In the south west corner of Costa Rica lays the Corcovado National Park, which at 164 square miles occupies a third of the Osa Peninsula. The area is remote, unique and, according to National Geographic, the most biologically intense, bio-diverse place on the planet.
It is the most wildlife-rich area in Costa Rica, with no less than thirteen different types of forest for you to explore. Chief among them is the lush, untouched tropical rain forest - and there are twenty three miles of stunning beaches too. The forests and the ocean teem with wildlife. This is the best place in Costa Rica to see tapir, white-faced monkeys, ocelots and the endangered Baird’s Tapir, among many other reclusive species. This is also the last Central American stronghold of the Jaguar and the place for serious bird watchers. Scarlet macaws and the rare Harpy Eagle live here. There are twenty eight different lizards and a hundred species of butterfly. The list goes on...
Most visitors fly from San Jose and we advise at least a three night stay to allow time to both explore and relax. There are a huge number of different outdoor activities to choose from. You can hike, nature walk, picnic on the beach, kayak and canoe, or take boat trips to spot dolphin. Plus you can scuba dive and snorkel at Cano Island, just 13 miles off shore in Drake's Bay. There you can enjoy pristine coral reef, sharks, rays and turtles.
