Corcovado & the Osa Peninsula

The Osa peninsula is nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Golfo Dulce in the remote south-west corner of Costa Rica. Home to the Corcovado National Park and covered in dense primary rainforest, this magnificent and remote peninsula offers excellent hiking trails and an incredible concentration of flora, such as the 70-metre-high ceiba tree, and fauna, including howler and spider monkeys, sloths, ocelots, anteaters, scarlet macaws and more than 350 other bird species. Offshore, palm-fringed Caño island is home to beautiful sandy beaches and excellent snorkelling opportunities. On the north-eastern side of the Golfo Dulce lies the Piedras Blancas National Park, which offers a habitat and biodiversity similar to that of the Corcovado National Park. Jungle lodges range in this area from simple and comfortable to rustic luxury
