To visit the Osa Peninsula is to decide to savor the glorious splendor of mother nature at her very finest. The Osa Peninsula's main claim to fame is Corcovado National Park and the "Golfo Dulce" or "Sweet Gulf" as it is known in english. The Osa is home to some of the most spectacular butterflies and birds in Central America, four species of monkey, coatis, kinkajous, ocelots, jaguars, toucans, scarlet macaws, parrots, whales, whale sharks, turtles, sharks and dolphins to name but just a few of the many inhabitants that you might encounter when visiting the pristine Osa Peninsula. The Costa Rican saying of "Pura Vida" or "Pure Life" nicely sums up what awaits you in this wonderful location.
The beautiful woman in the photo above was born in the tropics. I was fortunate to escape the "great white north" while still an adventurous & ambitious 28 year old. We've spent two decades acquiring properties in Costa Rica & Panama, the kind of tropical escapes one can only dream about. All properties are kid friendly primarily because our children grew up on them. We can't enjoy all the properties, all the time, so we're sharing them. Each property is a tropical escape. All photos of animals were taken on our properties. The flora & fauna are extraordinary and the art of communion is fraught with traps, but please come visit, breathe deep, relax & comune with mother nature.
The Azuero Peninsula is home to Cerro Hoya National Park and is surrounded by islands with white-sand beaches and soft rolling hills. It's a great home base for world class surfing, diving and sport fishing. It's surrounded by the Pacific Ocean in the south; the Pacific and Gulf of Montijo to the west and by the Gulf of Panama in the east. Countryside life in the Azuero Peninsula is largely unchanged since the turn of the century. Azuero is famous for religious festivals dating back to Spanish colonial times. Many towns have 17th and 18th century churches. It is also home to Panama's best Carnival celebration in Las Tablas where thousands gather for this colorful and exhilarating event.
