Introducing Palmar

At the intersection of the country’s two major highways, this unremarkable village is a transportation hub that serves as a gateway to the Osa peninsula and Golfo Dulce. Although the town also serves as an important banana-growing center, for the average traveler there is little reason to spend any more time here than it takes to get off the plane or change buses. Quite simply, it’s a hot, dusty and altogether uneventful place.
