I have traveled to many destinations in the world, but this was truly an adventure I will never forget. Stayed in tent camps in Africa while doing photographic tours of wild animals of the Serengeti , but Corcovado was even more remote and beautiful . Everyday was an adventure and the setting is so restful and peaceful. Full of wildlife... More

I went there with some friends for three days and I just had the best time I've had in a long time. It's a beautiful, pristine natural playground. One of the days we were down there we went snorkeling to this beautiful beach and saw all kinds of coral and fish. But for sure the best part was when we... More

I could not quite believe my luck when I arrived here. My tent was a perfect haven, with the sound of the waves right outside. The beaches were stunning and isolated, with more scarlet macaws and monkeys than people. The sunsets were unbelievable and we had the option of using the sea kayaks to get an even better view. The... More

My husband and I had been here before and could not wait to come back because we had such a great experience last time. I will say we were not as impressed. Larry wast here at the beginning and while he was there the food was fantastic and service was ok. There was very large group and we were just... More

Thank you for the comments. I am surprised and sad you did not enjoy the stay with us. Indeed, some of the organization for the snorkeling tour did not go well, it is a total exception though, we operate this tour almost daily and it is among the two best tours in the area, as you can see reading other...

I don't review much but felt the need to do so after my recent experience at the Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp. This was our second trip to the tent camps. We loved our first trip a few years ago. Last time we went 2yrs ago the place was well staffed, so much so that the group we arrived with on... More

Thank for the useful comments. Indeed, since your visit, the tents have undergone maintenance, both corrective and preventive. Actually, on our website, if you click on TENT CAMP you can see the tents as they are right now. We did have some problems in the organization during the CANO ISLAND TOUR, but that was an exception, I guarantee. As to... More

By now, Eric and Larry are history, sacked on the day Eric reported the robbery of the hotel safe (happend in the night of Feb 16th) with ALL valuables of an Austrian / German travel group (World Insight) plus an American and French couple. Upon introduction to the camp Eric pointed out, that beaches in Costa Rica are public good... More

We are very sorry for the situation. It is something that has never happened before in over 20 years of serving literally thousands of clients from all over the world that have come to our pristine region. Crime unfortunately is something present all over the world, and it has come to Costa Rica as well, although Costa Rica is still... More

Eric and Larry gave us a hearty welcome. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, and unique. We spent time hanging out in the hammocks, swimming in the beach, snorkling at cano island and the corcovada tour. My fiance and I truly enjoyed our stay and became friends with many of the other guests during our stay there. Every night our dinner... More

This has been my second visit to Corcovada Adventure Tent Camp, and it was once again amazing! This time around I finally got to meet the owner, Larry. He is a delightful individual full of stories and helpful information. Every time I encountered him, he asked my girlfriend and I how we were enjoying ourselves and pointing out things of... More

Worth every penny! Great staff! Good food. Gorgeous location. Wake up to monkeys and the beach on your front door step. Amazing hiking nearby. They arrange awesome tours. I felt totally safe as a female solo traveller. I promise you won't regret this (unless you hate being in nature and only want a 5 star hotel).

I stayed as part of a group for 4 days, 3 nights recently and overall it was a huge let down, especially after our last lodge. Ok so the setting is stunning and the staff is friendly... but the bathrooms were hardly clean and always smelled like used toilet paper, when they flushed. There were bugs EVERYWHERE, and while i...
