Overview

At the southern end of Costa Rica’s Pacific coastline, the Osa Peninsula’s rainforest vegetation contrasts with the open pastures of the northern Nicoya Peninsula. Here, in a remote region not easy to navigate in the wet season, there are opportunities for outdoor adventure and getting enveloped by nature. Wildlife reserves have been established throughout this lush region, notably Corcovado National Park, with magnificent biodiversity, sheltering rare species of mammals including the Central American squirrel monkey, white-faced capuchins, ocelots and tapirs. Caimans and crocodiles lurk watchful in the dark lagoons; a rare harpy eagle may circle overhead.

Where to go when - our guide to Osa Peninsula

Osa Peninsula

The weather in Osa Peninsula is wide and varied

Located at the far south-westerly tip of the country, the remote Osa Peninsula is swathed in rainforest which stretches all the way to the Pacific Ocean. It boasts wildlife-rich nature reserves such as the Corcovado National Park. The dry season from January to the end of March makes for the most accessible period for an action packed visit. Humpback whales can be spotted off the shore from August – November.
