Every adventure your heart desires in the Osa Peninsula area. Try our zipline canopy tour & tarzan swing if you aren't afraid of heights. Spend a lazy day floating down a local river or an adrenalin filled day whitewater rafting on one of the three great local rivers. If the ocean is your thing we offer whale and dolphin tours during the season, snorkeling out at Cano Island, and ocean & river sport fishing that will blow you away. If hiking is more your speed we have many day and nighttime hikes to choose from including tours of Corcovado National Park where you'll visit one of the most bio-diverse places on the planet. If you like the beach you might want to try kayaking in Marino Ballena National Park. If you are into birding our 750 acre property is a gold mine with many species having been sighted. We also have horseback riding tours and ATV tours that will get you off the beaten path.

We stopped into the Wildlife Sanctuary after doing the Osa Mountain Zip lining. This little animal sanctuary was far more than I had expected! The owner is very knowledgeable, and has a special relationship with each and every one of his rescues. You can expect to see Parrots, Monkeys, and other little creatures including; squirrels, porcupines, ant eaters, an owl,... More

Definitely make this addition to your zip line tour (though you can simply pay cash directly to the sanctuary when you get there if you prefer). Amazing animal encounters and a group that is doing really great work. A definite highlight of our trip.

We waited to zip line in Costa Rica for a reason...although it is now available everywhere...this is still one of the best places to zip through the canopy. The course here at Osa mountian village did not dissapoint, it had a great layout and the guides were fantastic. We had a great time...the Tarzan swing at the end is a... More

This place is SUCH a gem, and a must-do if you're an animal lover. I was a teeny bit weary at first because of my aversion to zoo's and animal treatment, but this place is nothing like that. It's basically a rehab sanctuary for animals who've been abandoned, orphaned, injured, disabled, etc. The animals are released back into the wild... More

Went to see all the animals at the OSA mountain wild animal sanctuary, and was the highlight of our trip. Was well worth the drive up the mountain.

I am ready to buy some property and fly like Superman everyday. Well, right after I get off the boat from fishing and spear fishing but before I chill in the pool with Imperials. :-) I will be back to pick out the property soon. Thanks for a great time

I couldn't believe what I could do with the adrenaline pumping! Head first down a rappel line to the jungle floor, walking on creaking planks with only one wire to hang onto, zipping through the jungle canopy, Tarzan swing. VCard everything was a rush and yhe guides seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. Great fun!
