We took a day tour at the Corcovado Park with Juan Carlos, from Puerto Jaminez. Corcovado Dreams office is on the main street of Purto jaminez, right next to Carolina restaurant - and they can recommend and take care of all attractions, tours, hotels restaurants in the Osa area.Erick and Juan Carlos are the nicest people, and their prices for...

The Corcovado is one of the last really undevelopped areas in Costa Rica and the national park is just huge! On our guided tour we literally passed rivers, swamps and many small trails. This is a must see if you like the raw forest as it is. Among the more common animals such as the monkeys and smaller mamals, we... More

A trail of networks crisscross between the Sirena lodge and the ocean, and the abundance of wildlife was astounding! Guides seemed good but not amazing - too focused on the 'major' attractions and not the ecosystem or even flora/insects. It seemed that they had a personal agenda to check animals off their list (some which I had never before seen,... More

I really enjoyed my time at the park! My wife was a bit nervous about the crocs, but we made it through. I was pretty beat the next day, so we took a small plan out of the park the next day. Guides are now mandatory, but that would be a good idea anyway. Our guide was great, Bryan Carranza... More

Corcovado Park is truly amazing and not even comparable to Tortuguero and Manuel Antonio (which are both nice, don't get me wrong). Some key comments: - It's a full day activity (7-8 hours) as you need a 30-45min boat ride to get there (although it depends were you start from and where you exactly you go, I guess). We were...

A day in Puerto Jiminez started our Osa Penisula adventure. A quiet and remote spot indeed. We walked into town and got set-up with our bus ticket, guide, and Corcovado park permit for the next morning. By the way - a bus is a large late model open air truck covered by a plastic tarp. Had some great seafood. Language... More

Big compliments goes to our guide bryan carrate, who was very helpfull, very knoledgable and in for a joke once... More

This was kind of a bummer. It was raining most of the day, so the animals were not out. The vegetation is beautiful, but I had so hoped to see animals. We did see lots of butterflies, crabs, a crocodile, a python, and birds. Our guide was pretty terrible. I found out that most of the guides so a bunch... More

The best natural park of Costa Rica. It is located in the southern part of Osa peninsula and is characterised by an amazing forest, populated by a lot of animals such as spider monkeys, parriots, etc. I suggest to go with a guide, which can explain this amazing place
