Rainforest Ocean Discovery Centre & Ethnobotanical Gardens

For group leaders and teachers check out our terrific group rate!

Our campus is splendid for Rainforest and Ocean discovery. Our large hard wood floors and timeless facilities all in close proximity to the beach and rainforest make it a supreme Yoga getaway retreat, biological field study station or family reunion vacation destination.

Proceeds, in part, support The Osa Foundation/Grupo Osanimi's Biodiversity Conservation Projects in the Ecuadorian Amazon and The Osa Peninsula - The "Little Amazon by the Ocean" of Costa Rica!

Protecting the Rainforest, one vacation at a time at Guaria de Osa.
