Guess what? Puerto Jiménez is also named and spelled Puerto Jimenez - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Puerto Jimenez is the major town from which most people explore the amazing Osa Peninsula and the Corcovado National Park. It is a quaint little town situated on the beach and you can get here on a bus from San Jose or take a boat over the peninsula. The beach itself is quite shallow and you can go and hang out and have a swim with the locals or you can start getting among the other more adventurous activities that they have to offer here.
The national park is the major draw card and you can organize with the companies here to go with a guide or tour group, or you can self guide and camp specific walks throughout the park. The most popular one is from La Leona Station through to the Sirena station, where you can camp the night or they have dorm rooms. To visit the park you first have to obtain a reservation, which you get from the Park Information Center just near the airport. You then have to go and pay for the reservation at the local bank in town and then go back to the Park Information Center to obtain your permits. Keep in mind that the bank is not open on Sundays so if you get here on a weekend you will be waiting until Tuesday to walk.
In the town there are many restaurants, a convenience store, and supermarkets where you can stock up on food supplies and a bank. You will find most of what you need during your stay here and it is all within close proximity and walking distance to the hostels in Puerto Jimenez. It is one of the best kept secrets of Costa Rica and the wildlife here is amazing. Definitely drop in to Puerto Jimenez and explore the amazing Corcovado National Park! You won't regret it!
