Described by National Geographic as 'the most biologically intense place on Earth', the Osa Peninsula is one big wildlife park. Yet, the jewel in its fauna-filled crown has to be the Corcovado National Park. Isolated, inaccessible and breathtakingly beautiful, the park is one of the most remote in Costa Rica and home to a plethora of endangered animal and plant species. It has become a popular ecotourism destination is recent years and it’s easy to see why; dense forests open up onto unspoilt deserted beaches, while scarlet macaws, resplendent quetzals, red-eyed tree frogs and tapirs live peacefully
undisturbed in one of the thirteen major ecosystems which Corcovado National Park plays host to. We could spend hours naming every mammal, bird, amphibian and reptile species, but suffice to say it houses an astonishing 2.5% of the world's total biodiversity and there are hundreds of species, many of which are endemic. The best ways to explore Corcovado National Park include hiking and trekking with a naturalist guide, taking a boat trip to La Llorona Waterfall and even diving or snorkelling around Isla del Caño, in the nearby Corcovado Bay.
