National Geographic Magazine declared the Osa Peninsula one of the most biologically intense places in the whole world. It has also become famous for being an eco-tourism destination, since companies and business owner are striving to kep it as untouched as possible. It is home to many of the country's endangered species of animals.

 
How to get there

From this crossroad the west branch will take you to Drake (30 km), and the south branch will take you to La Palma (5 km) and Puerto Jimenez (40 km past La Palma).
