Aguila de Osa Inn is a Costa Rican treat in that it offers fine dining, luxurious accommodations and access to Costa Rica's splendors all in the same place. Here, guests can count on upscale accommodations inside the walls of the resort and true Costa Rican adventure outside of them.

Overview

Aguila de Osa Resturant
Aguila de Osa Resturant

Enjoy great company, fine dining and luxurious accommodations all while being right on the edge of one of the last truly wild places in Costa Rica. Aguila de Osa Inn is nestled quietly in the jungled-covered hillsides of Osa Peninsula and offers a stunning panorama of Drake Bay, the perfect setup to experience once-in-a-lifetime marine and rainforest adventures.

Aguila de Osa is set against a backdrop of vibrant green forest and stunning Pacific shoreline, which is the first indicator to guests they're in for a sumptuous stay. From the moment guests enter the lobby, they're met with gracious hospitality and touches of class one would not normally expect to find in an inn off the beaten track. The above-quality service continues through the great room, across the lush grounds and into the beautifully-decorated guest rooms.

Though Aguila de Osa Inn is a treat in and of itself, the real wonder lies beyond its walls. The Osa is a top destination for adventurers from around the world as it offers convenient access to Caño Island Biological Marine Reserve, Corcovado National Park, Terraba –Sierpe Mangroves (the last mangroves on Central America's Pacific Coast) and other thrilling adventures.

After a day of birdwatching, scuba diving, kayaking or all three, guests can give their bodies a break while their senses take a journey in the spectacular Great Room at Aguila de Osa. In the Great Room, taste buds rejoice over choice cuts of the freshest seafood seasoned with organic herbs sourced directly from local farms. Sides consist of produce that also come from nearby homesteads. As the taste buds drool over exotic culinary delights, the eyes can take in the spectacular ocean and rainforest views that surround the hall.

After dinner, guests have the choice to socialize at the hotel's bar, where bartenders dish up a tropical storm of flavorful cocktails. For those guests who have renewed energy after enjoying a healthy yet satisfying meal, resident naturalist guides offer night tours to give them a glimpse of the jungle's transformation as it awakens for the "day."

Aguila de Osa's founding member, Bradd, and two other local hotel owners, bought the land on which the inn sits to prevent the deforestation of the Osa Peninsula. Since the success of their efforts, the group has remained true to their environmentally friendly ways. Aguila de Osa is committed to excellence in sustainable tourism, which is does by sourcing food from local farmers, recycling waste and conserving water. The hotel also supports the Corcovado Foundation, which focuses on sea turtle conservation, sustainable tourism, the environment, community development and responsible marine tourism.

"Very friendly staff, good food and in a great location. We did 5 days of diving in September. The viz wasn’t as good as some places , but lots of life and Hump back whales to observe to and from dives - and incredibly , listen to under the water. The trip to Corcovado was excellent , as were the local wildlife watching excursions. No air con in the rooms , but good fans and we didn’t find it a problem in September. Plenty of bugs about , but nothing scary , and we received no mosquito bites. 5 star ! "

"Date of travel:

Winter, 2005

I have never before been inspired to write a review of a place I have been, but this was one of the most enjoyable travel experiences of my life.

After traveling 14 hours from NYC by jet/tiny plane/jeep/outboard motor boat, we pulled up, exhausted, to a dock. There was a young woman in shorts catching the lines from the boat driver. Hablo Engles? "Oh yes, I'm from Rhode Island, my uncle owns this place."

She brought us into a beautiful dinning area with long tables, a magnificent view of the bay, polished floors, very well stocked bar, a massive thatch roof, and a clear wall-free view out to the water. (No mosquitos!! - I could tell you why, but you'll have more fun learning on a night time jungle walk with the staff biologists.)

First order of business was to serve us icy cold beer and amazing fresh fruit, and to listen sympathetically to the long woeful tale of our escape from frigid New Jersey.

Refreshed, we were ready to climb to our room. (Unfortunately this place is NOT handicap friendly, there is a lot of climbing, bring appropriate footgear.) High on top of the hill, yet nestled in the jungle, was our beautiful private cabin with a balcony overlooking the bay with perfect sunsets. The balcony was furnished with chairs, rockers and a hammock for watching said sunsets.

If we never moved from the balcony it would of been an amazing vacation. The Costa Rican Airforce did multiple daily fly-overs (Costa Rica has no airforce, it's their pet name for the large flocks of pelicans that grace their skies). Amazing birds, flowers, plants and a massive iguana who played 'Where's Waldo' with us day after day.. "oh, look! See the tree with yellow flowers? He's on the second branch from the bottom."

Yes, you wake up very early. The birds make sure of that. But no matter how early I rose, there was always fresh hot coffee in a thermous outside my door.

Every day was a new trip. Snorkeling at Cano Island, Corcovado National Forest, Swimming with Dolphins (the dolphins were not that cooperative, but it was a lovely day)and the facinating night time jungle walk with the biologists. We discovered a tiny beach on a 20 minutes walk that could of come right out of Gilligan's Island. We went there several times and had it all to ourselves.

They also have diving and deep sea fishing.. if they catch a good one, it's sushi for everyone that night in the dinning room. Everyone eats together, and shares the story of their day's adventures.

If I had five days to do something GREAT in.. this would be my #1 choice.

Yes, it is expensive, but you get your money's worth"
