The perfect trip: Costa Rica

Yet again, Costa Rica and the world famous Osa Peninsula (home to Corcovado national park - one of the most biologically intense places on earth) gets the thumbs up by BBC Travel & Lonely Planet Magazine... Pura Vida Ecolodge and its recently finished Bamboo Jungle Villa provides guests with the perfect 'nest' or 'retreat' to base yourselves whilst exploring the South Pacific zone of Costa Rica...Excursions and day trips include Corcovado national park &  Cano Island amongst a plethora of other amazing outdoor activities

"...The coast remains a riot of steamy rainforest, and the main way of getting around Bahía Drake – the minute Osa settlement named for the swashbuckler – is still by boat or foot. The peninsula now contains the last remaining strand of coastal Pacific rainforest in Central America, protecting the habitats of elusive jungle species such as the jaguar and puma, not to mention a roll call of other exotic characters – from squirrel monkeys and sloths to silky anteaters and poison-dart frogs...." 07 June 2012 By Carolina A Miranda, Lonely Planet Magazine
