Welcome to the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

The Osa Peninsula, located on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, is one of the most diverse and scenic rainforest destinations in the world.  Come here to find untouched, breathtaking scenery and wildlife, secluded beaches, and come in touch with your inner warrior. 

Encanta La Vida Jungle Resort

Our jungle style getaway, Encanta La Vida, sits atop a hill just a short hike to the beaches of Matapalo. Matapalo borders one of the largest national parks in Central America, Corcovado. “One of the most biologically diverse places on earth” according to National Geographic. Looking out past the lush vegetation of the jungle, enjoy beautiful views of migrating whales and exotic birds over the Pacific Ocean and Golfo Dulce. Panama is in the distance to the south and east, world famous surf spot Pavones to the east and Playa Zancudo to the north.

We are located inside the rainforest jungle and near 4 beaches: Cabo Matapalo, Pan Dulce, Backwash Bay and Playa Matapalo de Osa.

Encanta la Vida is a one of a kind Jungle Beach Lodge. Throughout the property, you will experience an abundance and variety of animals including monkeys, toucans, macaws, cotamundi, aguiti and sloths often sighted from the cabins.  

Encanta La Vida offers an off-the-beaten-path jungle experience for travelers looking for adventure, immersion in nature and off-the-grid tranquility!
