Whether you’re on a boat or a board, the bright and crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Papagayo must be seen up close. In this quiet corner of the country you’ll find enchanting coves and inlets where you can discover the local marine life and soak up the sun all day long.

The beating heart of Costa Rica’s biodiversity is found in the Osa Peninsula, described by National Geographic Magazine as “one of the most biologically intense places on Earth”. Rare species, endangered environments, and once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experiences will be an unmissable part of your journey to this unique and special place.
Practice yoga with world class instructors by day and enjoy fusion cuisine at some of Costa Rica’s best restaurants by night in Santa Teresa, a small beach town which has become the epicentre of the chic luxury eco-tourism in the Nicoya Peninsula. As well as high end hospitality and enriching activities, this chic getaway also offers enthralling nature hikes and an impeccable wildlife reserve.
In the area of Bijagua you can venture into the Tenorio Volcano National Park where the panoramic views across the verdant valleys of the volcanic mountain range are simply spectacular. Untouched rainforests are home to waterfalls and hot springs as well as pumas, tapirs and hundred more species of flora and fauna.
From the port of Puntarenas, start your most memorable diving adventure on a liveaboard vessel to the remote Cocos Island, an uninhabited National Park that draws advanced divers from around the world. See spectacular seamounts and swim with hammerhead sharks and manta rays as you explore the island’s dive sites.
