The South Pacific region of Costa Rica currently is known as Central America’s last frontier. The main activities include beach enjoyment and marine resources, such as whales and dolphin’s observation, as well as mangrove swamp’s, landscapes, reptilian, sport fishing, surfing, hiking through the National Park’s paths, professional diving, the energetic walks to the Chirripo’s summit, botanical gardens and impressive waterfalls.
Ecotourism features as the main product, especially the one that is carried out among the Humedal Sierpe-Terraba; the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve, the Ballena Marine National Park, the Isla del Caño Biological Preserve and the Corcovado National Park. The beach’s tourism possesses a wide potential in the coastal sector of Dominical-Piñuela, Platanares Beach, Zancudo and Pavones. The mountain’s product identifies itself in the Cordillera de Talamanca’s Mountain subunit, where San Gerardo de Rivas and San Vito of Coto Brus stand out as access centers to Chirripo National Park and the Friendship World Patrimony site. Additionally, there is a high potential in the rural tourism development, in country settlements distributed along the region.
Two important protected areas are located in this zone, one is the Corcovado National Park, which National Geographic Magazine defines as “the planet’s biologically richest place” and the Humanity Biosphere Preserve, declared as Humanity Patrimony and part of the Amistad International Park. The best way to reach this wonderful area is by plane, and Costa Rica Special Deals Online can arrange both private charters and bookings on scheduled domestic service. We recommend a three-night stay in the area in order to visit the most important attractions and truly absorb the Southwest experience.
