La Cotinga Biological Station was born as a project inspired by the research and conservation of the natural resources of the Osa Peninsula, through the generation of educational and scientific experiences.
While tropical birding can seem intimidating and difficult, the open areas are more accessible than some other more adventurous destinations. From the hand of the renowned ornithologist, you will learn about the behavior, reproductive habits, predation, and interactions of birds found in the Osa Peninsula. Overall, we protect 16 species of endemic birds and over 800 species in the entire country.
Things to bring: Insect repellent, sunblock, tennis shoes, comfortable long pants, flashlight, reusable water bottle, hat or cap, handkerchief, camera, binoculars.

Great place for nature immersion, located in Guadalupe de La Palma de Puerto Jiménez and right next to the Corcovado National Park. What were once cattle pastures are now part of a program of regenerative processes in the forest, to create biological corridors between highly important forested areas and with the hope of creating a buffer zone area for the park’s unique flora and fauna.
