The Osa Peninsula
The Osa Peninsula is considered the most unspoiled and fascinating region of Costa Rica. It has been presented by National Geographic as "The most intense biologically place on earth". It hosts more than 2.5% of the world's biodiversity and many endemic and / or endangered plant and animal species such as the Baird's tapir, the jaguar, the cougar, the ocelot ... and half of the birds visible in Costa Rica .
It is mainly forest. The largest tropical rain forest on the Pacific coast.
It also hides many unknown archaeological treasures but also gold (one of the purest in the world).

Corcovado National Park
With 54,000 hectares, it covers a large part of the Osa Peninsula.
8 types of habitat and 13 different ecosystems are listed. It is home to over 15,313 plant species and 500 trees, 140 mammal species, 367 bird species, 117 reptile or amphibian species, 40 fish species and 6,000 different insects ... and the 4 species of primates present in Costa Rica,

The Golfo Dulce
Commander Cousteau introduced Golfo Dulce as a "tropical fjord". There would be four in the world. It is 51 km long and about 13 km wide. Its maximum depth is about 200 m (10th deepest in the world). On the other hand, the entry of the gulf, less deep, protects it from the strong currents of the Pacific. The absence of industry and / or important urban areas also explains the purity of its water. Finally, the importance of the contribution of the rivers which if spilled explains that the surface water is less salty than that of the ocean.
One of the peculiarities of the Gulf is that the tropical rain forest is in direct contact with the sea ...
The Gulf is home to two species of dolphins, three species of sea turtles, whale sharks ... Humpback whales come here to "mother" ...
