Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

Canoeing down a private lagoon was one of the many highlights I had during my week in the Osa.

Lokal Travel handpicks adventures that offer a genuine chance to experience local life. For example, you can canoe through a private lagoon in the Costa Rican rainforest or learn a traditional Cambodian musical instrument from a local master or staying in a handcrafted eco lodge with the Lisu Hill Tribe of northern Thailand. Lokal’s growing network of local partners and trusted communities offer one-of-a-kind experiences.

About Lokal Travel:

“We’ve built a platform where travelers can discover and book experiences that directly support local livelihoods, protect natural wonders and preserve cultural traditions. There are plenty of sites for booking chain hotels, bus tours or empty apartments – we think it should be just as easy to book expeditions through the Amazon with indigenous guides or stays in community-run lodges in the Andes.” – Lokal Travel

Why choose Lokal Travel?

Lokal represents a unique kind of travel opportunity to experience local life in untouched, remote and rural areas around the world. Places that most travelers would never ever dream of experiencing and a much needed income to preserve a way of life. All trips work to support local communities by putting money directly into the hands of locals and supporting work to preserve natural and cultural heritage. Generally, only 5% of money spent by tourism around the world goes back into local hands however with Lokal Travel 80% of the money is reinvested back into the community. It is a fantastic way to promote sustainable, responsible travel.

Special perk: For my readers, up to 50% discount for the entire month sale. (For public, special launch deals end this Thursday). To book your next adventure, click here
