful animals like toucans and macaws flying overhead.  Monkeys and tapirs roam the forest and there is always an opportunity for a wildlife photo.


This lodge is set in a protected forest region, the Osa Peninsula which is protected by national park and private reserves. 

 It is one of the most biologically diverse places in the world and thanks to conservation efforts this area remains home to many endangered species.
