It is one of the world’s most biologically diverse places located on the wild and untouched Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. This rainforest is home to at least 800 species of birds. 139 species of mammals, 116 of amphibians and reptiles and some 6,000 insect species. The 41,000 hectares park is said to be home to thirteen major ecosystems such as mangrove swamps and jolilo palm groves to montane forests, lagoons, freshwater swamps, lowland rainforest and even beaches!

The tour guides says that it is a good place to spot posion arrow frogs (which I wouldn’t dare get near to), wildcats, pumas, crocodiles and jaguars. Also, because of its apparent isolation and inaccesibility, it became a home to the most beautiful Scarlet Macaws with their squawks being heard even from miles in the park. The park offers some fairly manageable hiking trails for everyone to admire and enjoy and keeping a guide would be recommended in order to learn more about the place and make sure that you won’t get lost in the park.

I agree with you. Exotic places like this should be explored.
