When I decided to plan my trip to Costa Rica I was looking for a place that would allow me to slow down, rest, get centered, and feel nourished, while still having that comfort of home feeling. WOW! This place exceeded all my expectations.

When we drove up and walked into our place, I was blown away by how spacious and inviting this place was. One of my most memorable moments staying at Selva Escondida was waking up to the singing of the many wildlife; such as birds and monkeys, and the breathtaking views of the jungle and ocean from the master bedroom. I truly felt that I was on top of the world and a part of nature. The property is amazing with the plethora of fruit trees, beautiful flowers, the aroma of the ylang ylang trees, and the many little critters that greeted us.

We ventured out on the 250 acres and hiked throughout the property and visited the hidden overlooks. We watched the sunset from the Mirado overlook. Sooo Amazing. Definitely a must...

Selva Escondida was the highlight of our Costa Rican adventure. As we made our way up the steep winding road to the entrance of the property, we were greeted by life sized mayanesque statues, a large iron gate and Vin. Vin (pronounced bean), the property manager, opened the gate and lead us through a 1/2 mile winding jungle mountain driveway, handed us the keys to the casa and left us to it. As he drove away we looked at each other in amazement realizing that we had just arrived at Shangri La.

Since we spent most of our trip doing laborious/adventurous things all around the Osa Peninsula, Selva Escondida provided a different kind of Pura Vida experience. It was one of relaxation, comfort and jungle luxury mixed together to create the ultimate existence. I cannot put into words the feeling I had waking up to the sun rising over the mountain as I looked down my toes to the ocean from our bed. Each morning we would wake up with the sun, eat fresh fruit and drink coffee...
