Osa Peninsula advice - Where to go, lodging and adventure tours?
Hi all, We are heading to CR end of May and considering Osa as a place to visit for about 4 -5 days. We are looking for adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices. My questions to you are:
1 - Which part of Osa (jimenez, drake bay, etc) best accomplishes this? (adventurous activities, beautiful beaches, an authentic/rustic experience and moderate prices)
2 - Is there any suggested lodging that is moderately priced and lends a clean but nature-oriented experience?
3 - What are some of the best activities for two highly curious, eco-loving and adventurous people?
Thanks for offering your help!!
I've heard that there are sicknesses transmitted by mosquitos, and that DEET should be applied continuously -- Is that true, and if so, any other precautions need to be taken? What about poisionous insects?
