Experience Nature in a Stunning Location.
Guests delight in the nearby Corcovado National Park and the Cano Island Marine Reserve. Corcovado contains some of the last remaining old-growth rainforest in Central America, making it a beacon of hope to environmentalists and a fascinating glimpse into nature for everyone else! The animal life variety is astounding, and birdwatchers will have the time of their lives when exploring nearby – after all, the area is known to be home to over 350 different bird species. Very lucky guests might even have the chance to spot some of the endangered deep-forest creatures that once roamed throughout the country, such as the Baird’s Tapir or the shy, yet fascinating Central American squirrel monkey.
Surrounded by colorful coral reefs and amazingly clear water, Cano Island is one of the best snorkeling and scuba diving areas in the country. Dolphins, sea turtles, whales, and even manta rays pass by the islands on their migrations, making it perfect for wildlife-watching tours via boat. Both of these areas attract many guests a year, ranging from 20-somethings seeking some fun and kids yearning to spend the afternoon ziplining to naturalists and scientists eager for the opportunity to investigate this biodiversity hot spot.
The Osa Peninsula is more than just a destination – in an increasingly urban world, Aguila de Osa offers the opportunity to experience a world of adventure and nature that simply can’t be found anywhere else! Hiking, bird-watching, fishing, diving, snorkeling, kayaking, mountain biking, zip lining, whale and dolphin watching and horseback riding are all offered from this magnificent location – and it’ll take more than one visit to see everything.
Aguila de Osa Inn is a dedicated ecolodge, determined to exist as sustainably as possible. By working with their local community, Aguila de Osa is preserving the environment for future generations. Recyclables are collected and the resulting money is donated to make repairs and improvements in schools. All water comes from the Inn’s own well. Food waste is composted and used on the hotel’s organic garden. The Inn is even involved in local children’s education, taking donations and selling notecards to help the community with hiring a teacher.
