The village of Cabo Matapalo is at the outermost point of the Osa Peninsula, in the southern Pacific coast area of Costa Rica.

Known for its remoteness, Matapalo is a hidden paradise amongst jungle and ocean. The Matapalo region has beautiful beaches, amazing surf points and lush natural scenery thanks to its closeness to Corcovado National Park. Matapalo's exuberant wild life makes it very easy to spot macaws flying over your head, and howler monkeys among many other species.
