I´ve been in Clandestina in several opportunities and each time gets better. The natural scene in which the lodge is located is just wonderful. There is so much to do around that your days will be gone with many things yet to discover. Beach, waterfalls, all kinds of wildlife, adventure, fishing... The meals are delicious and the river that goes...

Osa Clandestina is a hidden gem tucked away in the coastal rain forest of the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica. The area provides some of the best eco-tourism in the country and is one of the most bio-diverse regions not only in Costa Rica, but the world. Within just a short walk around the grounds, surrounding beaches and rainforest,...

My husband and I stayed at Osa Clandestina over the Christmas Break and we had a wonderful time at the lodge.

My two teenage children and I stayed at Osa Clandestina in the last week of December. As mentioned in other reviews, this is a lovely hideaway which feels like a home away from home. The staff, led by the lodge manager Mary Alice, is friendly and extremely helpful. The lodge itself is 5 minutes from the beach by walking. Mary...

This place is incredible, by far the best beach & surf vacation I've ever been on. Didn't know much about the Osa Peninsula before booking the trip, but was blown away as soon as we arrived. There are lush rainforests filled with wildlife, insane surf spots, isolated beaches, and all of it is relatively easy to get to. Maybe just...

Stayed here for a week with friends and had one of the most amazing vacations. The bungalows are spacious and comfortable (beds have mosquito nets, always a plus in this part of the world). Everything is very clean and well-kept. And the beach is a five-minute or less walk away (I highly recommend surfing lessons from Pollo). The common area...
