What you'll do

On the 2-hour Osa Interactive Gardens tour we explore the reserve and large butterfly pavilion. Enter the property under the huge kapok tree and cross the bridge over the Ignacia river, where there is often wildlife like herons, basilisk, and caiman. Follow the trail along the river where there is a good chance to see monkeys, macaws, and toucans. Head up to the main part of the reserve to check the frog ponds and the permaculture garden, producing many fruits and medicinal plants. Enter the large butterfly protect and release pavilion and labeled botanical collection with many endemic plants found only in the Osa Peninsula. The gardens can be viewed from 3 tall and beautifully carved treehouse platforms. Your experienced guide will show you how to find eggs, caterpillars, and pupas, and then move to the lab for butterfly breeding operations. This jungle experience is located right in Puerto Jimenez but feels deep in the jungle. If you like what we do, tips are appreciated.

Tours are run by either myself or Rayner, a Tico naturalist with 17 years guiding experience on the peninsula and expert ornithologist. When Rayner is not at Osa Interactive, he is guiding tours all over Costa Rica for scientists, photographers, or bird enthusiasts. We look forward to your visit
