Jungle activities

The Osa Peninsula is considered to be the most preserved and fascinating region of Costa Rica. It has been presented by National Geographic as “The most intense biologically place on earth” with more than 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity. It is made up mainly of the largest tropical rainforest on the Pacific coast. It is home to many endemic and/or endangered plant and animal species such as Baird’s tapir, jaguar, puma, ocelot… and half of the birds visible in Costa Rica. You can discover the rainforest and its natural richness by visiting the Corcovado National Park but also by walking the trails of private reserves (Osa Conservation, Bollita…). They are more accessible. The peninsula also hides many secrets (gold miners), pre-Colombian vestiges…)

your personalized WALK with Manuel

Manuel was born in the heart of the Osa Peninsula in the family finca of Piro. Miguel, his father revealed all the secrets of the rainforest to him. The forest was his playground. Then an American foundation bought a large part of the property. Scientists moved in close to the family home. With his knowledge, he was their guide… They also taught him a lot about the natural treasures of his native land. Then he became himself the person in charge of the foundation’s turtle protection program.

Very early on, he became interested in wildlife photography. He became the foundation’s photographer and presented his work in solo exhibitions in the United States.
