Join fellow Conservancy supporters for the trip of a lifetime to Costa Rica, a land of enchanting tropical forests, towering volcanoes and miles of pristine beaches. Set between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea on the narrow land bridge of Central America, Costa Rica is an ecological hotspot, containing 5 percent of all the world’s biodiversity. Approximately a quarter of the country’s spectacular coasts, rainforests and mountains are formally protected as parks and reserves. The journey begins with a visit to Tortuguero National Park and its globally important sea turtle nesting areas. Next, you’ll travel to the remote and wild Osa Peninsula on the country’s gorgeous Pacific coast. An exotic eco-lodge will be your base for explorations into Corcovado National Park, home to howler monkeys, tapirs, jaguars, pumas, scarlet macaws and countless other rainforest creatures.
- Hop on a boat to Tortuguero National Park to see sloths, colorful tropical birds and nesting sea turtles.
- The park’s rainforest, mangroves, beaches and lagoons are biologically rich and home to more than 300 species of birds and thousands of native plant species.
- Head to the Pacific coast for a journey to the spectacular, wildlife-abundant reserves of the Osa Peninsula, including the 100,000-acre Corcovado National Park.

The Conservancy in Costa Rica
The Nature Conservancy works with the government of Costa Rica and other partners to maintain and protect the forests and coasts of the Osa Peninsula. From direct land acquisition to strengthening the management of existing protected areas, the Conservancy is committed to securing the peninsula’s tremendous ecological value. In the Talamanca Highlands and La Amistad regions, threats from deforestation, overfishing and poorly planned developments negatively affect species from spider monkeys and ocelots to fish and coral reefs. The area is also home to many indigenous communities who depend upon the land for their economic and cultural survival. The Conservancy works collaboratively with these stakeholders to assure a vibrant future for both human and natural communities.
