Top 5 Reasons To Travel To The Osa Peninsula

3. Corcovado National Park
Whale Watching In The Osa Pennusila
Costa Rica meaning Rich Coast when translated is known to be one of the most bio-diverse area’s on earth. Since the late 90’s Costa Rica has become the most highly visited country in Central America with travelers coming from all over the world to witness one of Mother Natures finish works of art.
The government quickly recognized the value of tourism and remains committed to a constant improvement of its infrastructure. The Osa Peninsula has always been known for it’s concentrated abundance of wildlife but until recently has been less traveled than other parts of the country because it’s just been harder to get to. No more! The government has literally paved the way, completing a newly paved road from Chacarita to Puerto Jimenez. They finally connected the Osa to the main coastal highway that leads all the way from Quepos to Panama. Tourists can now enjoy a much safer passage to the Golfo Dulce, crossing the pass that until recently was very rugged and required patience and definitely a four-wheel drive vehicle.
The Whale Watching Experience
The Golfo Dulce is a large deep bay that divides the mainland from the Osa Peninsula. It’s mouth leads into the Pacific Ocean and is also the gateway to a most popular destination for the Humpback whale. These new improvements have provided better access for the incredible experiences of whale watching for the whale watching enthusiasts when traveling to the Osa. These whales travel for thousands of miles coming from both ends of the earth to reach the Golfo Dulce, where they have been instinctually traveling to for centuries to mate and to bare their young. Tourists can now venture out to the Osa and this highly concentrated area of whales, being able to see them first hand for several months out of the year. There are professionally guided all inclusive whale watching vacation packages that offer daily tours combined with other adventurous activities available in the Osa. If you are looking for a wildly adventurous whale watching experience and you want to be up close and in person with these incredibly magnificent whales. You will find them here in the Golfo Dulce. The Whale Resort is a 3.5-acre resort with two luxurious beachfront homes privately secluded on the shores of the Golfo Dulce. We offer all inclusive whale watching packages to accommodate groups of up to 14 people. If your group is seeking an exclusive all-inclusive whale watching vacation, and you want to do it while vacationing in your own private resort with Five Star amenities, The Whale Resort offers the unique experience of renting your own private beachfront resort exclusively to your group only and guarantees the vacation of a lifetime!

So your Costa Rica Vacation has started. As you travel the smooth warm sea at Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, one of the amazing things that would usually start your trip, is a large explosion and splash from the warm waters of the sea. And no, it’s nothing to worry about; it’s just the humpback whales saying hi and welcoming you and your friends.
Golfo Dulce is one of the best places for whale watching in Costa Rica. The Osa Peninsula is always the perfect spot for the longest humpback whale-watching season anywhere in the world. The humpback whale’s migration is split into 2 migrating seasons; one is from July through October and next would be from December through March.
Humpback whales would start their 3 months journey towards Golfo Dulce from the northern and southern hemispheres. These gentle whales would normally do this as an escape from the Orca Whales, their only natural predator that usually harms the baby humpback whales. Golfo Dulce, also known as “sweet water”, is known to be toxic for the Orca whales since it has a great amount of fresh water. Since Orca whales aren’t able to stay on these places, humpback whales would then consider the place as their safe haven especially for bearing their baby whales. Whale watching would just like be watching and observing these humpback whales from their homes.
Osa Peninsula is not only the home for Humpback whales, but also a large amount of different whale species open for watching whole year round. Whale watching enthusiasts from different parts of the world travel to this place to witness these whales living, mating and bearing their young.
In order to enjoy whale watching to the fullest, you would first need a perfect spot for you to stay. The Whale Resort is found in the Osa Peninsula and is built on the shores of the Golfo Dulce Bay itself. It’s like being neighbors with the humpback whales! Whale watching and visiting is an easy access. Plus we offer customizable vacation packages that would surely fit you and your friends’ needs during your stay and your visit with the whales.
