Peninsula de Osa means Drake Bay, Corcovado and much more.
Be it that you have read Treasure Island or have browsed through Youtube adventure videos, you have imagined nature in its wildest. When you come to the Osa Peninsula, you can stop imagining.
Drake Bay picks up after the infamous "Pirate" Francis Drake and many say this is the seed of many a pirate story.
Lonely Planet has a great way to put it:
One of Costa Rica's most isolated destinations, Bahia Drake (drah-kay) is a veritable Lost World, bordered by Parque Nacional Corcovado to the south. In the rainforest canopy, howler monkeys greet the rising sun with their haunting bellows, while pairs of macaws soar between the treetops, filling the air with their cacophonous squawking. Offshore in the bay, pods of migrating dolphins glide through turquoise waters near the beautiful Isla del Caño marine reserve.
One of the reasons why Bahia Drake is brimming with wildlife is that it remains largely cut off from the rest of the country. Life is centered around the sedate village of Agujitas, the area's transport hub, which attracts increasing numbers of backpackers and nature lovers with inexpensive digs and plenty of snorkeling, diving and wildlife-watching opportunities. The more remote corners of Bahia Drake are home to some of Costa Rica's best (and more exclusive) wilderness lodges.
Isla del Caño is one of those rare places in the world, where salt and fresh water meet, and don't mix. Literally.
Getting here however, is an adventure in itself. Forget driving, and if by sea, first get to Los Sueños and cruise 2.5 hours south or 3.5 from Puntarenas. Golfito is the other choice, but again... you are MUCH better off flying here.
Once you are here, you'll find resorts that blend with nature and make you feel pampered yet always in sintony with the wild. You are absolutely going to love it.
We bring you here and connect you with the top places for food and fun. Hotels in the area are as diverse as the wildlife you will encounter.
Do the south in style, do it the #SkyWay
