Covered by pristine primary lowland tropical rainforest, the Osa Peninsula is renowned for its biodiversity & endemic wildlife.

Located on the Osa Peninsula on Costa Rica's far south Pacific coast, Corcovado is Costa Rica's largest National Park and one of its most isolated and remote. Access is only by boat or light plane, which makes getting there an adventure in itself. Covered by pristine primary lowland tropical rainforest, Corcovado is renowned for its biodiversity and the number of wildlife species that can be found nowhere else in Costa Rica.

Its size means that it can support significant populations of tapir, crocodile and caiman, and big cats such as jaguar, ocelot, margay and puma. It is also the only place in Costa Rica which is home to all four species of monkeys: howler monkeys, white-faced capuchin monkeys, spider monkeys and squirrel monkeys. Many species of lizard and several varieties of venomous snakes, such at the fer-de-lance, can be found in the park. Corcovado has been described by National Geographic as 'the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity', and wildlife sightings are common for visitors.
