An adventure on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica

There are many stories about how remote yet interesting the Osa Peninsula is. Articles in the internet assure that it was a great place for adventurers. Since I’m always looking for new and fun things to do with my family so my husband and I decided to head off to the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica.

After doing a lot of research we decided that we were going to get there by Nature Air. This something that some friends recommended to us. Nature air is an ecological airline here Costa Rica. At first I was a bit worried about flying in these small prop planes but when I brought myself to look out the window I relaxed and started to enjoy the view. The view was simply gorgeous! The tiny airport we landed in wasn’t so great but it was ok.

The trip was a great adventure. First we jumped on the back of a pick up truck and after a long ride of bouncing up and down a dirt road that took around 40 minutes, we found the place we were staying in.

We finally made it to our accommodations to find out that it was just steps away from the beach but away from the main town of Puerto Jimenez. This was a great opportunity for us to relax and forget about the rest of the world. Soon after we got there we decided to visit the Corcovado National Park. The National Geographic calls Corcovado National Park is the “most biologically intense place on Earth”. We had our time limited in the park but luckily we were able to see a lot of wildlife such as monkeys, iguanas and many colorful birds.

Just one word of advice for you adventurous travelers if you do go to the Osa Peninsula avoid the rainy season, if you don’t you will be stuck along muddy and flooded roads. It is also a good idea to always travel by air to save time. On the other hand, you will definitely find the place a very exciting venue for you and your family.
