Dive into the delights of Corcovado National Park
Scenic Beauty, Epic Wildlife
The Most Biologically Intense Place on Earth
Tucked into Costa Rica’s southwestern corner, the Osa Peninsula – home to both El Remanso and famed Corcovado National Park – was once an inaccessible Pacific island that evolved in total isolation. While it fused with the mainland approximately two million years ago, our wild peninsula is still Costa Rica’s most uncharted territory, swathed in primary and secondary rainforest, ringed in deserted beach, and teeming with life.
National Geographic’s “most biologically intense place on Earth,” Corcovado National Park is home to an astounding 13 ecosystems and 2.5% of all biodiversity in the world. In wildlife-watching terms, Corcovado (and the Osa Peninsula, at large) houses nearly all of Costa Rica’s 240+ mammal species and more than our fair share of the country’s birds, reptiles, and other animal life.
The Osa Peninsula and Corcovado National Park outstrip hyperbole and breathe life into postcard-perfection. Here, scarlet macaws and rainbow-billed toucans soar free. Jaguars roam beaches and pumas pace the forest floor.
Humpback whales breach our bays and olive ridley turtles nest our beaches. Baird’s tapir stroll past and tiny two-pound squirrel monkeys swing through the trees. Corcovado is the kind of place that exceeds all expectations.
When you stay at El Remanso – wild and diverse, in its own right – you don’t have to visit Corcovado National Park to spot most of Corcovado’s most iconic flora and fauna. But, if you want to tick this singular park off your bucket list, we offer 1-Day Guided Tours into the heart of one of the world’s most biodiverse destinations.
