Exploring Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula

By Paige, Nicaragua, May 2012

No reviews, be the first!

At the far southwestern corner of Costa Rica is the Osa Peninsula, dangling lush and tempting from the mainland. It is off the beaten tourist path, well away from more popular, easily accessible destinations, such as Arenal and Tamarindo.

Travelers are encouraged to allocate at least four days (or better, a week) for the visit, especially if traveling overland. Almost everything—meals, transportation, accommodation—tends to be more expensive here than elsewhere in Costa Rica, particularly in the isolated community around Drake Bay, almost inaccessible to automobile traffic, but it is worth it.
