Put your expedition gear on and enjoy one of the world’s most stunning tropical regions. Navigate across lush mangroves that slowly open up to the ocean and give you and idea of the vastness of the Pacifc. Reach the remote and mysterious turquoise waters of Isla del Caño for some of the best diving and snorkeling in Costa Rica. Don’t leave without hiking through the unbelievably dense jungle of Corcovado in search for some of the most magical species of plants and animals.
What to do while in Osa Peninsula?
Corcovado tour - Sirena Station: The Sirena Ranger Station is located in the deep, biologically intense center of Corcovado National Park. It takes about an hour and half to reach it by boat from Drake Bay.
