Exploring Costa Rica - personal accounts of our travels, expat life, Costa Rica ways
Where to Now? Uvita? Manuel Antonio? Parrita? Osa Mountain Village was our last "planned" stop of our 17-day itinerary, so we had some decisions to make on our last night in Osa. We wanted to drive up the Pacific coast and see the coastal town of Uvita and perhaps explore Dominical and beyond to Manuel Antonio, but after that, we had a clean slate, with no further destinations planned. I tried to arrange some property viewings with some realtors in the Uvita area but apparently, they were on "Pura Vida" time and I wasn't able to make any appointments prior to our Osa departure.
On day 7 of our Costa Rica Itinerary,, we set off to visit the nearby town of Ojochal, Ciduad Cortes and had an insiders look into eco community living.
After our walk, we headed out for a drive to explore the Osa Peninsula. We drove to Ciudad Cortes which was a surprisingly large town, but not all that interesting. After that, we drove to Sierpe. Sierpe is one of the jumping-off points for Corcovado tours. If we had had time we certainly would have taken a tour to Corcovado National Park the "Crown Jewel" of Costa Rica's national parks!
After spending an hour or two at the market we set off for the Osa Peninsula. We were taking the longer less traveled mountain route and would return along the coastal route later in the week. Per google, it would be approximately 2-hour drive.
