For this amazing Costa Rican adventure – we explore the Osa Penisula in the Cocorvado National park, one of the most remote and least visited tourist destinations on the continent. Described as ‘the most biologically intense place on Earth’ by National Geographic Magazine, we will paddle our rafts down and trek through this rainforest
This adventure begins in a rain forest lodge located on a 1500 acre private reserve at the mouth of the Pacuare River. This private reserve borders the indigenous Cabecar Indian Reserve and contains more than 40 miles of hiking trails and numerous waterfalls, streams, and pools. After two days paddling in the Pacuare river we continue our adventure to Drake Bay along the southwestern coast of Costa Rica.
Our hiking expedition takes us from the Bay along pristine coastline and through the heart of Corcovado National Park, described as “the most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic Magazine. The Park is entirely contained within Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, whose ecology boats 13 major ecosystems including lowland rain forest, highland cloud forest, jolillo palm forest, mangrove swamp, and varied costal marine habitat. Indeed Corcovado National Park’s remote location, varied and challenging terrain and exceptional biological intensity has earned it the title of “The Last Frontier”!
