The Osa Peninsula is just...Wow!

The Osa Peninsula is just...Wow!
Happy travelers share their experience after joining our Into the Wilds of the Osa Peninsula Adventure. As a special birthday celebration we arranged for them to have a surprise lunch by the waterfalls at Lapa Rios which they loved! Who doesn’t appreciate having a trip filled with little surprises and with the opportunity to meet local characters who shared their enthusiasm and passion for their country.  The Osa Peninsula is a great place to pamper yourself amidst the lush tropical rainforest and there's no better scenario that can bring you into a state of relaxation than the soft music of birds chirping from dawn to dusk.  It makes a perfect getaway for girlfriends who want to get away from it all!  Here is what the Brown sisters had to share with us:"Hi Grettel,Wow, thank you! We had an absolutely amazing time in Costa Rica. And everything went very smoothly – Wildland style. We loved...

Is the Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National park for kids? ABSOLUTELY!
Some of our wilder Wildland family travelers want their children to experience the most secluded, pristine and off-the-beaten-path areas of Costa Rica!  This was the case with Katherine and Jeremy, two nature lovers who wanted to show their children (Oscar and Lucia) the magic of the lush tropical forest. They decided their first trip would be to Costa Rica to visit the Osa Peninsula and Manuel Antonio.  Here is what they shared about their:"Hi Grettel,Thanks for helping us plan such a wonderful trip! It truly exceeded all our expectations. In particular, I am so thankful that you encouraged us to visit the Osa and La Paloma Lodge at Drake Bay which was the highlight of our trip.

In this post, Karen and Thomas share their Lapa Rios Tropical Adventure experience, probably the most last-minute trip I’ve put together in my 20 years as a travel planner! They contacted me on a Monday and traveled on Wednesday... of the same week!. This trip great has seen many satisfied travelers and, over the years, been continually updated to be one of our most popular trips (especially for couples and families with children over 6 years old).  Let me share what they had to say in their review of the trip..."Hi Grettel: I can hardly put into words what a fabulous trip we had—starting from the moment I spoke with you on the phone everything went like clockwork.

Guest review from Undiscovered Caribbean Costa Rica Adventure"Thanks for a great trip. We received excellent prep information. Having done many trips without a tour group, much of the information was a gentle reminder. The checklists were time saving and thoughtful.Both lodges offered different experiences and they were both wonderful. Selva Bananito was amazing and different. The Shawanda Lodge was lovely with lots of wildlife on the grounds. I loved the snorkeling and experience in Cahuita. The waterfall hike and rappel was awesome. Other highlights were the boat ride and day at the Bribri Indigenous community, the salsa lesson and cooking lessons and the Sloth Sanctuary.Alex Arias was professional, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He watched out for our comfort and safety and made sure that we had the best experience possible. He was able to teach us about the history of the country and the places we were visiting and had...
