Edition number 40 of Ballena Tales Magazine is dedicated to the events in the South Pacific of Costa Rica, and we have events in Sierpe de Osa every single day. Scarlett macaws, toucans (at the end of rainy season), howler monkeys at dawn, squirrels, and capuchin monkeys put on a concert and a colorful show close to our river and channels.
The ride to Sierpe is an event on its own. You will enjoy spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, and you will cross the amazing metal-structure bridge over the Terraba river, Costa Rica´s longest river.
The route will take you through large extensions of palm oil plantations, an ecosystem with overgrowing ferns and wild growing heliconias: the princesses of the jungle.
On the way between Palmar Sur and Sierpe, you will find the Spheres Museum at Finca 6, one of the archaeological sites recently declared World Heritage, and a site worth to visit. in the center of the authentically Costa Rican village of Sierpe, you will find Kokopelli. This tour company can help you cruise the beautiful Sierpe river and penetrate the channels through the largest mangrove forests in Central America to discover the unique beauty of the aquatic landscapes teeming with wildlife, birds, and crocodiles.
What other events do you need to be happy? A meal at the sister restaurant, Kokomama, would top off the day.
