What to do in Sierpe de Osa

Sierpe de Osa, South Pacifiic, Costa Rica

Our little pacific village of Sierpe de Osa is so much more than just a place to hop on a boat to Drake´s Bay!

Stay overnight and discover the magic of the  Sierpe River  inverting its currents. Watch it by sunset, majestically flowing towards the sea, and the next morning running upstream while you are having your breakfast.Sierpe de Osa, South Pacifiic, Costa Rica

One of the most important natural attractions in Costa Rica are the Sierpe-Terraba Mangroves. During the tour you will delve into a myriad of small bright green channels where you will feel in an concert hall thanks to the cacophony of all the animals that inhabit the forest. The earlier the better, because you´re likely to see more animals. You will see howler monkeys, capuchin and squirrel monkeys, crocodiles, toucans, scarlet macaws, and the lizards will curiously be watching from the towering trees.

After lunch you might want o go for a hike, and look for the green and black poison dart frogs, snakes, and insects.

Another option is just relaxing in one of Sierpe´s hotels. Seafood here can´t get any fresher, so enjoy a dinner of fresh fish and shellfish. The night mystically changes the world, and animals that rested during the day, come out to feed. The “Sierpe Crocodile Night Tour” is safe and exiting.

Within the week, you could try a guided tour through Sierpe´s palm plantation; it is an amazing experience. You could go kayaking on the magical Sierpe River, or visit the “Piangua Island” where local fishermen sell their shells and offer fresh ceviche. The “Spheres Museum” at Finca 6 is also close by. Our bilingual guides will take care of you during the tour (recommended). Perhaps you prefer to spend the day at one of these deserted little beaches, visit Violin Island, or go on a sport fishing adventure. We live here and know the area. Let us make your time in Sierpe de Osa your best experience in Costa Rica!
