Ready for a deeper dive into the wilderness? An absolute must for nature lovers, Corcovado National Park is a pristine experience whose remote location makes it much less frequented by tourists – so you can skip the crowds while you immerse yourself in its incredible biodiversity. With ancient rain forest, abundant wildlife, tropical birds and a teeming ocean reef, this is one of nature’s most impressive displays.
The Osa Peninsula
Located in southwest of the country, the Osa Peninsula is home to at least half of all species found in Costa Rica. It’s a brilliant opportunity for the intrepid family to experience the jungle world of leaf cutter ants and the rich biodiversity of Corcovado National Park.
Primary Rain Forest
Ancient and untouched by human activity, primary rain forest is as pristine as it gets. It’s 1000 years of uninterrupted nature; huge trees, draping vines and an overhead canopy that blocks out the sky. Hike lush trails through giant Corcovado National Park, teeming with busy wildlife — monkeys, sloths, scarlet macaws, tapirs, coatis, harpy eagles and more all live here.
The coast of this biological reserve is a breeding ground for humpback whales and frequented by dolphins and sea turtles. The crystalline waters allow excellent visibility making the surrounding coral reef the best snorkeling in the country. Glide past manta rays, white tip reef sharks, parrot fish and schools of jacks – you’ll never forget it.
