Corcovado & Osa Peninsula

Spectacular nature on Costa Rica's remote Pacific Coast

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.

Incredible biodiversity

Home to 140 mammal species, 116 types of amphibian and reptile, 463 different bird species and some 10,000 varieties of insect, the wildlife of the Osa Peninsula 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. If you're really lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of a rare jaguar slinking along the forest floor. And, at the edge of the ocean, iguanas share golden sands with nesting turtles as dolphins and whales play in the Pacific Ocean swells.


A remote and beautiful coast

Towards the coast the 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 humans, 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 several resorts only accessible via boat. It all adds to the sense of exclusivity and adventure.
