Part of the joy of the Guaria is the journey there...but no worries, they make this easy, as no detail is overlooked as they will plan and ensure each leg of the trip is expedited without flaw. People and places are warm, accommodating from the initial hotel (Brillo de Sol) to the various drivers (boat and car) that show up on time and are welcoming. Guaria is remote yes, but once you are there, you have all the blessings that can be found here on earth-massive ficus, botanicals, companion dogs, the waves of the Pacific, hammocks on the beach, homemade soups, breads and a vegetarian paradise! The Keepers of this sacred place are kind, gracious and a wealth of wisdom as it relates to the plant people of the Rainforest. ;-)
Understand, the Osa is not for all...the nightlife consists of a light show of stars and the music of unknown creatures nested high in trees, the roar of the nearby sea and lights out early as Guaria is solar powered. The days are filled with exploring the origins of plant medicinals, hiking the rainforest (which requires good shoes by the way!) with guides that are warm, wise and caring beyond their years. Special gifts that are embedded throughout the time- the scent of Ylang Ylang and sweetgrass throughout the camp; secret swimming coves; the boat ride through a long winding river that opens into the mouth of the Pacific; a canoe trip by a gentle and sweet guide on the River Claro to a hidden waterfall that is ideal for swimming.
If you are looking for respite from the hustle of urban living, and an opportunity to reflect and connect with your higher self through nature, Guaria de Osa is the true lotus land.
