Our Ultimate Osa Peninsula Holiday

Wild beaches, tropical fjords and primary rainforest, brimming with biodiversity and showcased by passionate locals. This is a special trip in a very special place.

According to National Geographic, the Osa Peninsula is the most biodiverse place on earth. But, as we introduce you to the people, you'll see why it is so much more than 'just' that.

Across the peninsula you'll meet brilliant conservationists, innovative farmers, passionate naturalists and the 'ordinary' Ticos who make this place anything but ordinary. In their company, you'll be immersed in local ways of life, experience food at its freshest and encounter enough wildlife to fill your own field guide.

Enjoy reading this taster itinerary. Please Request Full Details if you'd like to know more, or to discuss how we can tailor this holiday for you.
