Corcovado and The Osa Peninsula
Costa Rica's diverse flora and fauna and endemic flowers and insects make it a naturalist's delight. The most pristine rainforest is found on the Osa Peninsula surrounded by the inlets and beaches of the Corcovado National Park, tucked away in the south west corner of the country. It is widely considered the crown jewel from amongst an extensive network of national parks across the country and its remote access by short scenic flight from San Jose adds to its appeal as one of the best regions to spot rare wildlife. Explore the rich biodiversity of this National Park with guided tours from a lodge deep in the heart of the forest which may include sunset birding tours, boat trips out on the Golfo Dulce to search for dolphins or snorkel in turquoise waters or perhaps hiking the Osa Trail in the rainforest. This park is particularly excellent for spotting tropical forest mammals such as ocelots, tapir and even - on occasion - jaguars and the birdwatching here is first-rate including hummingbirds, macaws, toucans and hundreds of other species.
