Aguila de Osa is an outstanding, mid-range lodge set in a breathtakingly beautiful area of remote, unspoiled rainforest on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula which is known for its incredible biodiversity. This lovely property lies on a bluff by the mouth of the Aguijitas River and offers stunning, sweeping views of Drake Bay. There’s plenty of water and land-based adventure to be had in the two nearby reserves; the Caño Island Biological Reserve is excellent for snorkelling and diving, and a visit to the Corcovado National Park, the largest of Costa Rica’s many national parks, is a must.

There are 11 pristine, characterful guestrooms and two suites. All rooms have captivating views of the surrounding scenery and plenty of windows to let in generous amounts of natural light. They have an open, spacious feel with high, vaulted ceilings and screened windows that let in not only the gentle, cooling breeze, but also the soothing birdsong and wildlife soundtrack of the surrounding forest. Each room has a spacious en-suite bathroom with complimentary toiletries, and both hot water and drinking water are supplied round-the-clock.

The hotel’s open-air restaurant, The Great Room, offers dramatic views of both the ocean and the rainforest, and is one of the main areas for socialising, the other being the Jungle Terrace, which has its own bar where guests typically gather for a round or two of drinks before dinner. Breakfasts are filling and plentiful, while lunches are on the lighter side and dinners feature a selection of sumptuous gourmet dishes.

There are a dozen or more excursions on offer for exploring the lodge’s wonderful, untouched surroundings and rich wildlife. Expert guides will impart their knowledge about the area, its many resident land and marine animals, and the ongoing conservation efforts. Some of the many activities include ziplining through the rainforest canopy, fishing, horse riding along the beach, whale-watching, birdwatching jungle walks and heading out after dark to see some of the many nocturnal species who inhabit the area. There’s also top-notch diving, kayaking and snorkelling on offer at nearby Caño Island.

The lodge welcomes children of all ages, though there are age restrictions on some activities. Two children under the age of 12 can stay in the same room with 2 adults with no additional charge for accommodation or food and there are activity packages tailored to the particular needs and interests of families. Given the remote, wild nature of the hotel’s location, parents are reminded to keep their children under constant adult supervision.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
