I loved every second of my stay at LVV. I had a glorious deck with a plunge pool and a hammock. When I wasn't hiking in Corcovado or horseback riding along the pristine beach, I was laying in my hammock listening to the crashing waves. When I got a little warm I just slipped into my fabulous plunge pool. For...

If you are travelling on your own then definitely make sure you're travelling with a 4X4. There is good road until Puerto Jimenez, however from there you have to take a 40km dirt road until the report. It is definitely worth making the trip because once you arrive there you are realising that this one of the most remote and...

Beautiful and scenic, outstanding management and chef. I truly enjoyed my week at LagunaVista Villas. Martine and her team run the place with great energy and passion. It has a beautiful pool and all of the villas I toured had incredible views.

This holiday filled us up with wonder, intrigue and awe. The physical aspects of the buildings seemed to be designed to take advantage of spectacular views- from every vantage point- from the dining area- to the showers and even some of the toilets!. The food was clearly a source of pride (thank you Coco) along the eco philosophy apparent throughout....

Greeted by Martine on our arrival, who was a wonderful, warm, bubbly source off energy and a great hostess. We were shown to Villa 7, which has a great location near to the dining area/bar, with fantastic views over the Lagoon and Pacific Ocean. The rooms are fairly basic, but perfect for the setting. The electricity is run by solar...

Martine is a great hostess with great energy, passion and knowledge of the Osa. Laguna Vista is a lovely place, providing comfort in a balance with nature and sustainability. I really have no criticism for this lovely ecolodge. What a great location immersed in nature. The lagoon nearby is like a bird sanctuary, rich in diversity. Nature is all around...
