The best time to see birds and animals is in the early morning. We will be waking up at 5:30am and have breakfast and coffee before we head out.
From the hostel gate - one direction takes you to the entrance of the San Pedrillo National Forest (2hrs), and the other direction takes you along the jungle-beach path, through the Rio Claro Nature Wildlife Preserve, all the way to the town of Drake Bay, with restaurants, a 4-6 hr round trip trek - it is well worth it! Exquisitely beautiful with countless pristine and hidden beaches to stop at, many with lava rock outcroppings and surprising tide pools within them.
You will be paying the tour operator directly so be sure to BRING ENOUGH CASH! There is a 13% VAT tax on all goods and services, and you will have to pay this in addition to the cost of the tour.

This is one of the best places I've ever been to. The beach directly in front of the hostel is gorgeous. The tents located in the back of property were awesome. They have nice, comfortable beds placed in them and you wake up to the sound of birds chirping. The family who run the place are very warm and welcoming and couldn't have made us feel any more at home.
I HIGHLY recommend this place! It was by far our favorite stay on the whole Osa Peninsula. The 3 meals a day they cook are delicious. I plan on returning sometime within the next few years.
Just an awesome place to relax right on the incredible Drake Bay. Amazing rainforest and scenic views all around.
The staff is super nice and outgoing. You will feel at home on the hammocks overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
I can't recommend Life for Life (and the people who make it such an incredible place!) enough. If you're looking for a really authentic experience in Costa Rica, away from the tourism, filled with nature and wildlife, this is the place to go.
