Questions on Osa Peninsula & Caribbean Beaches

Jump to last reply

Im planning my first trip to Costa Rica, Dec 2-Jan5; 14 days on the ground after overnight recovery.
1) We want to spend 3 days on Osa Peninsula and debating between Drake Bay (Aguila de Osa, Villas Alturas, Drake Bay Wilderness Lodge) and Puerto Jimmenez (Bosque del Cabo, Agua Dulce Lodge). We want beach time, animal viewing experiences/hikes, excellent food, peaceful setting. We don't necessarily need an all inclusive, we can pick up tours on our own.
Which area do you recommend and why? Which hotels?
2) We are considering staying at a southern beach on the Caribbean side after visiting
Tortuguera (any recommendations between Tortuga and Manatus Lodges). Are the beaches in Pto Viego and south clean? lodgings safe (heard about theft)? Humidity bearable in December? worth the effort to get there?
Its a hassle to rent a car in Guapilas,where the Tortuguera lodges can drop you, rent a car and then drive southwest to Cahuita and beaches). But it might be worth it???
Thank you in advance for your help.
