No other resort offers such a complete range of adventures both on the ocean and in the rainforest. Each unforgettable experience is carefully planned and overseen by Dennis Atencio, Director of Expeditions. Dennis is certified within the Osa Peninsula Conservation Area (ACOSA) by the Costa Rican Tourism Institute as an Ecological Guide. He and his full-time staff will safely bring you as close to nature as you’re willing to get. Expeditions have been expertly crafted within four distinct habitats with all skill levels in mind. From white-knuckle thrills to awe-inspiring sightseeing, there’s so much to explore. Not sure where to start? With the extreme caliber of the Costa Rican coastline, you owe it to yourself to experience at least one adventure from each habitat. But that’s just the beginning!
Pause for a moment and in the stillness the rainforest comes to life. It’s a living, breathing being full of life and ready to be explored. Take this opportunity to walk among the world’s most amazing wildlife and experience nature at its purest. Discover the four unique monkey species native to Costa Rica. Then scale a rocky river gorge to Quebrada Clarita waterfall before you rappel down its moss-covered wall.

And now it becomes your personal playground. Grab your zip line and breeze through the rainforest canopy from a 160-foot platform. Then surround yourself with color and grace of a butterfly farm searching for the elusive Blue Morpho butterfly.

Golfo Dulce Expeditions
As one of only four tropical fjords in the world, its bed is rich with volcanic reefs, crevices and caves that have become the breeding grounds for a staggering variety of marine life. It is believed that the gulf is the only place in the world where the humpback whales from both the northern and southern hemispheres gather to breed. Its calm waters have created the preferred home for super pods of dolphins with numbers up to 10,000.

kayak to find the giant, gentle whale shark—the largest fish
in the sea, which can reach up to 40 feet.
