All information about the Retreat Center is found at Fabulous photos as well and great videos.  You will find that pricing flights is less expensive than you think.  The Blue Osa site helps you do that planning but here is a tip:

Flying In:  You will fly into San Jose, Costa Rica and have an easy change of planes to fly into Puerto Jimenez.  But I would make sure your connections have ample time just in case weather cancels your smaller flight with Nature Airlines.  It is suggested to fly in a day early and stay over in San Jose, acclimate and fly out on the 6am flight on Nature.  Weather then is usually great.  Just a tip from the owners of Blue Osa.

We are 50 meters from the Ocean. Surfing and beach combing, pelicans and whales.  This time of the year we are likely to be seeing the whales raising their calves.

Air conditioning?  This is a Green Eco Retreat so there is no air conditioning but there are fans in all the rooms. evenings are pleasant. The breeze and the beach swims will make it a wonderful experience.
