This beautiful Farm sits on the innermost shore of the Golfo Dulce, on southern pacific Costa Rica, not far from Rincón de Osa. With more than 63 hectares (156 acres), this property is vastly covered by a mature Tropical Wet Forest that receives more than 7,000 mm of rain per year, showing a brief effective dry season, and a well defined long rainy season. The forest is tall, multistratal , and evergreen, with a few species that are briefly deciduous, never changing the overall evergreen aspect of the forest.

The Golfo Dulce is an important tropical deep fiord that still enjoys having more than 60 percent of its shore covered by tropical forest, it receives the fresh water of two major rivers, the Esquinas River and the Rincón River. This gulf, among the 10 deepest gulfs in the world and one of only four tropical fiords on Earth, is one of the few places on our planet visited by both, Northern and Southern Humpback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae). These large cetaceans from the Southern Pacific spend their winter months from July to September, breeding, giving birth, and caring for their young in the warm waters of Costa Rica’s Southern Pacific shore, many of them choosing the protected calm warm waters of the gulf. Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks (Sphyrna lewini) transit through large marine areas, describing migrations from Golfo Dulce to the Galapagos Islands, and there is now evidence of connectivity between a coastal nursery area in this fiord, and an essential ocean habitat in the iconic Darwin Arch.

This marine habitat also serves as home to countless species of fish and other cetaceans, Pantropical Spotted Dolphins and Bottle-Nosed Dolphins inhabit and visit year around. The largest reef platform of the gulf is found in front of Finca Santa María, it provides great habitat for diverse species of colorful tropical fish, sting rays and sea turtles. Due to its marine wealth, the waters off the shore of the Osa Peninsula were declared as “Hope Spot” by Mission Blue, a global network of marine protected areas, led by scientist&Sylvia Earle.

Three small islets known as “Los Mogos” sit 2.5 km East from Finca Santa María, they add a magnificent scenic beauty to the Gulf and a reef platform also circles this tiny and unique archipelago.

The privileged location of the Finca, on the proximities of Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula, produces an amazing diversity of species of flora and fauna. Approximately 5% of the world’s biodiversity is found in Costa Rica, and 2,5% solely in the Osa Peninsula. These numbers strongly supports the reason for National Geographic to refer to the Osa as “The most biologically intense place on Earth”. More than 400 species of birds inhabit this region including forests, semi open and open areas, and mangroves, 306 species of these have been recorded within Finca Santa María. The proximity to the rich Piedras Blancas National Park, and the great forest connectivity with it, enhances the diversity of the finca as well.

The endangered species Yellow-billed Cotinga (Carpodectes antoniae) rely on the magrove forests at the river mouths of the Rincón and Esquinas Rivers and the pristine gulf’s shore, the population might follow contiguous gallery forest along the tributaries, sometimes a good distance upstream, but generally these cotingas favor the mangroves or adjacent shoreline.

The Costa Rican endemic Black-cheeked Ant-Tanager (Habia atrimaxillaris) inhabits the mature forest of Finca Santa María, and also the nearby forests of the Osa Peninsula, Piedras Blancas National Park, and gulf’s shore in between.


Osa Peninsula is located in the South Pacific of Costa Rica and is part of the Punterenas province. It is known as one of the most fabled and also most remote destinations in Costa Rica and the whole of Central America. The long stretches of pristine white sand are set against shimmering, turquoise waters. Many of the wildlife species found here are unique to this area. In fact, the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica is considered to be one of the most important areas because of the extraordinary biodiversity of the wildlife and plant life found only here. Being here will feel like walking around in a Real Life Jurassic Park!
