Overview
For active adventurers keen to take on the challenge, this trek will bring you across the wilderness and mountains where the branches of tropical trees hang all around like cobwebs. This almost unknown landmass is part of the Osa Conservation Area, where you hope to catch a glimpse of rare wildlife and birdlife. Its habitats are elusive species of birds, mammals and reptiles. The park is largely untapped and is home to a great variety of exceptional trees and plant communities. Be awestruck with the inspiring mountain scenery in a thrilling and spectacular walk. The untamed trails of the dense evergreen and unaltered forest of Piedras Blancas National Park make this place a prime location for jungle trekking.

Nice hike, arduous at times but very rewarding. The guide was very knowledgeable about the ecology of the area. Be prepared to pay extra for the boat ride back to Golfito. Guess I missed that one when I booked it.
