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.
