Casa los Suenos
Guest house | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This tropical home is located in the Osa Peninsula, southwest Costa Rica where the rainforest meets the sea. It is in one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. One of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled, it has been dubbed Costa Rica's last wilderness frontier. Rich in wildlife, sparsely populated and until recently very difficult to access by road. Consequently much of the peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. Dominated by Corcovado National Park which protects most of the peninsula, the Osa supports more then fifty percent of the animal and plant species that live in Costa Rica. National Geographic has described the Osa as, "The most biologically intense place on earth".
Within the Osa you will find Dos Brazos, a town with a rich history and an even more prosperous future. Not more than 30 years ago, gold, and lots of it, was Dos Brazos' claim to fame. Today Dos Brazos is a sleepy little village of just 175 inhabitants that lies in the richest location you can imagine, right at the border of the world famous Corcovado National Park, with a brand new park entrance coming in 2014! Although gold mining is still practiced, the real wealth of the area is the captivating biodiversity found in the last remaining lowland tropical rainforests of Central America.
It's a small oasis of civilization, surrounded by the jungle of the forest reserve that encompasses Corcovado. Although it's a short 12-kilometer ride from the beautiful Pacific beaches of Puerto Jimenez, and just a little further from great wave riding in Matapalo, it's a town that is barely known on the tourist circuit. From Dos Brazos you'll find extensive walking trails into the jungle, with many waterfalls to see, world class birding, horseback riding, gold mining tours, and more are all available. There are two small grocers, a bar, and a Soda (diner). So get off the beaten path, and make your way to Dos Brazos del Rio Tigre!
