Three unique adventures created by Burnham Guides are centered around the virtually undiscovered Golfo Dulce and Osa Peninsula on the South Pacific Coast, one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Spend a week or more with us kayaking, rainforest hiking, practicing yoga, bird, dolphin and whale watching. Lodging is in comfortable eco-lodges with all meals provided. We've created three unique itineraries:


Mar y Luna is a family owned and operated bay front hotel and restaurant that serves top notch fare from fresh seafood to filet mignon, Their menu includes a wide mix of international dishes & great appetizers. Their ambiance alone is a good reason to stop in to visit -great service, beautiful bay views & nautical decor.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner.


The port town of Golfito (literally 'little gulf') is located in Puntarenas Province on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, near the border of Panama. The town lies on a narrow strip of land between the eponymous bay and a hill and consist of two parts, the town proper and shopping area to the south, and a residential area near the port. Still further north are the duty-free zone and an airstrip.
Villas De Oros  -  DRIVING? If you are driving and don't want to stay in Golfito, Ojochal is on the way from San Jose. Just a short drive from Uvita and about 1 1/2 hours from Golfito, it is a very nice small hotel located right on the highway. Rooms are spacious with a small kitchen and cooking area. Don't want to cook? Several good restaurants close by.
Samoa del Sur is in a very spacious and ventilated area overlooking the entry to Golfito Bay and is a great place for watching vessels as they enter and leave port. The restaurant specializes in seafood dishes and specialty pizzas. They also offer a wide variety of international and national dishes from pasta to pepper steak. Their unique bar, shaped like a sailboat, is located in the center of the restaurant and offers festive tiki bar and traditional drinks. Lunch and Dinner.

We were told by the locals of a good place to get "pescado entero" (a full fish-fried whole) and this was definitely good advice! They said the fish were "small" so they gave us two for the price of one...way more than we could eat! The ambiance was very nice, the service friendly and the prices and food both good. Would definitely recommend it and I'd definitely go back to try something else on the menu! The only issue we had, which is obviously not the restaurants fault, is we got eaten alive by mosquitos (through our clothes even). They're obviously aware of it as they lit mosquito coils all around us...very nice of them to do that. :-)
