A forgotten village, newly discovered by adventurers and conservationists, Puerto Jimenez is the only real town of significance on the Osa Peninsula and the entrance to the northern side of Corcovado National Park. Puerto Jimenez is still the last outpost to points further south and west into the Corcovado Park, this is your last chance to send emails, make phone calls and stock up on supplies. While Puerto Jimenez has typically been the staging ground for adventures deeper into the wild, there are a number of fun and exciting activities that can be found outside the park. Plenty of local outfitters in town and arranged thru the hotels can help with kayaking, horseback, fishing, surfing and bird watching tours that are spectacular without actually having to enter the park.
Costa Rica’s most breathtaking scenery and most abundant wildlife thrive on the Osa Peninsula, one-third of which is covered by Corcovado National Park. Exploring Corcovado Park should not be taken lightly, this is a wild untouched area and for those that want to experience a safe and educational introduction to the park, the best way to see it is with an experienced guide.
Going south from Puerto Jimenez on the only road out of town, the road ends at the tip of the Peninsula at a beach called Matapalo. A place where you can surf world class right handers under a pair of screeching scarlet macaws, this is as close to untouched paradise as you can get.
Sport-fishing is world renowned here as well with several records for sailfish and marlin having been recorded in the waters off Golfo Dulce farther out into the Pacific Ocean. The Golfo Dulce is one of only three tropical fjords in the world, the Dulce features 600 foot deep waters in the center of the gulf that attract humpback whales on their northern and southern migrations.
The area is also known for its abundance of award winning eco- lodges, fine hotels and fishing lodges to accommodate all types of travelers.

In the 1980´s, Puerto Jimenez briefly blossomed on income from the local gold trade and earned a reputation as a “Wild West” frontier town, where you could see “cowboys” walking thru town with guns in holsters and where a bottle of guaro and a meal could be bought with a nugget of gold. Today the town thrives on tourism revenues.
