Corcovado Guide for Day Hike

I've heard you need a guide to hike in Corcovado. Any recommendations?

We want to do day hike. We'll be staying in Puerto Jimenez at Agua Dulce.

Ballardo Diaz, who participates in this forum as Jaguarman and has a Facebook page, leads that hike regularly, as does his friend Nito of Surcostours. You'll want to start from PJ before dawn for the best wildlife-viewing opportunities.

I am late in my reply, highly recommend Erick as a guide for Corcovado. He has lived in Carate all his life, so knowledgeable, fun, considerate, willing to do whatever it takes to create the experience. contact:

From Puerto Jimenez, honestly is best to not hike Corcovado but rather hike in the Matapalo area about 45 minutes south of Puerto Jimenez. Puerto Jimenez is not conveniently located for single-day hikes in Corcovado. The wildlife in Matapalo will be just about as good as you would see in Corcovado--we saw a puma in the Matapalo area this past February.
