It’s an adage you’ll hear everywhere from the pink sand beaches on the north side of Playa Conchal to the colorful, musical city streets of San Jose. You’ll soon learn that the simple life is more than just a greeting, a goodbye, or a way to describe when all is well. Pura vida is a way of life. It’s something you feel when you’re trekking off-the-beaten-path in rural Costa Rica, learning about culture from the locals, and getting lost on a rainforest adventure. Costa Rica will remind you to slow down, take it all in, and connect with the beautiful landscapes and delightful people surrounding you.
Authentic Connections with People and Nature
BEST experience EVER with a guide, and just one of the best experiences I’ve had in general
A Must do Adventure!
Xiña is the dynamic, engaging female main character of the award-winning documentary 2.5% - The Osa Peninsula about the impacts of tourism development on local communities in Costa Rica. The experience that Xiña offers to her jungle mountainside cabin is a one hour gorgeous hike up a mountain that leads to Corcovado National Park.
Venture into the heart of the Talamanca indigenous territory on the upper part of the Yorkin river for a unique, immersive cultural experience. Departing from the town of Bambú, you'll take a trip in a traditional dugout canoe to the Yorkin community.
Enjoy a stay at La Leona Eco Lodge, a wonderful beachfront tiki style ecolodge where you might get lucky and spot some marine turtles. You will also hike into Corcovado National Park where you will most certainly encounter monkeys, toucans, anteaters, scarlet macaws, and much more.
Experience the breathtaking beauty and unique biodiversity of Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula in our film. Covering just 0.0001% of the planet's surface, this tropical rainforest is home to 2.5% of the world's species. We fell in love with the region when we first visited in 2012, but were shocked to learn that the planned construction of an international airport threatened to destroy its natural beauty forever. Join us on our journey to learn more and help protect this incredible place. Don't miss this amazing film. Watch the full documentary >
