Guaria de Osa EcoLodge & Ethnobotanical Gardens

About This Center

A wilderness, roadless, rainforest beach venue, at times powered by the sun, GUARIA de OSA is where you can experience unadulterated Nature. This is a place for people who adore the wilderness and wish to bask in its splendor ­ where the root of life can be recaptured and there is plenty of time to swim and have fun!!

Amidst a timeless Nature Sanctuary on the OSA PENINSULA of COSTA RICA known as "The Little Amazon" -- home of one of the great stands of Tropical Rainforests described as "the most biologically intense place on Earth" by National Geographic.

Only a few kilometers away from Corcovado National Park, our majestic, spacious three story West House, with rising eaves and observatory cupola, has an epic view of the sparkling Pacific Ocean, surrounded by primary Rainforest, abundant wildlife, and bordered by scarlet macaw-laden paradise beaches. Guaria de Osa harbors rare ethnobotanicals and a collection of endangered indigenous medicinal plants.

Guaria de Osa, a sustainably built centre, welcomes the global community of teachers and facilitators who wish to host creative workshops and retreats on the Osa Peninsula.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
