Orsa Peninsula and Corcovado

one of Costa Rica’s most magical, off the beaten track areas

The Osa Peninsula is one of Costa Rica’s most off the beaten track areas, but it’s also one of the most magical. Home to the wondrous Corcovado National Park and half of the country’s wildlife species, this hidden corner of Costa Rica is nature at its finest.

If you’re interested in exploring an unspoilt tropical paradise, then add the Osa Peninsula to your tailor-made vacation to Costa Rica. Largely undeveloped and regarded as one of the most biologically intense spots on the planet, this is the ultimate back to nature experience.

Protecting almost half of the peninsula, the Corcovado National Park is one of the finest parks in the country. You can expect encounters with rare animals such as tapirs, ocelots and jaguars, whilst bird watchers have the opportunity to spot tanagers, harpy eagles and scarlet macaws. You can even discover the nocturnal creatures of the forest on night walks with an expert guide. With such a diverse range of species, you’re virtually guaranteed a memorable wildlife experience.

Even when you’re not searching for wildlife, exploring the park’s beautiful lagoons, isolated beaches and swampy marshes is a pleasure in itself. If you’re looking for a unique experience you can even go on horseback rides through the jungle.

The warm, clear waters and spotless corals of Cano Island make for the ultimate scuba diving conditions. Just a boat ride away from Corcovado, you can swim alongside manta rays, barracudas, sea turtles and the occasional white-tipped shark.
