Despite being small and laid-back, Puerto Jiménez is the largest town on the Osa Peninsula. It has a population of about 6,000. During the gold rush, 1980s Puerto Jiménez resembled a town out of the Wild West. Nowadays things have calmed down and the town has become popular with the backpacking set, surfers, lovers of adventure tourism and devotees of ecotourism. Its location on the Golfo Dulce makes Puerto Jiménz and its environs perfect for snorkeling, scuba diving and kayaking. There are only a couple of ways to reach Puerto Jiménez: over a paved road, by small plane or by boat.
There are a few expats living in and around Puerto Jiménez. However, it takes a special breed of foreigner who is willing to do without a lot of
conveniences and services and who wants to "get away from it all". By far the most famous park is the Corcovado National Park on the Osa Peninsula, the place that the National Geographic dubbed as one of two places in the world with the most biological diversity Here you will find
everything from jaguars and peccaries, to many varieties of frogs, birds, and reptiles, as well as several kinds of monkeys.
The Golfito Marina is expected to revitalize this area and cause a major land boom. The ICT (Costa Rican Tourism Institute) also considers
the Puerto Jiménez area suitable for a future marina project.
