Epic Osa Rainforest Adventure

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Epic Osa Rainforest Adventure

Join a small group of intrepid travelers and Lokal co-founders on a unique adventure to Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula – home to an astounding 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity! You'll connect with local residents from several rural communities who will welcome you into their homes, share their way of life, and provide a glimpse into a rugged, wild side of the country that few travelers ever get to experience. We'll also venture deep into the rainforest to explore pristine swimming holes, observe incredible wildlife in Corcovado National Park and relax on a beautiful beach or two. Better still, every place we go will be tied to local efforts to improve communities and protect the beautiful, fragile environment on the peninsula!

A magical journey

Lokal delivers a truly special adventure in this amazing corner of Costa Rica. We experienced the beauty of this place over and over again each day — hiking in the rainforest, listening to howler monkeys, watching scarlet macaws fly overhead, swimming in waterfalls, snorkeling with schools of fish, watching the sunrise from a mountaintop. But the real magic was in experiencing every bit with our local hosts. We were welcomed into homes and businesses in a very genuine, connected way. We shared meals and stories. And we learned so much about what it takes to preserve this special place. Beauty is all around in the Osa — in its landscapes, wildlife and people.

My experience in the Osa changed me

It is safe to say that I am not a "nature person." I am an Angeleno, a city girl, never really went on hikes, except occasionally on a park trail. Never really camped or roughed it except for two times in my life where I had my blow up mattress and feather pillow in tow. I wanted to experience something profound and push myself outside my comfort zone so I booked this trip with Lokal and I am so delighted that I did! Not only was every day filled with some incredible magical experience in paradise that left a mark on my soul providing me with everlasting memories, but this trip also changed the way I viewed tourism in general. What Lokal has curated is not just a beautiful trip, they are helping to forge the path for good. A social movement connecting travelers with meaningful cultural experiences. Where your money supports the community you visit. I am so grateful to Eytan and Lokal for providing me this opportunity to experience the profound beauty of the Osa and to change this harden city girl into a nature lover and a conscious traveler.

Amazing trip!!!

This trip was everything I wanted it to be. A nice mix of adventure, community, and nice weather! The group was small (4 total) and we all got along great and became a little family by the end. I had a great time meeting so many people in the Oza community and getting to know them a little bit. Everyone was so friendly and always invited us into their homes for meals and to learn about their culture. Hiking in the jungle was challenging but definitely doable and very enjoyable - especially the swimming hole at the end! The other activities like zip-lining, snorkelling, and horseback riding were great and complemented the hiking and cultural tours. I learned a lot about the Oza and felt like I really got to experience it. I highly recommend this trip for anyone that wants something unique and a little bit different from what you can do on your own. Overall, this trip was great!!!

I was excited to come, but I never could have imagined the power of the experiences I've had over the past few days.
