Corcovado National Park



The diversity found on the Osa peninsula is not significantly surpassed by any other region of similar size on Earth. Gary Hartshorn's enthusiasm was only surpassed by the forests when he wrote in Costa Rican Natural History that. These forests are by far the most exuberant in Central America. In fact, the Corcovado forests are just as impressive in height as the best forests I have seen in the Amazon basin or the dipterocarp forests of Malaysia and Indonesia." He goes on to note "The Corcovado forests exemplify the popular conception of the tropical rain forest, with a multitude of species, very tall trees, spectacular buttresses, large woody lianas and abundant herbaceous vines.
Daniel Janzen, the editor of the same volume speculated that the peninsula contained the complete tropical insect ecosystem from Mexico to Panama. Location: Osa Peninsula Inhabitants: All four of the monkey species (including the highly endangered Red-backed Squirrel monkey), and all six of the feline species found in Costa Rica inhabit Corcovado. All four of the sea turtle species that nest in Costa Rica visit the beaches of Corcovado as well. Over 40 species of frogs including Red-eyed tree, Rain, Glass, Dink, and Poison Arrow varieties, dozens of snakes including a variety of Boas and the dreaded Bushmaster, as well as 28 species of lizards. More than 100 species of butterflies and at least 10,000 other insects call the Osa peninsula home (including a few you may wish were endangered).
