There, it is possible to penetrate deep into the purest and wildest nature in Central America. In order to do that, you should visit both the Dúrika Biological Reserve and the one in Cano Island. Nevertheless, the more surprising green areas are undoubtedly the Corcovado National Park, the Marino Ballena National Park and the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetland, being all of them places brimming with animal and plant life.

The Osa and Golfito cantons are the perfect starting points to begin these trips, as well as Ciudad Cortés, Ciudad Neily, San Vito (where the main entrance to the important La Amistad Biosphere Reserve is located) and Palmar. The latter hides one of the most enigmatic treasures in Costa Rica: the pre-Columbian stone spheres. And you should not forget that each of these cities possesses a special charming and ambiance which will make your stay unforgettable.

Moreover, in this coastal area of Southern Costa Rica, there are plenty of incredible and beautiful beaches in whose crystal-clear waters you dip in and practice multiple water sports, such as surf, recreational fishing or snorkeling. Some of these beaches are Playa Uvita Beach, Playa Llorona Beach, Playa Ventanas Beach, Playa Blanca Beach and Playa Sirena Beach, among others.
