Everyone knows Costa Rica is known for their spectacular nature and abundant wildlife, but there is one place in the country that outshines the rest of the country. At just 700 square miles in size, the Osa Peninsula holds a whopping 2.5% of the entire world’s biodiversity. Hundreds of species of flora and fauna call the Osa Peninsula home, thanks to the protected Corcovado National Park and wildlife refuges.
Virgin rain forest covers the entire peninsula with the Pacific ocean to the west and the east coast separated from the mainland by the Golfo Dulce. With extremely clean and nutrient rich waters, a lush rain forest and undisturbed beaches, the Osa Peninsula was appropriately named as the most biologically intense place in the world by National Geographic.
We’ve visited the Peninsula several times and each time we are left completely spellbound by its beauty. Here are some of our favorites photos from our journeys so you can see why we, and so many others fall in love with the magical Osa Peninsula.
