join a group for a 3 day hike in Corcovado with guide

Hello!

I am heading solo to the Osa Peninsula around November 12, 2012 and am looking for a group to join who has a guide for a 3 day hike of Corcovado. Is anyone interested in having me join?

Or if any other solo traveler would like to book a guide together please let me know! Thanks!

I promise not to lag behind!

in my experience, it seems that people try to put a group together online but the posts don't get much responses.

My advise would be to arrange your park permits in advance so you don't get shut out.

If you don't get people to join your hike via online forums, once you get to Puerto Jimenez, visit the ranger station near the airport and ask them if they know of groups being organized.

If they don't know, then ask around at some of the lodges and restaurants and at the internet cafes. Often guides or tour operators are hanging around these places waiting for clients, and often a impromptu group can be put together.

Pura Vida, and enjoy the Osa!

If you haven't already, you might try posting on the Lonely Planet ThornTree forum. I found hiking partners into Corcovado that way, so you never know.
