Trip Report Some Like it Hot: Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica Trip Report

Jump to last reply

My family (me, husband and daughters ages 11 and 15) went to the Osa Peninsula for about 8 days in early April. I wrote my trip report on another forum where I can insert photos and links to videos into the middle of it. Thanks to everyone who helped me with questions! One question I had asked before going was about shoes to wear in Corcovado - we had both Keens and either running shoes or hiking shoes and all were fine. We didn't end up loving the Keens as little rocks would get in them and in retrospect, I think you could really do the boat entries and exits barefoot if you wanted to only have one pair of shoes. Or next time I might use more open water sandals like my Chacos.

I really debated before going whether the hassle of overnighting at Corcovado was worth it as we were also going to Bosque del Cabo and many people say you can see almost the same wildlife at BdC. For us, yes, a thousand times! At Corcovado we saw an anteater!! And 6 different tapirs - we saw one pair on one walk, a different pair on a second walk and a different pair on a third walk - last one being a mother and baby - priceless! Really enjoyed BdC but definitely saw more in our time at Corcovado. Really glad we did both - and the dolphin tour with Shawn Larkin which was AMAZING out of Drake Bay. And our guide for Corcovado, Nito from Surcos Tours, was oustanding! Highly recommend him.

Here's the link to my report. Feel free to ask me any questions after reading it.
