"Breathtaking Nature, Friendly Hosts, and Really Good Food...


This is an amazing place to stay and find peace. We were there with a group of 18 people. Don Ricardo and the whole group of of hosts are really warm-hearted and welcoming. The rooms are simple but clean. They support with the earnings of the Hostel a turtle project two beaches away, which don Ricardo and his partner are in charge of. The food was really good and really typical Costa Rican. They organized some good tours for us, like fishing and some unforgettable horseback-riding trips. They also did two campfires for us on the beach at night. We will never forget that sky, the rides with the horses and these people. I highly recommend you to visit this hidden treasure in Osa. Thanks a lot for an incredible experience!!!

"Perfect Place To Switch Off The Everyday Life...


Located 20 boat minutes away from Bahía Drake, Life For Life Hostel is a great place for everyone who wants to switch off the everyday life and those who want to experience the Costa Rican wildlife in all its beauty. Lots of monkeys, reptiles, colorful birds, jungle and beautiful coasts make it a perfect place for nature lovers. The accommodation is built up with few cabins, each consist of bunk beds and a small bathroom. The accommodation is simple, but clean and absolutely sufficient. You can enjoy typical Costa Rican meals, which were always very tasty and fresh. For active travelers there is the possibility to book or do activities like horseback riding, snorkeling, canoeing or just go swimming or surfing in the pacific. We stayed there in April for one week with a group of 20 people and Ricardo, the family, the team and the volunteers of Life For Life hostel made a very special time for all of us that we would not want to miss. Pura Vida!
