About Osa Conservation
Experience Costa Rica like never before! The wild and pristine Osa Peninsula harbors 2.5% of the world's biodiversity and has been named the most biologically intense place on Earth by National Geographic. Osa Conservation offers visitors the chance to learn about and participate in ongoing conservation projects that protect the Osa's stunning wildlife and wild places. Stay with us at our field stations, surrounded by rainforest and just a short walk to the beach, and discover our sea turtle monitoring program, our working demonstration farm, and so much more!

Tours and Tickets by Osa Conservation
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.

Too much to say. Stay at the Piro BioStaion walk the trails, listen to the jungle, and be overwhelmed. The crew at the station, farm, and on-hand researchers are interactive, friendly, and enjoy your participation. Walk under the stars to find sea turtles nesting, return later
