Epic Osa Peninsula Rainforest Adventure

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Epic Osa Peninsula Rainforest Adventure

If you're an adventure seeker looking to truly immerse yourself in the beauty and culture of Costa Rica, then this trip to the Osa Peninsula is for you!

Home to an astounding 2.5% of the world's biodiversity, the Osa Peninsula is a truly special place. On this trip you'll have the opportunity to connect with locals from three disctinct rural communities and get a glimpse into their ways of life. These friendly locals will welcome you into their homes and show you a side of Costa Rica that few travelers get to experience.

But it's not all about cultural immersion - this trip also includes plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure. We'll venture deep into the rainforest to explore crystal clear swimming holes and observe the incredible wildlife in Corcovado National Park. And of course, no trip to Costa Rica would be complete without some time relaxing on a beautiful beach (or two).

Every place we go will be tied to local efforts to improve communities and protect the beautiful, fragile environment on the peninsula. So not only will you get to have an amazing vacation, but you'll also be making a positive impact on the places visited.

Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Join a small group of intrepid travelers and a Lokal co-founder on a unique adventure to the Osa 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.
