The Osa Peninsula is a serene paradise in Costa Rica that provides an untouched place for nature lovers and adventurers.

With an abundance of wildlife and jungle, there are few places left in the world that compare. Corcovado National Park boasts an incredible number of wild species, including jaguars, tapirs, sloths, anteaters, and four species of monkeys – squirrel, white-faced capuchin, spider & howler. Bird lovers will delight in seeing toucans, scarlet macaws, herons, hummingbirds & tanagers. Caño Island Biological Reserve offers water lovers a chance to snorkel in its clear, turquoise waters. Mantas, sea turtles, dolphins, and an array of fish can be seen here.

journey itinerary

Arrive to Juan Santamaría International Airport (Airport Code: SJO) where you’ll find transport to our Central Valley Hotel, Finca Rosa Blanca.

Experience authentic Costa Rica; combine luxury accommodations, a sustainable forested coffee farm, and cuisine that creatively honors the culinary traditions of the coffee highlands. Share in the richness of local culture, steaming volcanoes, cloud forests, and the splendor of the abundant nature surrounding this stunning hotel.

We will overnight not far from the airport to be flexible for varying arrival times on the first day, but we advise arriving no later than 4 pm if possible.

Enjoy a gourmet dinner together before a good night of rest in the mountains of Costa Rica.

Rise and shine to a hot cup of deliciously fresh Costa Rican coffee before joining our group for a delicious farm-to-table breakfast.

Immediately after breakfast, we will depart for our 5.5-hour drive to the Pacific Coast in a comfortable van with air-conditioning and wifi. We will stop for lunch (not included) en route, as well as a brief stop at the Tarcoles River to see the largest crocodiles in Costa Rica.

Upon arrival at the coast, board a private boat that will transport us to Drake Bay. In Drake Bay, we’ll meet the drivers who will be driving us through the jungle to our boutique oceanside accommodations.

Gather for sunset cocktails and snacks before a family-style gourmet dinner under the stars.

After our delicious breakfast, get ready for an exciting day exploring the Corcovado National Park – cited by National Geographic as “one of the most biologically intense places on earth” and our guided tour of the park will be sure to prove them right.

Corcovado National Park, the largest and most important of the parks on the Osa Peninsula, protects one of the most significant stands of virgin rainforest in Central America. Being in Corcovado can be an overwhelming experience; it’s one of the few places left on earth where humans are a minority. You’ll be shocked by the amount of life that exists and the complex relationships between all living creatures on the Osa Peninsula. If you’re looking to get closer to nature, Corcovado National Park is the place to be. The Park has four ranger stations, Los Patos, Sirena, San Pedrillo, and La Llorona. You can enter Corcovado National Park from Drake Bay at the Sirena or San Pedrillo Ranger Station, both situated north along the Osa Peninsula coastline.

Return in the early afternoon with ample time to relax and unwind before sunset snacks at the clubhouse, followed by another delicious family-style dinner surrounded by inspiring souls.

After breakfast, enjoy an entire day of absolute relaxation and disconnect. Schedule a massage, join us for a morning meditation on the beach, and spend time in the waves, in the shade, or in the sun.

The day is yours to enjoy it however suits you best.

In the afternoon, join a meaningful conversation with directors from the Osa Foundation, before gathering for another fabulous family-style dinner under the stars.

After breakfast, prepare for an exciting visit to Caño Island Biological Marine Reserve, 12 nautical miles or 20 km offshore from Drake Bay. The beauty of Isla del Caño is not found on its land but underwater. This island’s pristine waters are some of the bluest in the country and are home to a spectacular variety of stunning marine flora and fauna, as well as some gorgeous coral reefs. Isla del Caño Biological Reserve is also home to various fish, whales, and sharks. The complete 2 km perimeter of the Island is protected from commercial fishing and any other type of harvesting. With fantastic underwater visibility, one may see sea turtles, dolphins, rays, barracudas, and white-tip sharks.

Isla del Caño is an island of considerable geographical and archeological importance. This 300-hectare piece of land was formerly a cemetery or burial ground dating back to the pre-Columbian era of the Diquis tribal people. The Costa Rican Park service offers one small beach for visitors. There is a ranger station house, restrooms, a picnic area, and shade trees. This full-day tour includes a picnic lunch, transportation to and from the Island, snorkeling equipment, and a guide.

Return in the early afternoon with ample time to relax and unwind before sunset snacks at the clubhouse, followed by our last family-style dinner in the jungle.

Join us in sharing our gratitude over breakfast before catching our ride, boat, and bus (lunch en route, not included) back to the region of San José and the airport.

We recommend that you arrange flights for after 5:00 pm on this final day.

If you require a hotel near the airport for a flight the following day, we will be happy to help!

Please Note: Optional tours are not included, but we will be happy to arrange anything you desire and provide costs.

Whales & Dolphins

Drake Bay is positioned in one of the most biologically diverse ocean ecosystems in the world and is fortunate to host two migrations of humpback whales. Year-round, the bottlenose, rough tooth, and spotted dolphins can be observed. Whale sharks, false-killer, and pilot whales are also known to frequent these waters.

Mangrove Tour

Explore the most extensive protected mangrove area in Central America. This boat trip adventures into countless channels along the Sierpe river, crisscrossing this vitally important ecosystem. Avid wildlife watchers can expect to see caimans, crocodiles, monkeys, river turtles, and coatis. This trip is also a birder’s delight; expect to see the yellow mangrove warbler, the common potoo, and the frigate bird, to name a few.

Scuba Diving

Experience world-class diving at the Caño Island Biological Reserve. Highlights of this area’s dive locations are the manta and Mobula rays, the abundant population of white tip reef sharks, Ridley and Hawksbill turtles, barracuda, and giant schools of pelagic fish. Visibility often exceeds 80 ft, and temperatures range from the upper 70’s to the low 80’s.

Night Hike

Explore the fascinating world of tropical insects and arachnids with Tracie, “The Bug Lady,” on this one-of-a-kind adventure trek. Tracie will transport you to a realm where reality rivals science fiction. Guests will learn how to harvest silk from one of Central America’s largest spiders, how toxic toads were employed in mind control studies,  and why the US military enlisted cockroaches in the Vietnam War.


We recommend packing lightweight clothing, sandals that can get wet, hiking boots and/or good walking shoes, sunscreen, a flashlight or headlamp, and a hat. Dinner attire is casual. There are very few biting bugs, however, if you are a person who is bothered by insects, you should bring insect repellent.


Except for our first night near the airport, all meals on the Osa Peninsula are served family-style in a beautiful clubhouse. Menus consist of fresh fish, shrimp, chicken, and beef. Vegetarian meals are always available upon request. You will also enjoy continental and a la carte breakfast options, healthy lunches, an afternoon snack, and 4-course dinners. All meals are included with lodging. Drinks are not included.


Due to a fragile ecosystem, the entire Osa Peninsula is dedicated to minimizing plastic waste, so please bring a refillable water bottle to use throughout your trip. The lodge offers a reverse osmosis purification water system and UV light to ensure guests have the purest water.


To maximize your experience in this tropical paradise, there is no phone or internet in guest rooms on the Osa Peninsula. Internet is available from the clubhouse at the lodge but keep in mind that due to the remote location, it is not always reliable.


The lodge is fortunate to be graced with prevailing westerly winds, cooling the lodge and allowing for ideal sleeping conditions. All rooms and ranchos come with ceiling fans. They have recently added air conditioning to several rooms but find most guests still prefer to fall asleep with the windows open, listening to the sounds of the ocean.


The lodge is located on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You will be a short walk from secluded beaches, tropical rainforest, and Agujitas River. Relax in your hammock, read a book poolside, explore the grounds, and participate in daily activities and tours.


The 10-meter swimming pool is the perfect way to cool off after a long hike or spend time relaxing and watching the sunset.


Pamper yourself with a relaxing massage in the comfort of your room. Certified massage therapists offer Deep Tissue and Swedish massages. Choose from 60 or 90 min massages.


While tipping is a common practice in the tourism industry, it is not expected but, of course, is always appreciated. There is no need to bring cash to tip housekeepers, luggage handlers, boat handlers, etc. If you choose to tip lodge staff, they recommend you wait until the end of your trip. The lodge has a tip pool that gets divided among all employees.

All other gratuities for drivers and guides are included in your journey cost.
