About the Creator:
gramaha-1.jpgIf you have ever considered running away from the high stress conventional existence that so many of us experience in big cities today, Christopher Graham is an inspiration that escaping is indeed possible. In another life Chris was a trader in the financial world who decided to take a sabbatical from his high stress job; he did just that, and has never looked back since; this was 14 years ago!

In his pursuit to fulfill his desire to make a difference as an environmentalist, he involved himself in variety of local initiatives in the Osa Peninsula; a region renowned worldwide for its biodiversity; and over the course of the last 14 years he managed to produce a series of documentaries ranging from unplugging from everyday life, to capturing the essence of the Osa and its rich history on film. Christopher’s most ambitious initiative was the creation of a documentary that focused on The Osa Peninsula at a time that the region was on the brink of destruction.

In conjunction with Crocodile Bay Resort, Chris is pleased to offer you, our valued past guest and clients, a “first look” of this yet to be released documentary. We hope you enjoy the never before seen historical images featuring remote locations dating back to the early settlers.

This presentation has been created without sponsorship, and was 5 years in the making. We hope that you enjoy this educational journey in a region that many of you are already familiar with; and should you enjoy it, we encourage you to make a donation of $2.00 or more towards the creation of additional documentaries.


The Best Costa Rica Eco Tours – Exploring the Osa Peninsula

leaveyourcomfortzone2When it comes to adventure and Costa Rica eco tours, the small country of Costa Rica offers more options than most 10 times it’s size; the trick is to find the region of the country that offers the most complete variety of Costa Rica eco tours and activities  – on land, water, and even air…for thrill and adventure seekers of all ages and skill levels. Costa Rica has so many geographically and biologically diverse regions, it’s almost like four or five destinations packed into one. With a Pacific and Caribbean coast, cloud forest, the central Talamanca mountain range, and lowland tropical primary and secondary rainforest, you definitely want to research the activities each region has to offer. Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula, has emerged as Costa Rica’s “Crown Jewel” and is unparalleled in the country when it comes to rural eco tourism including access to Corcovado National Park and a plethora of other unspoiled tropical rainforest, beach and  protected marina areas. Crocodile Bay Resort, was built by the Williams family from California in 1999, and originally catered to professional anglers – they quickly realized catch and release sport fishing for marlin and sailfish was only a fraction of what one could experience in Costa Rica’s Southernmost Peninsula.

Costa Rica ToursOffering over 30 unique adventure eco tours, cultural experiences, and relaxing day trips, Crocodile Bay is a complete vacation destination with something for everyone. Zip-line through the canopy of Central America’s largest coastal rainforest (offering three zip-line tours with varying degrees of scenery and difficulty).
