The Osa Peninsula, situated in the Southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica, is home to at least half of all the flora and fauna found in Costa Rica. Its vast ecological riches have been recognized by National Geographic, and classified as the place with the highest bio-diversity in the world. The Osa area is considered among the most interesting nature destinations in Costa Rica.
The main town on the Peninsula is Puerto Jiménez, where the local airport is located, along with Drake Bay and Palmar Sur. These three towns represent the main access points to the famed Corcovado National Park. The region is characterized by its turquoise waters, cascading waterfalls, lazy rivers, exuberant primary rainforests, and tropical beaches.
Further offshore and set across the Peninsula is Isla del Caño Biological Reserve, which protects a Pre-Colombian cemetery with interesting spheres as well as a rich coral reef that surrounds it. Osa Peninsula is ideal for snorkeling and first-class scuba diving in an eco-destination that should not be missed.
