It was outstanding 9-hour walk with plenty of animals and plants we've seen and lots of interesting facts we've got to know. Our guide, Pablo, seems to know all about Corcovado and love his job.

Took a day trip tour to La Sirena and saw so many animal, it was amazing! Monkeys (3 species), caïman, toucan, tapir, plenty of birds (even an humming bird in it's nest!)... Wow!

My husband and I returned to Costa Rica in March to check out the Osa Peninsula. You have to have a guide to explore the Corcovado National Park. I did a lot of online research and ended up choosing Surcos Tous. We requested Nito as our guide based on multiple excellent reviews. His sister Ute was extremely prompt, helpful, and... More

I would like to offer a unique perspective here. First, the Osa Peninsula is fabulously beautiful. Having dense, steamy rainforest abutting the wild Pacific ocean creates a spectacular scene. You cannot beat the setting. There are almost no people there, which also adds to the serenity. Most national parks have some cars and lots of tours running through. You can... More

Corcovado National Park is huge and taking a day trip to Sirena Ranger Station is really just scratching the surface of an amazing place. And being able to spot animals and birds is more about luck than anything. Took a day trip and we saw birds with their babies, monkeys, insects and animals such as a tapir and sloths. They... More

The Corcovado National Park is wonderful. There are many different animals and plants, which can be seen. We walked from Puerto Jimenz to the Sirena ranger station. And we stayed there for two nights. Walking next to the ocean and through the rain-forest was breathtaking. But please be aware about the tour guide, which was with us! His name is... More

The wildlife!!! What an experience. We saw so many interesting and strange animals. Our tour guide made monkey sounds to make the howler monkeys howl. We saw a tapir and other wild pigs. Then there were bull sharks wading in the brackish water!!! Definitely worth the visit.

Such a diversity of bird and animal life accessible from the trails. Our five hour trek stretched to ten as we marvelled at the various sights ranging from a 4m crocodile to a pair of roosting king vultures
