1.  Corcovado National Park

Baird's Tapir

Referred to as the most biologically intense place on the planet, Corcovado National Park is something you will not want to miss. Taking up over one-third of the whole Osa Peninsula this park is full of life.

Corcovado National Park contains thirteen major ecosystems. It includes beach habitats, mangrove swamps, coastal marine, highland cloud forest, jolillo palm forest, lowland forest and more.

There are about 500 species of trees that inhabit. This park has 25% of the trees in Costa Rica.

Corcovado National Park inhabits the largest population of Scarlet Macaws in the country. There are also over 375 different species of bird so bird-watchers will not be disappointed.

There are 140 species of mammals, 116 reptiles and amphibians, 40 types of freshwater fish, between 6 and 10 thousand types of insects, and also over 220 types of butterflies. If you are a nature lover then I would just travel to the park to enjoy the beauty.

Other Reasons People Go To Corcovado National Park

Corcovado National Park offers many tours and activities such as Dolphin and Whale Watching, snorkeling and scuba diving in Cano Island, Sport Fishing, surfing, bird-watching, horseback riding, and even nighttime tours of the jungle.

Hikers would also love the experience of going through such a magnificent jungle. There are 4 ranger stations with their own sets of trails and they are The San Pedrillo Rangers Station, La Sirena Ranger Station, La Leona Ranger Station, and Los Patos Ranger Station.

No distractions, just you two having the quality time you deserve. You will grow closer than ever with the privacy and peace offered here.


3. Outdoor Fun

Like offroad adventure then Costa Rica offers some exciting outdoors activities outside of the things mentioned in the first point. One of the most popular outdoor activities is zip lining. Zip lining over a beautiful jungle is a rush. You get a great view of mother nature while enjoying some of the best zip lining in Costa Rica.

Other off-road activities are four-wheel drive, ATV, and off-road tours. Think of driving an ATV with friends or family through an area as beautiful and exciting as the Osa Peninsula. See nature in its habitat as you fly by on your vehicle.

Something that is very popular in the Osa Peninsula is kayaking, canoeing, speed boating, river rafting and tubing. This is the perfect area for these activities. Located on the Pacific Ocean you can’t get a better spot for water activities.

Traveling on your Yacht. Then travel through the Osa. With marinas like The Fish Hook, you have a place to dock and also you can dock here free if you book a stay at The Whale Resort.


4. You Can Stay At A Private Beachfront All-Inclusive Resort
