How to Get to Cabinas Jimenez

The Osa is the southernmost peninsula of Costa Rica. It is bordered on the east by the pristine Golfo Dulce and the west by the Pacific Ocean. This peninsula is more remote and less developed than any other part of Costa Rica and is known as the country’s wildest and most spectacular region.

Tourists are just now beginning to discover this little known lush-tropical paradise of unparalleled wildlife, miles of deserted beaches and virgin forests. The largest trees in Costa Rica are found here! The Osa Peninsula is absolutely Costa Rica’s best kept secret.
