The small town of Sierpe is a little port lying very close to the mangroves and is a place you need to pass through to reach the Osa Peninsula.

My suggestion:
Take a boat trip through the impressive mangroves. It will be an unforgettable experience, and you're sure to see crocodiles there!
My review

When leaving the town of Palmar Norte you first pass through an area of palm plantations extending as far as the eye can see before arriving in the little port of Sierpe. Though there isn't much to do in this little town, it does have a very nice atmosphere. It's possible to stay overnight in Sierpe, and you can satisfy your appetite at the big restaurant next to the sea.

There are small boats that sail from Sierpe to Bahia Drake, a town on the Osa Peninsula. To get there, you first have to pass through wonderful, dense mangroves – an experience you're bound to be impressed by – before eventually heading out onto the open waters of the Pacific Ocean! Therefore, if you want to explore the incredible Corcovado National Park, you will need to visit Sierpe when in Costa Rica.
