Puntarenas and the Mid-Pacific region of Costa Rica are home to an extraordinary coastline as well as several protected wilderness areas. The most popular attraction here is Manuel Antonio National Park with its beautiful beaches and popular hotel areas, many of which are less than two hours from San José, allowing for easy access. After spending the day admiring nature, visit Jaco Beach to enjoy its legendary party atmosphere. Surrounded by lush, tropical rainforest and inviting soft-sand beaches, visitors enjoy mangrove and ocean kayaking, horseback riding, world-class sport-fishing, whitewater rafting and excursions to the nearby butterfly and aquatic tropical gardens.
The southern-most peninsula in Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula, is a secluded nature wonderland, providing a home to many of the country's rare and endangered species including the Puma, Jaguar, Harpy Eagle and Scarlet Macaw. With a hot, tropical climate throughout the year, the South Puntarenas region boasts one of the most lush and dense tracts of forest in the country and the single largest expanse of low-land tropical rainforest in Central America, as well as one of the tallest rainforests in the world. The Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula is a nature lover's heaven because of its isolation and remoteness from the rest of Costa Rica. An eco-tourism hotspot with pristine rainforests, outstanding ecologdes and rugged natural beauty, visitors will enjoy Osa Peninsula as one of the most bio-diverse regions on the planet.
