Where luxury runs wild: The Costa Rican resort with a unique rainforest experience

Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio Collection by Hilton will have an unrivalled location that will make the location the perfect base camp from which to explore Costa Rica’s incredible biodiversity.


Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio Collection by Hilton, will be the first branded residential resort and marina development in Costa Rica.

After more than 20 years as one of Costa Rica’s most iconic billfish sportfishing destinations, Crocodile Bay Resort has begun its transformation into Botánika Osa Peninsula, Curio Collection by Hilton. Slated to open in October 2021, Botánika will belong to a global portfolio of upscale hotels and resorts that cater to passionate travelers.

“With Corcovado National Park in our ‘backyard’ and the Pacific Ocean in our ‘front yard,’ Botánika will be virtually surrounded by national parks and forest reserves,” said managing member Cory Williams.

Botánika Costa Rica will offer guests a truly immersive rainforest experience with world-class sport fishing and a wide range of guided eco-adventures. Activities will appeal to almost all ages and tastes, from panning for gold; visiting an animal sanctuary, chocolate farm, or butterfly conservatory; voluntourism opportunities, including participating in endangered sea turtle conservation; kayaking through mangroves; exploring the jungle and sighting rare species of monkeys, plants and insects; to photography tours, zip-lining and horseback riding.
