The Osa Peninsula and the South Pacific Sights

Oro Verde Private Nature Reserve

Updated 04/24/2014

Fodor's Review

You'll find excellent bird-watching and hiking in this nature preserve, uphill from the Costanera. Family run, this property has well groomed trails through a majestic, primary forest reserve. Early-morning, three-hour birding tours ($30) end with a hearty home-cooked breakfast. There are also three- to four-hour morning horseback tours to a waterfall, including lunch ($35).
