Today we arrived to the beautiful beach of Playa Blanca and look upon the majestic scenery of this Peninsula. The Colossal National Park of Corcovado is highly protected by the surrounding towns.

We take great pride on pioneering activities with these communities that have transformed their lifestyles to bolster local conservation. They are so welcoming and take great pride in their model of sustainable tourism that includes gold panning, the farming of sugar cane, hearts of palm, chocolate production, and guided hikes into the rainforest.

These are families that share an important role in history and the future of this beautiful place: Our visit here did much to lend guests the understanding of the Osa peninsula and its people.
