QUÉ SERÁ, SERÁ!
Do you remember this beautiful song? The blue sky above our heads, the colors of the ever-changing nature, and the warm temperatures encourage us to move forward with a firm step towards a different future. It will be different, and it is up to us to create our own. And this is how we start each new day with the best of intentions: a new adventure, a challenge, a surprise.
We suggest tours to experience the essence of the South Pacific, know the wonders of its parks, its marine, and underwater life, the mangroves, or the jungle of Costa Ballena at night. You can ride at sunset along the beach. You can dare to launch yourself into the void traveling at lightning speed through the crowns of trees, forgetting about the shock immediately as your attention is captivated by the breathtaking views over the valleys and the sea in the distance. Enjoy Osa will gladly help you organize your vacation in our paradise.
After an excursion, you will always have a bear´s appetite, and our restaurants offer a wide variety. There is a tilapia restaurant a few kilometers south of Ojochal. Very picturesque, cool, in the middle of a well-kept nature and next to the fish ponds. Walking through a path covered with old trees, you reach the river and a waterfall.
The waterfall pours its waters into different pools that invite you to take a dip. At the Tilapia La Cascada Restaurant, you will find one of the tallest and oldest ceibos (Erythrina crista-galli) in the area. It is 204 years old and stands around 45 meters tall. Be sure to go; you will enjoy it very much; also the food is fresh and delicious. The South Pacific of Costa Rica offers art and culture, as well.
The Costa Rican goldsmith Oli Valerio (Awa.Oli), who has traveled to more than 60 countries, presents his jewelry, precious works of art and tells us how he has finally found his paradise here. Ruby Fergus, a very creative weaver of materials from the palm, describes her life in Dominical.
Two pre-Columbian spheres were found near the small town of Palmar on the banks of the Terraba river, an indication of the discovery of a new and important archaeological monument.
At the end of January, the indigenous town of Curré, also on the banks of this majestic river, celebrates the Little Devil´s dance. This colorful event attracts many spectators from near and far. It is a unique occurrence in the South of Costa Rica that is celebrated from January 27th to 30st.
Enjoy your stay; we wish you very delightful moments!
