THE PENINSULA DE OSA
Reaches out into the Pacific Ocean from southwestern Costa Rica and is described by National Geographic as "the most biologically intense place on earth". Archaeologists and Ethno-Historians have yet to unravel the mysterious past of this region.

The Aguila de Osa Inn is located on Drake Bay in the Osa Peninsula, adjacent to Corcovado National Park and Caño Island Biological Reserve. The Aguila de Osa Inn offers privacy and seclusion in a setting where adventure tourists will experience the Osa in its entirety.

FOOD AND LODGING
EXCITING DINING is an Aguila de Osa Inn trademark. Our distinctive cuisine is created with a uniquely tropical flair. Fresh seafood, pasta, tasty vegetables, and luscious tropical fruit, prepared with simplicity and originality are served in a comfortable, expansive atmosphere.

Our guestrooms feature hardwood floors, ceiling fans and private, tiled bathrooms. The cabins are situated on a bluff overlooking magnificent Drake Bay and the Pacific Coast.

JUNGLE HIKES
WALK INTO A WORLD of immense bio-diversity right on your doorstep. Trails cross orchid draped streams and wind through virgin jungle, home to a vast array of exotic birds and mammals. Howler and White-faced monkeys bound through the canopy. The Scarlet Macaw, Toucan, and Tanager are just three examples of the 300 species of birds indigenous to the region.

Guided tours of Corcovado National Park and Caño Island Biological Reserve allow you to further explore the magnificence of this rainforest frontier to its fullest.

CAÑO ISLAND TOUR
Snorkelers will love the accessibility of schooling reef fish right off shore. Star fish, conches, turtles, moray eels, octopuses and parrot fish make up a small part of the kaleidescope of underwater tropical life close enough to touch.

The day is broken up with a picnic lunch on the beach while divers and snorkelers join to share their watery adventures. Well-marked trails
entice some guests to hike to ancient indigenous burial sites on the island, while others prefer to relax in the shade of almond trees. For the truly energetic, there's a volleyball net and ball awaiting any challengers.

SCUBA DIVING
CAÑO ISLAND and selected OSA PENINSULA coastal sites provide "unequaled parades of pelagic fish" (Skin Diver Magazine): clouds of fish literally block the sun's rays in the clear waters as divers penetrate the fish schools. Brightly colored tropical fish, snapper, tuna, grouper, mackerel, jack, shark, trigger fish, barracuda (typically in schools), manta rays, eels, porcupine fish, sea urchins, octopus, lobster, sponges, sea cucumbers, and other marine species are seen.

There are 15 or more types of stony coral species as well as the attendant coral eaters (starfish, mollusks, and hermit crabs). The terrain varies widely and includes 20' reefs, 50' underwater pinnacles, canyons, walls and caves. Visibility is good to excellent all year round; often marine life can be viewed 70' below the surface. Surface sightings include porpoises, Olive Ridley sea turtles, whale sharks, sea snakes and humpback whales.

Caño Island and the Osa Peninsula coast are a part of a mammoth (Rio Sierpe, Rio Terraba, Caño Island) marine ecosystem. More than one hundred thousand acres of mangrove wetlands and one thousand miles of fresh and salt water rivers, estuaries and tributaries interact with the Pacific ocean through tides which provide for an incredible abundance of marine life. This area of the Pacific is south of the trade winds and therefore characterized by gentle swells and breezes.

GETTING TO AGUILA DE OSA

Part of the charm of Aguila de Osa is that it can only be reached by boat or sea plane. The most common way of arriving is by taking a 45 minute scheduled Travelair flight from San José to Palmar Sur, a short taxi ride to Sierpe and by boat to the Inn. This final leg of your journey consists of a 25 mile boat ride, 21 miles along Rio Sierpe, viewing the mangrove forest, and an additional 4 miles on the beautiful Pacific. During the boat ride you will discover the Sierpe-Terraba Mangrove Reserve, the largest in Costa Rica, with 54,000 acres. Often you will see White Faced Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Caymens, and a large variety of birds and other wildlife.

"I love to go to Aguila de Osa and we go fishing And we saw dolphins And there came a little crocodile and we chased it. There was a string and we swung from it. We went to a little river and through a little waterfall. It's a wonderful world.
