Eco Adventures

Travel with Mary and Bill Burnham to one of their favorite places on Earth, Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula on the South Pacific coast, a region labeled one of the most biologically diverse places on Earth. Howler monkeys and scarlet macaws are your alarm clock as you awake in your rainforest cabina or "glamping" tent cabin. The Golfo Dulce, or "Sweet Gulf," is the centerpiece of our paddling adventures. One of the world's deepest tropical fjords, the gulf has garnered world-wide attention as a critical breeding ground for humpback whales, and for its large resident populations of Atlantic bottlenose and pantropical spotted dolphins.
