All Puerto Jimenez ads & Touristic Information
Puerto Jiménez is the gateway to the Osa Peninsula and the Corcovado National Park, facing the Golfo Dulce in southern Costa Rica.
Puerto Jimenez was formerly known as Mina de Oro, which created a population growth in a short time. This particular feature, as well as banana cultivation, turned Puerto Jimenez into a small but important town, with easy access by land, sea and air.
