The Ecological Honeymoon: Osa Penisula

After leaving SR in San Jose, TD and I had an early flight to Puerto Jiminez, the gateway to the Osa and Corcovado National Park. We had an amazing time and saw tons of wildlife! We stayed at a great family run ecolodge and also hiked into Sirena-the park headquarters-where I spent a few months as a field assistant when I was an undergrad.
Our teeny plane

The ecolodge was a pleasant 30 minute hike along the beach. Thankfully there was a horse-cart for our bags.

We arrived just in time for lunch - the food was amazing!

We had a great tent cabin facing the beach

Fun outdoor bathroom

The beautiful view from our front porch

We stayed at the Ecolodge for one night and left early the next day with our guide for a hike and 2 nights at Sirena inside Corcovado.
