Ecotourism on Costa Rica’s Peninsula Papagayo
Get in gear for ecotourism at its finest in Costa Rica's Peninsula Papagayo.
Biodiversity reigns in Costa Rica, a country that represents just .01% of the Earth’s land mass yet boasts an astounding 5% of its wildlife.
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is the perfect base for exploring this unique ecosystem. Hundreds of species live on Peninsula Papagayo, including the elusive howler monkey. Even the beaches play up the Pacific peninsula’s diversity, stretching out in a parade of colours of white, coral, grey and black.
A variety of ecotourism opportunities depart from the resort. Discover the rich flora and fauna in Palo Verde National Park, whose borders encompass rivers, marshland, mangroves and dry forest. The bubbling mud and steaming fumaroles of Rincón de la Vieja Volcano National Park are a must-see on this peninsula formed by volcanic eruptions. Travel the Corobicí River, tour the canyon at Guachipelin, skywalk in the rain forest, cover yourself with the volcano’s silky mud at the Borinquen hot springs, and kayak or snorkel in the Golfo de Papagayo.
