Jungles, Rainforest, Hikes, Dolphins… we’ve got it.
Iguana Lodge is exquisite, however, exploring the Osa is not to be missed.
Here on the Osa there is something for everyone: high impact, low impact, wild and crazy, a comfortable stroll, swinging through trees, running for your life from wild peccaries – there are many ways to experience the Osa Peninsula.
When you come to the Osa, you definitely want to hike the rain forest (lots of options here). The fauna and flora can literally blow your mind. With 140 species of mammals, over 400 species of birds, 116 species of reptiles and amphibians, over 10,000 species of insects, and over 700 species of trees…one need not move far to take in the beauty all around.
Check out this video of a hike through the Osa.
On the other hand, you definitely want to get out in the gorgeous water! Whale sharks, humpback whales, three species of dolphin, sea turtles are alone worth the trip on one of the few tropical fjords in the world. For the active, sports such as world class surfing, kayaking, sports fishing, boogie boarding and paddle boarding, are all at your fingertips.

Talented guides, many with biology backgrounds, will give you a bird’s eye view of our peninsula. Iguana Lodge naturalist guide, Sidnar, is often seen wandering about with his telescope, guests in tow, pointing out our resident monkeys, sloths, etc. He is a font of rainforest knowledge, leading a variety of rainforest hikes.
Please see Iguana Lodge’s Recommended Tours, which features the Best of the Best. Our recommended tours are from years of swinging, hacking, and slithering through the jungle, getting to know the guides, and most importantly, listening to our guests. Excursions are private unless you prefer to join with others; rest assured that your guides are working to please you. This isn’t DisneyLand (thank goodness) this is the Osa Peninsula, this is the jungle.
“Truly a paradise, it is a place where jaguars still roam the jungles, Scarlet Macaws fly freely around the towns, and monkeys are found in numbers unmatched in all of Costa Rica if not Central America. Non “mainstream” travelers have discovered this previously little known, rugged paradise and come from around the world to experience the “wild side” of Costa Rica.”
