Corcovado & Osa Peninsula

Visit Corcovado & Osa Peninsula

Introduction

The Osa Peninsula is one of the best-kept secrets in Costa Rica. Described by National Geographic as 'the most biologically intense place on earth', it's unarguably the most pristine of all Costa Rica's ecosystems.

The wildlife here is so abundant that it spills over the boundaries of Corcovado National Park. Baird's tapirs, ocelots and monkeys are so numerous that sightings are virtually guaranteed throughout the parkland and surrounding corridor of nature reserves.

Towards the coast this lush vegetation gives way to idyllic beaches and some of the richest coral reefs in the world. Diving here is spectacular and the protected waters around Cano Island boast some of the best dive sites in Costa Rica.

Remarkably untouched by human habitation and tourism, the main reason why many travellers don't make it this far south is the peninsula's relative isolation; even getting to your hotel can be an adventure, with many places to stay only accessible via boat.
