Dos Brazos, Kosta-Rikë

Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre is a small town around 300 people. The town is famous for its gold mining and proximity to Corcovado National Park. A couple years ago a park trail for Corcovado National Park (not park entrance) was opened so guests could access the park. This has increased tourism and the town has started to flourish, and is an example of how rural tourism can be successful. Dos Brazos has been characterized as one of the last few remaining towns in Costa Rica that has not been overridden with tourism. Visiting Dos Brazos is an authentic experience and you will feel like you just visited a town that was from 50 years ago.

Location
We are located approximately 12km from Puerto Jimenez and the fresh clean air and water make for a much different experience than staying in the larger well known town of Puerto Jimenez. Dos Brazos is located in the foothills, of the Osa Peninsula bordering Corcovado National Park along the Rio Tigre (tiger river).

Dos Brazos is off the beaten path yet very close to everything you need. Puerto Jimenez is where you can find beaches, fishing, surfing, restaurants, stores, transportation and a wi-fi internet connection.

GOLD MINING HISTORY
LOS OREROS DE OSA
Today, the Osa Peninsula is world-renowned for its extensive biodiversity, however, not too long ago, the landscape was notorious not for its lush greenery, but an entirely different color altogether: gold.

For years, dating back to the early 1500’s, there has been much speculation that the Caribbean and Costa Rica in particular were laden with gold and other riches. In 1502, Christopher Columbus became the first European to cross the Atlantic on his fourth and final voyage and settle in what is now considered the Limón region on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. During his explorations, Columbus was most impressed by the ornate gold jewelry worn by the indigenous people who inhabited the area. It was this discovery in addition to the dense natural landscape that many historians believe led Columbus to coin the country’s name Costa Rica or “Rich Coast” as it translates in English.

Yet, despite early speculation of the potential riches to be unearthed in this previously unchartered territory, gold was not discovered in Costa Rica until more than 300 years following the Spaniards’ arrival in the region. Unlike other Central and South American countries such as Mexico, Bolivia and Peru which were exploited as precious metal providers during this colonial period, Costa Rica primarily sustained its economy through agriculture. Large-scale gold mining didn’t begin until the 1820’s, though it soon declined shortly after in the 1840’s. It wasn’t until the 1930’s when gold was discovered on the Osa Peninsula that the industry was later revived, spurring gold fever to sweep the country once again.

For many years, Osa was considered “el lugar indeseado,” or “the undesired place” as it translates in English, due to it’s intense untouched landscape and lack of inhabitants. However, with the discovery of gold in the region, a great migration to the Peninsula ensued as many fortune seekers flocked to the area with hopes of striking it big mining for gold. Many of those who migrated to the area were non-conformist refugees from other Caribbean nations seeking refuge from the tyrannical rule of their national governments along with former banana plantation workers from the Limón region seeking work following the closing of many of the United Fruit Company plantations during this time.

The Peninsula was one of Costa Rica’s largest gold-bearing regions until the late 1980’s and was known for producing exceptionally high-grade natural gold with a purity above 21 carats, considered to be very high for natural gold deposits and some of the purist found in all of Central America. As a result, throughout this “gold rush period,” the region experienced a large economic boom fueled by artisanal gold prospecting. Unlike other gold mining zones of Costa Rica, however, Osa was unique in that gold was not only abundant in the mountainous regions but also littered river banks throughout the Peninsula in sedimentary form. Sedimentary gold, in contrast to larger gold nuggets, can be extracted in an artisanal process known as gold panning, a labor intensive method that utilizes a sieve or gold pan to separate the precious metal out of sand and gravel. This artisanal form of mining was the primary method adopted by many of the local gold miners, known locally here in Spanish as “oreros”.

The community of Dos Brazos de Rio Tigre was one of the major gold mining communities settled on the Peninsula due to its location positioned between the two arms of the Tigre River and on the outskirts of the mountainous jungle landscape of what is now Corcovado National Park. During this time, the Tigre River was said to be one of the rivers with the largest concentration of naturally occurring gold deposits in all of Osa. As a result, for many years the primary economic activity of the families who settled here was artisanal gold mining. Yet, due to speculation of the abundance of gold to be found in the area, along with these artisanal gold miners came extensive foreign commercial mining operations. Unlike the practices of artisanal gold miners, however, the operations of mining firms utilized extensive machinery to extract gold. Due to the nature of these commercial practices, these large scale operations had a dramatic impact on the surrounding area, reshaping much of the formerly untouched landscape of the Peninsula. This not only resulted in the destruction of many wildlife habitats in the region, which consequently caused many species to become endangered, but also had a significant environmental impact as a result of deforestation and landslides which altered forest lighting and effected local temperatures.

In response to this extensive environmental damage, in 1975 then President Daniel Oduber established Corcovado National Park, a protected conservation territory of the Osa Peninsula that spans nearly 1/3 of the region’s terrestrial landscape. With the formation of this protected territory came significant government effort to eradicate any extractive activities within the park's limits and, by the early 1980’s, the government completely banned gold prospecting in all forms and began to heavily enforce these regulations within this restricted territory. While this legislation improved environmental conditions in the long run, for many locals, the immediate impact was overwhelmingly negative, resulting in widespread unemployment. Dos Brazos was one of the communities most effected by this new regulation, as many locals were prohibited from practicing the primary activities that enabled them to generate income to support their families for so many years.

THE OSA PENINSULA
A NATURE-LOVER'S PARADISE
The Osa Peninsula, a lush remote location tucked away along the southern tip of Costa Rica's Pacific coastline, is one of the country's finest hidden treasures, praised for its tropical landscape of unparalleled richness and exceptional biodiversity. Osa was one of the last frontiers to be inhabited in Costa Rica with significant migration to the Peninsula beginning in the early 1930's onset by the discovery of significant gold deposits in the region. Though settlement during this "gold rush" continued through the better part of the 1970's, Osa is still sparsely populated with much of the region relatively untouched and only readily accessible by boat, horseback or hiking trail. While areas of Osa remain rather secluded, this in part is the very essence of the charm of the region, making it a world-renowned paradise and one of Costa Rica's top ecotourism destinations.
Costa Rica as a whole has been recognized for its concerted conservation efforts and environmental practices with an impressive 25% of the country's land protected under the national park and reserve system. Osa represents an important piece of the country's protected natural landscape as this 700-square-mile stretch of land is the distinguished home to 2.5% of the world's biodiversity. Due to the extensive terrestrial and marine ecosystems endemic to the region, nearly 80% of the landscape remains part of an undeveloped patchwork of protected conservation territory known as the ACOSA region, or "Osa Conservation Area".

The body of water that separates the Osa Peninsula from mainland Costa Rica is known as the Golfo Dulce, one of four tropical fjords on the planet and the only place on the globe where populations of both Northern and Southern Humpback whales meet to birth their young. The Térraba-Sierpe Wetlands, located on the Northern-Pacific region of the Peninsula, is the country's largest mangrove forest and represents the most significant wetland ecosystem in all of Central America. Osa's terrestrial regions house the largest remaining tract of lowland rainforest in all of Pacific Mesoamerica as well as the largest population of scarlet macaws in Central America and 3% of flora found nowhere else in the world. Apart from the extensive exotic species of wildlife found on the Peninsula, Osa is also known for some of the best surfing beaches (Cabo Matapalo) and is widely acclaimed to have the best snorkelling in all of Costa Rica (protected reserve Isla de Caño). However, by far the most popular tourist attraction on the Peninsula is world-renowned Corcovado National Park, the largest national park in all of Costa Rica with an impressive ecosystem of wildlife and biodiversity unlike anywhere on the planet (please read the "Corcovado National Park" section below for additional details).
Yet, whether you're a nature enthusiast, an adventure junkie, or simply looking for a relaxing escape, the Osa Peninsula is truly a unique tropical paradise with plenty of nature tours and adventure excursions that will be sure to make your stay in Costa Rica an experience to remember!

CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK
THE CROWN JEWEL OF COSTA RICA
Established in October 1975, Corcovado National Park is the largest park in Costa Rica and protects nearly a third of the Osa Peninsula, spanning an area of 54,039 terrestrial hectares and 2,400 marine hectares. The park is home to 13 major ecosystems and conserves the largest primary forest on the American Pacific coastline and one of the few remaining sizeable areas of lowland tropical forests in the world. National Geographic named it "the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity," as the park contains 140 mammal species, 400 bird species (20 of which are endemic), 117 amphibian and reptile species, 40 species of freshwater fish, 500 species of trees, and 8,000 species of insects. Corcovado remains one of the last intact habitats of the New World's largest feline, the jaguar, and is home to four additional species of cats including, the puma, the ocelot, the jaguarundi, and the margay. All four Costa Rican monkey species can be found within the park including, the white-faced capuchin, the mantled howler, Geoffrey's spider monkey, and the endangered Central American squirrel monkey. In addition to the squirrel monkey, amongst the expansive number of species that reside in Corcovado are some of the largest remaining populations of a number of endangered species including, the Baird's tapir, the giant anteater, the white-lipped peccary, the harpy eagle, the scarlet macaw, and the American crocodile, amongst others.
Corcovado is open to the public and can be visited on day hikes or overnight treks, however, as of February 1, 2014, all visitors must be accompanied by a certified professional guide to enter the park.

His images introduce you to landscapes and cultures few ever experience so closely. Since 1998, Josh has explored over 65 countries, published numerous photographic books, produced the CAPTIVATED Image Film Series, has been awarded membership to the acclaimed Explorers Club, and is the founder and owner of the Journeyman Photography Gallery. Josh’s formal training in 35mm picture taking and dark room development dates back over 20 years ago to The Governor’s Academy, the oldest boarding school in the United States. The artistic seed and medium for expression was planted. His respective passion for photography and travel exploration converged on his first journey to Western Europe following graduation from Rollins College, 1998. This trip energized an initial foundation of photography and exploration. However, an inspirational yearlong expedition to South America and Africa, 2003-04, compelled Josh to share his stories. These narratives, conveyed via artistic images, are the purest reflection of his travel experiences. Since 2012, Josh has evolved to embrace the privilege of owning a business while incorporating the ability to travel and photograph. His passion calls him to experience and explore at least one new country a year while enjoying time in Florida to deepen his roots and develop his business within the community and abroad. Through photography, Josh not only shares his own journeys, but also hopes to inspire others to explore their own passions.
