Costa Rica - Osa Peninsula

Drake Bay Puerto Jimenenz Matapalo

The Osa Peninsula is located in the Puntarenas province in southwestern Costa Rica.

Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica

It is one of the most biologically intense places on earth, often referred to as a "bio-gem". At least half of the species living in Costa Rica can be found on the Osa. Corcovado National Park, part of the Osa Conservation Area, is considered Costa Rica's crown jewel. A primary forest, lowland tropical rainforest and a vast array of wildlife make this a place to see and respect.
