Osa Peninsula

The Osa Peninsula, located in the South Pacific, is a model of biodiversity and conservation as it holds 4% of the biodiversity of the planet. The pristine land on the peninsula is covered in white sand beaches and virgin, tropical rain forest. It is a part of Costa Rica that most visitors never see because of its remote location but it is home to over half of all the species living in Costa Rica. With four species of monkeys, exotic birds, countless amphibians and reptiles, the Osa Peninsula is an ideal place for nature watching. There are plenty of things to do on the Osa Peninsula, from bird watching to horseback rides through the jungle, and hiking. The sea, of course, offers various activities such as snorkeling, swimming, SCUBA diving, surfing, kayaking and fishing. It is a primitive area of rugged, natural beauty that is teeming with wildlife and adventure opportunities. Sirena’s Rangers Station: This is one of the most remote nature sanctuaries of the country!
