Today, Puerto Jiménez is a vital center of commerce for the peninsula. Puerto Jimenez is home to the regional airport connecting the Peninsula with all of the main destinations in Costa Rica and is located next to the town. Most of the residents and businesses in the Matapalo and Carate area have some office presence in town and purchase supplies and fuel here. Puerto Jimenez as a staging point for the Osa offers many advantages. Puerto Jimenez is centered geographically on the peninsula, reducing driving time for those interested in the Drake area of the peninsula as well as Matapalo or Carate.
While traditional tourism is a mature industry in Puerto Jimenez an enormous contribution to the economy comes from expatriate residents in the form of investment and development in real estate and commercial enterprise. Nevertheless, there remains a strong agricultural industry in the cattle, rice, and African palm sectors. The Osa is one of the rare places in the world with the climate and topography, coincidentally, to support three annual harvests of rice, a ready-cash crop. The Golfo Dulce is also a magnet for sport fishermen, as this large gulf is home to several species of fish that will push the skills of even the most experienced anglers to their limit.
