Packing for your trip to the Osa Peninsula

The Osa is a remote and wild place, but when it comes down to it, you really don’t need to bring much. The temps run between 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit, so there’s no need for warm/bulky clothing. If you’re flying to Puerto Jimenez on either Sansa or Nature Air, check their weight limits to make sure […]

Surf, Rain, and Mangos on the Osa Peninsula!

May through August is the kick off to rainy season here on the Osa.  If you were to name this season, I guess you could call it Fall since the heavy rains of September through November follow, and are referred to as invierno (winter).  Daily rain showers cool the earth and the crispy brown jungle comes back […]
