The Southern Pacific Coast in the soutwest corner of Costa Rica stretches from Dominical to the Osa Peninsula and is one of the world’s most biologically rich regions. Largely undeveloped, its forests and beaches in the national parks remain almost unchanged since humans first arrived. Possessing an outstanding floral and faunal assemblage, it is the only region in Costa Rica where all four of the nation’s monkey species occur together, sizeable flocks of colorful scarlet macaws fly freely over the tree tops near the coast, and a number of shy jaguars (rarely seen) secretly move through the dark depths of ancient wilderness forests on their nocturnal hunts. The foremost destination for naturalists wishing to visit a premier rainforest in the area is the 100,000 acre Corcovado National Park. Off the coast this region also hosts seasonal migrations of whales and dolphins. Hiking, bird watching, diving, deep sea fishing, whale watching, and surfing are just a few of the many ways visitors can enjoy the outstanding marvels of nature this destination offers.
