Osa Adventure Center

Osa Adventure Center promotes the best of the Osa Peninsula; Corcovado National Park, Cabo Matapalo, Drake Bay, Rio Tigre, Rio Nuevo, the pristine Golfo Dulce, and the wide-open Pacific Ocean. We hope you find our services convenient, informative, and useful. We recommend that you read this page in its entirety as it includes valuable information for visitors.

Osa Adventure Center is a local tour operator located at "Chosa Manglar Nature Retreat" on Airport Road, 150 meters west of the Puerto Jimenez airport. We offer a variety of OSA Peninsula adventures, activities, tours, and transportation options that can be reserved and paid for online using a credit card. We offer this service because it's rare for local tour operators to accept credit cards in person or when accepting reservations online, instead, they usually want a deposit sent by international wire transfer at the time of making a reservation and the balance paid in cash upon arrival.

To help guests and visitors better plan a visit to Costa Rica, we offer reservations and payments online with a credit card or via Domestic or International Bank Wire Transfer. It might be possible to find cheaper options if you wait until you arrive in town but please consider that your excursion may not be possible on the day you wish. Our service is for people who wish to guarantee a visit to the park on a specific date and are not willing to wait until the last minute in the hopes of finding space. We DO NOT compete solely on price, but instead offer a guaranteed product, with individualized service on a guaranteed date for a guaranteed price which can also be paid with a credit card. We leave it up to individual visitors to decide what better suits their risk aversion, payment method, and budget.

Our website uses a cloud-based Property Management System (PMS) that is designed for accommodation rentals, but it has been tweaked to handle tours and activities that continue to grow, so if you would like to try something which is not listed, just ask about it and we will respond as soon as we have information on your requested activity.

When making a reservation request select the check-in date as the date you want to do or start your activity, and then just select the following date to complete a request as if you were making a one-night hotel reservation. Make sure to include the number of people who want to do the activity as all prices are calculated using this number. We will quickly respond to your reservation request by email.

Starting October 2022, Corcovado National Park reservations require substantial lead time, primarily because the park office uses a reservation system that requires a park employee to first, confirm a reservation request by email, and second, issue a confirmation once it has been paid for at a local bank. Note that ALL park entrance fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. All park reservations will require each visitor's full name, country of passport, and passport number. This information can be shared with us at the time of your reservation request in the comment section or later when you respond to our follow-up email.

Note that park employees DO NOT work after 3 pm, nor do they work on weekends or holidays, so we suggest you try and book at least 5 days in advance, but more if possible. Corcovado National Park fills up quickly during the summer months, so DO NOT expect to get into the park one day for the next starting October 2022, as it may be virtually impossible under many circumstances. Once again, PLEASE PLAN AHEAD and DO NOT wait until the last minute.

Many adventures, tours, and activities DO NOT include terrestrial transportation because there are many ways to get where you want to go, for example, you may have a 4x4 vehicle with good clearance. If you don't have a 4x4 vehicle, understand that a 4x4 is required to get to Carate and Corcovado National Park and many car rental companies DO NOT allow you to cross rivers of which there are a few, so keep this in mind before deciding if transportation is required. If transportation is required, please choose an option with transportation included. If you forget, no worries, you can always request transportation upon arrival at the property, but it may be more costly.

We publish a general cancellation policy from a built-in template because it is required by the software, but we hereby advise all visitors to the website, that it is overridden by the individual cancellation policy for each activity, adventure, tour, or service which can be found in their respective descriptions by clicking more info for any activity or service. Note that individual cancellation policies replace the general cancellation policy and are NOT flexible, no matter what the situation might be, and they will be applied as stated in the policy. We suggest that travelers purchase travel insurance if they would like to be compensated by a third party for cancellations made outside of the cancellation policy. Government taxes of 13% are applied to all activities, tours, adventures, and services.

Liability Insurance is NOT provided by Osa Adventure Center or its affiliates, tour and activity providers, or service providers. By proceeding to make a reservation request on the website you acknowledge that you are personally responsible for yourself and any accompanying minors in all activities and services in which you participate. You may be required to sign a waiver before participating in any activity or service contracted.

Finally, if you're the owner or provider of an adventure, tour, activity, or service on the OSA Peninsula and wish to present it online, just send us a message from our contact page, or visit us personally to introduce yourself and your products. We're happy to display your adventures, activities, tours, and transportation services online at the Osa Adventure Center.

Pura Vida,

Team Osa Adventure Center.
