South Pacific

The South Pacific Region stretches between Quepos in the north down to the Osa Peninsula and border to Panama, bordered by the Talamanca Mountain Range with its highest Peak in Costa Rica, the Cerro Chirripó of 3820 m (12.532 feet). Main parts of this region are hardly explored for tourism and visitors mainly are focusing on Drake Bay and the Corcovado National Park and the area around the Cerro de la Muerte, the highest mountain pass of the Interamericana. Coastal vegetation is dominated by lowland rain forests reaching close to the vast and wild beaches, often interrupted by huge oil palm, banana and pineapple plantations. The Talamanca Mountain Range offers dense, impenetrable mountainous rain forest changing into Paramó vegetation. The average yearly precipitation in this area is about 5000 mm.

To visit the South Pacific Region, a domestic flight to Palmar Norte, Golfito or Puerto Jimenez should be taken into consideration or, interrupting the exhausting drive from San José, one or two overnights at the beautiful Valle de Dota, home of the largest Quetzal populations in Central America.
