There’s No Place Like the Osa Peninsula
Osa Peninsula real estate Costa Rica is thriving because there’s so much to do and see here. For starters, the region is 700 square miles of rich biological diversity, declared “the most biologically intense place on earth” by National Geographic. Moreover, according to Osa Conservation, the Osa Peninsula is home to approximately 2.5 percent of the Earth’s biodiversity– “while covering less than a thousandth of a percent of its total surface area – truly earning its title as the most biologically intense place” on the planet.
There’s plenty to appreciate about the Osa, from pristine rainforests and beaches to rare and exotic wildlife. Golfo Dulce (the “sweet gulf”) features the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve, home to hundred-foot-tall trees, as well as many native animals and birds. And just like many areas in Costa Rica, Golfito real estate is getting plenty of attention.
Just a stone’s throw from the Osa is Corcovado National Park, which boasts the only tropical primary lowland rainforest in the world, according to GoVisitCostaRica.com. Corcovado National Park is also ideal for visitors who want to see as much wildlife as they can while in Costa Rica: It’s literally a 100,000-acre haven for nearly 150 species of mammals, more than 400 species of birds, 100-plus species of reptiles and amphibians, almost 50 species of sea life, includingfish and sea turtles, and at least 500 types of trees.
The nearby small town of Puerto Jimenez is easily accessible for those who enjoy hiking, dolphin watching and an active nightlife. With so much to see and do in this part of the country, Puerto Jimenez real estate is thriving in Costa Rica.
To the south of Puerto Jimenez, you’ll find the beach community of Cabo Matapalo.
The area is heavily forested and the beaches are virtually secluded, so much so that the only ones who come here to enjoy great surfing are the ones “in the know.” Drake Bay, to the north of the Osa Peninsula, is more secluded and perfect for visitors who want to truly immerse themselves in nature.
Is it possible to fall in love with such a place? Based on my experience, the answer is a resounding “Yes!”
