Join us August 25th, 6:30pm at Roads Rivers and Trails for a presentation on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica and further details about 2023 trips: https://fb.me/e/2ym1TJW9B

The Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica was dubbed “The most bio-intense place on the planet,” by National Geographic due to the density of wildlife found here. It is also one of the original “Blue Zones”, i.e. happy and healthy.  Adventurers visiting the Osa can expect to see abundant wildlife and lush landscapes and can also expect to be thoroughly charmed by the warmth of local residents who are ranked among the happiest and healthiest people in the world.
