AT THE HEART OF NATURE AT DIQUIS DEL SUR
Costa Rica covers only 0.03% of the planet's surface area, yet it accounts for about 6% of the world's biodiversity. More than a quarter of its territory is protected in the form of national parks, public or private nature reserves. We can therefore say without a shadow of a doubt, that Costa Rica, is a unique natural haven where flora and fauna take the stage to offer a spectacular show that can be seen nowhere else.
With the largest prehistoric rainforest along the Central American Pacific coast, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most beautiful and biologically diverse places on the planet.
Even though vast areas of valleys were once flourishing banana plantations, much of the region is now covered with dense rainforest, providing the best conditions for wildlife viewing.
With very few entry points, this gem of Costa Rica remains relatively isolated and receives far fewer visitors than other parts of the country. Along the coast, visitors can observe an abundance of mangroves and estuaries, kilometers of pristine beaches, rainforest and of course Corcovado National Park -named the most biologically intense place on the planet by National Geographic - making this southern region one of the most impressive areas of Costa Rica.
A multitude of rivers provides the region with excellent whitewater rafting conditions, not to mention the endless views that can be observed riding zip lines. Osa peninsula offers a front row seat to captivating sunsets that will make you experience the true heart of Costa Rica.
