Perfect option to get know Osa, their people and nature!
We believe that: The food tastes better, if you learn how it’s made. The animals are appear closer, if someone shows them to you. The sunrises are more beautiful, with a freshly brewed cup of coffee. That boundaries do not exist, if everyone feels at home. That hotels transform into homes, when the owners sit down for breakfast with you. And a conservation region becomes as large as the communities that make up that area. Enjoy a truly authentic experience with Osa Elemental, an opportunity for you to experience six different communities in Osa and see what each one has to offer.
