Unlike most beach destinations, the coolest place to stay on the Osa is NOT directly on the beach. The dark volcanic sands keep the beaches scorching hot late into the night, also attracting sand fleas which love that heat in the late afternoons. Beaches are also public with minimal privacy and there is a good reason why the beaches are deserted all day- they are HOT! The coolest places to stay are elevated above the beaches. Sombra de la Lapa rainforest reserve is 400' above sea level, but only a few minutes away from beaches.
