Excellent trip report, it sound like you had a great trip. I love the Osa Peninsula but like you said isnt for everybody. Great pictures. Thank you for sharing your vacation with us. NATUREGUIDE

Sounds like an amazing trip! Wonderful pics too. What type of camera do you use? Osa is one of my favorite areas as well. Love the remoteness and wildlife, can't beat it!

Travel:

I use a Canon Digital Rebel XTi (DSLR). Love it. I mostly use a Tamron 28-300mm lens that it multipurpose and works well on trips where I dont want to lug around a lot of stuff.......

The trip was amazing, I wish I was there right now, again!

Your trip sounds awesome. We are currently planning a trip to Drake Bay next May (did Puerto Jiminez this past June). Can't wait to get back to the Osa!!

Wow! Loved your pictures. They look professional. We're going to the Osa next spring and your pictures get me so excited about the trip! You must have a great telephoto lens because your photos of the crocodiles were so close. Thanks for sharing.
