For a decade film crews have worked from the Osa Conservation Campus including the BBC, Netflix, Disney, National Geographic, and many more.

Our crew stayed at Osa Conservation for a month in May 2022 whilst filming for the BBC Natural History Unit. Our stay was brilliant – the cabins were very comfortable, the food was incredible but most of all the staff were so helpful and generous with their time.

We couldn’t have asked for a better place to film.”

We have worked with over 45 film crews

We had a very successful shoot, received great professional/knowledgeable assistance, allowing us to capture all the wildlife footage we had planned in this beautiful, wild corner of Costa Rica.

Osa Conservation is a fascinating place, our BBC Natural History crew visited for one month in 2022 and learnt a lot staying here. We were simply spoiled with wildlife, alongside being surrounded by passionate, helpful and friendly people who are each working on fascinating and important conservation projects. The food is delicious, and the accommodation allows you to get comfortable and feel ‘at one’ with the jungle. We were sad we had to leave!

We would definitely recommend visiting or working at Osa Conservation. The conservation work being carried out there is diverse and significant and the strong community feel makes you feel like you are part of something important.
