Let me start by saying that the holiday I just had in Costa Rica was wonderful, there is nothing quite like leaving snow behind for sun and adventure. We spent 5 days at Jinetes de Osa, all of which were most enjoyable. We arrived at the Drake airport (Google this if you are thinking it’s a bustling airport) which is...

This was hands down the best place I have ever paid money to stay. It has the simple elegance and quietude of a tropical destination I expect. Its not luxurious, and even austere in some respects, but thats what made it great. The staff were wonderful, warm and gracious. The accomodations were simple but spotlessly clean and just enough of...

My wife, our adult son, and I spent two weeks here in January 2010. We had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about the Osa Peninsula, one of the most important natural areas in all of Central America. The hotel itself was pleasant, unpretentious, and informal. It consists of several buildings right along the shore of Drake Bay;...

My sister and I stayed at Jinetes for four nights. The staff at Jinetes (especially Carolina, with whom I e-mailed multiple times about our reservation request) was extremely helpful and friendly, and our stay could not have been smoother. We booked one night in a standard room (room 8, you want to avoid this one if you can as it...

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our time. The rooms are very basic but the staff are helpful and friendly, the food and fresh bread is delicious, the hiking in Corcavado was amazing and the whole experience was great. The diving was good, the divemasters were great in the water but had terrible people skills on land.

Briefly put - this was the greatest place I've ever gone. Every moment was an intriguing adventure. The place was great, the people excellent, food also excellent. I recommend the "Jungle at night" tour with the bug lady.

Getting there and back was more than a little difficult. We took the boat option, and I would recommend the flight instead. Once we got there, the experience was sublime. The staff was SO friendly and accommodating, the other guests were warm and the place had a great sense of community. They made us veggie food and even cooked the...

We stayed at Jinetes for 6 nights in mid November, and it was fantastic. The rooms were basic but comfortable. However, the charm is the remote location and the fantastic staff. Jessica and Krista were great and extremely helpful and accomodating, especially when arranging last minute excursions.. We also loved the fact that it is a small place so we...
