Costa Rica South Pacific Magazine and Travel Guide, Library

If you’re planning to enjoy the best of Costa Rica, come to us and experience lots of adventure and fun. You can admire amazing flora and fauna, gorgeous beaches for surfing, private conservation reserves, a wildlife sanctuary, waterfalls, a reptile park, native indigenous communities with stone spheres (listed as a World Heritage Site), and the Sierpe River mangroves, the largest in Central America. 

Another positive aspect is that, in the South Pacific, most tourist services are offered by small family businesses, whose owners attend to their customers in a very personalized way; besides, entrepreneurs have a high environmental consciousness, and take really good care of Osa County’s natural treasures.
