Cabo Matapalo is a small village on the very tip of the Osa Peninsula. The beaches around Matapalo, including Playa Matapalo, Backwash, and Pan Dulce, are known for being the best surf spots in the world. Matpalo is secluded and private, and makes for a perfect vacation spot.

Osa Tropical works with the majority of vacation rental homes in and around Matapalo. Most of the vacation houses are located directly on the beach or just a short walk to the beaches, and have amazing ocean views. Matapalo is also close to Corcovado National Park, one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. Just an hour drive away is Carate, the entrance of the National Park.

All of Matapalo is also surrounded by beautiful rainforest, which connects to the national park. You’ll see a variety of wildlife, such as monkeys, ant-eaters, agouties, and scarlet macaws – right outside of your vacation rental.
