Location

Welcome to Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica!

The Osa Peninsula, located on the Southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, is one of the most diverse and scenic rainforest destinations in the world.  Come here to find untouched, breathtaking scenery and wildlife, secluded beaches, and come in touch with your inner warrior. 

Our jungle style getaway, Tres Palmas, sits atop a hill just a short hike to the beaches of Matapalo. Matapalo borders one of the largest national parks in Central America, Corcovado. Looking out past the lush vegetation of the jungle, enjoy beautiful views of migrating whales and exotic birds over the Pacific Ocean and Golfo Dulce. Panama is in the distance to the south and east, world famous surf spot Pavones to the east and Playa Zancudo to the north. We are located inside the rainforest jungle and near 4 beaches: Cabo Matapalo, Pan Dulce, Backwash Bay and Playa Matapalo de Osa.
