Central American South Pacific Coast

Chosa Land Co. is pleased to introduce the pristine OSA Peninsula in the South Pacific of Costa Rica and the Azuero Peninsula on the Pacific coast of Panama. The OSA Peninsula has been a well kept secret during the past 30 years. However, that is no longer possible. The Costa Rican government has spent approximately 100 million dollars on OSA infrastructure during the last decade. This new investment in infrastructure is allowing many more people to visit, and this in turn has created unequaled opportunities for residents, visitors, and investors alike. Due to the huge investment of infrastructure, the OSA has been given no choice but to develop. Please click here to view a short video of the OSA peninsula

The Azuero Peninsula and surrounding islands with its white-sand beaches, and soft rolling hills, is the home base for world class surfing, diving and sport fishing. It is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean in the south; the Pacific and Gulf of Montijo to the west, and by the Gulf of Panama in the east. Countryside life in the Azuero Peninsula is largely unchanged since the turn of the century. Azuero is famous for religious festivals dating back to Spanish colonial times. Many towns have 17th and 18th century churches. It also is home to Panama's best Carnival celebration in Las Tablas where thousands gather for this colorful and exhilarating event.

As long time OSA Peninsula residents, Chosa Land Co. would like to see the growth be beneficial for the OSA and its citizens. We intend to participate consciously and conscientiously in that development.

Sustainable growth is achieved by making educated decisions. It rarely happens via luck or ignorance. Chosa Land Co. was conceived to responsibly educate our clients to "life and investing" opportunities on the OSA and surrounding area using a "triple bottom line" theory that advocates "environmental responsibility, social responsibility, and financial profitability". Why have past and present day CR governments spent approximately 100 million dollars on infrastructure during the last decade for a small handful of OSA residents? It is the necessary application of a long term investigation which led to a commitment to develop a sustainable plan for the OSA Environment and its' people as they move forward into future decades. The pristine beauty on the OSA is like no other area in Costa Rica. The OSA Peninsula now has a world class level of infrastructure, yet needs to remain relatively unchanged. It is an exciting combination that comes with a huge responsibility! We continue to participate in ensuring this pristine region is available for all to enjoy for generations to come.

Efforts in Conservation

The beautiful OSA Peninsula is home to a diverse array of habitats. A sanctuary of lush rainforests, gorgeous beaches, and magnificent volcano ranges, this remote region provides habitat for some of nature's most exotic and colorful creatures. These areas include the Corcovado and Piedras Blancas National Parks, Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve, and the OSA Biological Corridor. Organizations such as EarthWatch, Conservation International, the Costa Rica-USA Foundation, and the Nature Conservancy are but a few working towards educating and helping preserve this spectacular Costa Rican national treasure.

Marine Giants

The deep blue waters of the Marine Conservation Corridor of the Tropical Eastern Pacific runs along the coast of the OSA. In these warm currents four different whale species and five dolphin species teach their calves hunting and diving skills. Several environmental and local development organizations carry out marine mammal observation trips right off the coast of the OSA Peninsula, Golfo Dulce and Drake Bay. These tours are strictly regulated by national and international marine resource protection agreements and meet the basic standards to respect the habitat of these playful creatures. OSA's southern beaches remain completely virgin, and are preferred surfing points for those who want to "walk on waves" facing an intact environment bursting with biodiversity. In this area one can still see female jaguars walking along the beach with their cubs. If surfing in a 100% natural environment is your kind of thing then visit us on the OSA. Don't forget the unbelievable hiking, birding, kayaking, biking, boating, fishing, turtle, whale and dolphin watching, snorkeling and diving that can also be enjoyed on the OSA.

Unexplored Land

Near the Panamanian border, lies the OSA Peninsula, a portion of virgin rain forest that spreads out into the Pacific Ocean in the southwest corner of Costa Rica. The Peninsula is a natural sanctuary, home to terrestrial and marine species of flora and fauna that not too long ago were completely unknown to the world. The tropical rain forest of the OSA and the surrounding Pacific Ocean are a refuge to countless species of land and marine animals and plants. Many scientists state that we will be discovering new ones for years to come. Proof of this regions biological importance is that Corcovado National Park, located on the OSA Peninsula, was declared by the National Geographic Society as "the most intense biological environment" on Costa Rica's mainland.

The Azuero Peninsula offers travelers long, deserted sandy beaches, surrounded by soft hills and green pastures. Due to the scarcity of rainfall during all year, the east coast of Azuero is called "arco seco" or "dry arc", and it is perfect for those who like constant good weather. If you are a surf lover, you will certainly enjoy the big waves of Venao, Cambutal and Lagarto beaches, among others. The best place to practice scuba diving and snorkeling is the National Wildlife Refuge of Isla Iguana, south of Pedasi. This spectacular tropical island lies in the biggest coral reef of the Gulf of Panama. Isla Iguana Wildlife Refuge also offers whale watching during the season, and Isla de Canas Nature Preserve is an island village that receives more nesting turtles than any other location on the Pacific Coast. From April to October, hundreds of thousands of Pacific green, olive ridley, leatherback, loggerhead, and hawksbill turtles arrive here to lay eggs.
