Aguila de Osa Inn
" Our Osa favorite" offers deluxe 5 star jungle accommodations overlooking Drakes Bay with ceiling fans and private baths, distinctive cuisine, and comfortable atmosphere. Beautifully furnished with lavishly decorated hot water bathrooms. You can fish, dive, and hike the jungle trails with or without a guide. The Mangrove tour is one of Costa Rica's best eco nature adventure tours. National Geographic calls this area one of the "most bio-intense spots the planet". Just getting to Aguila de Osa is an adventure that you will enjoy and not soon forget. It is a tour in itself to get to The Osa. You go by charter airplane ,car through Banana and palm oil tree plantations to board a boat and go down the Sierpe River, then down coast line to Aguila de Osa Inn.
Best scuba diving in all of Costa Rica. Many world fishing records from the Osa and very nice fishing boats and equipment A/C not needed in this area due to off shore breezes and trade winds. Includes all meals, transfers tax, optional tours, diving or fishing available, best to reserve in advance Aguila de Osa Inn is located in Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula, situated on a high bluff overlooking the Aguitas River with panoramic views of Drake Bay. Reaching out into the Pacific Ocean along the southwest coast, the Osa was once described by National Geographic as one of the most biologically intense places on earth. Encompassing Corcovado National Park and Caño Island, two of Costa Rica's most prized protected areas; the Osa Peninsula is a priceless natural treasure with an abundance of tropical plants, mammals, insects and over 350 species of birds. No other region of Costa Rica offers the visitor a more pristine, virgin environment to discover. The Aguila de Osa Inn offers visitors to the region a comfortable and private refuge from which to explore the magic and beauty of Mother Nature in all her glory and complexity. We welcome you to Aguila de Osa Inn and look forward to providing you with a long lasting, memorable vacation experience. Includes all meals, kayaks and dive & snorkel gear. Among Osa Peninsula's delights are its remoteness and undeveloped, primitive state. Accessible only by boat, the Drake Bay area is free of roads, cars, and even TV's and radios. (Aguila has power 24 hours a day.) We have, however, made it surprisingly accessible for the savvy adventurer. Transportation to and from the hotel can be coordinated through your Tour operators office. Several domestic airlines offer chartered scheduled flights from San Jose to Palmar Sur with flights lasting approximately 40 minutes. From Palmar Sur a comfortable 15 minute mini-van ride through locally co-opted palm oil plantations brings you to the Aguila de Osa Inn dock along the Sierpe River. Once at Sierpe you'll board one of our personalized tenders and begin a one hour boat ride to the hotel, which in itself is a memorable experience. The first half of the journey includes a scenic ride down the Sierpe River, which is relatively flat and lined with towering bamboo trees and low-lying mangroves. At the midway point you'll reach the mouth of the Sierpe River where it empties out into the Pacific Ocean. At that point you'll turn left and head south along the rugged, lush coast for five miles until you disembark at Aguila's very own private dock. You have now arrived. A tour in it's self just going to Aguila de Osa and Drake Bay.
