Luxury travel to Corcovado and Osa Peninsula
One of the planet's richest nature reserves
Located in the south-west with the lush primary rainforest of the Corcovado National Park spreading itself over 105,000 acres and the marine life- rich Dulce Gulf embracing the littoral to the east, Osa enjoys a exceptional wealth of biodiversity.
National Geographic calls it the “most biologically intense place on Earth” and the Corcovado possesses the greatest variety of tree species on the planet with montane, cloud, prairie, swamp and mangrove vegetation. It is also the place to spot rare mammals such as white-face capuchins, margays, ocelots, tapirs, jaguars and pumas. Scarlet macaws, pelicans and woodpeckers are just some of the birdlife to enjoy and you can watch humpback whales and dolphins cavort in the gulf inlet.
There is great range of very comfortable hotels to choose from that do their best to blend into and protect their surroundings but also make sure you can take full advantage of them too, assuring you are well looked after and have an equally relaxing stay.
We can help you organise your own tailor-made programme of activities, tours and expeditions around the peninsula with a private English-speaking guide and to suit your preferences and time.
