Hugging Costa Rica’s southern border with Panama, the Osa Peninsula occupies a vast swathe of rainforest, renowned for its immense biodiversity. Its wetlands, national parks and wild Pacific coastline contain at least half of all the species in Costa Rica.
The Corcovado National Park is not to be missed. Lush jungle collides with dark volcanic sands and emerald waters. The plant life is otherworldly, providing a habitat for sloths, white-faced capuchins, ocelot, giant anteater, tapirs, jaguars, toucans and scarlet macaw. The marine life is no less breath-taking, including sea turtles, bottlenose and spinner dolphins, whale sharks, rays and, from December to June, Humpback Whales.
The Osa Peninsula is for those drawn to adventure away from the crowds. You will fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and wake to the calls of howler monkeys. By day, explore secluded beaches and hidden waterfalls, snorkel or dive in the coral reefs of Isla del Cano, hike the trails through the Corcovado National Park and enjoy dolphin and whale spotting in the Dulce Gulf.
We can help you organise your own tailor-made programme of tours, activities and expeditions around the peninsula with a private English-speaking guide.
