South Pacific Coast

The south Pacific Coast and particularly the Osa Peninsula is known for its pristine, untouched nature. The Corcovado National Park covers half of the peninsular and is mainly primary rainforest with more than 400 bird species and 6 big cat species. The coastline is also pristine with rewarding snorkelling and diving. Humpback whales can usually be seen breeding and with their young in August and September and migrating in the latter months to December.

Some say that the original Eco-lodge was born on the Osa Peninsular. Unbeknown to their creators, the owners of Lapa Rios Lodge pioneered sustainable tourism by purchasing 1,000 acres of rainforest in 1990 to create a protected reserve. Lapa Rios has gone from strength to strength and their model has been followed not only in Osa but worldwide.

A visit to Costa Rica is not complete without a stay at one of the remote pristine regions to fully immerse oneself in the beauty of the natural world and the Osa Peninsular and south Pacific Coast is the perfect place to re-connect with nature.

Similar to the Caribbean the only months to avoid are September and October which are the height of the wet season. Very wet days and overcast.

November to March are considered dry, sunny and warm to hot, can be humid and always expect a chance of rain. Being close to the equator sunset is always early evening with temperatures decreasing to more comfortable levels.

April to August is called the Green Season with more chance of rain but in shorter bursts with still lovely sunny days and high temperatures.
