Corcovado National Park is remote, pristine, beautiful, and worth the effort to get there. Definitely worth the effort.

“Unique primary forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We took the boat at 5.30 from Drake Bay (arranged by Emilio at Drake Vista Lodge) and went with a speed boat along the coast for 1 1/4 hours. After the landing we had breakfast at the beach with our guide Faustino. Faustino then took as around the trails of the park. He was very knowledgable and we saw different kinds of monkies, crocodile, ant-eater, deer and of course a lt of different birds. The jungle was impressive! Then we had lunch before returning with the boat, very content!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Corcovado NP is considered the most deserted park and therefore the richest in animals. We saw there sea turtles, four types of monkets, ant eater, macao and many more... these were the most exciting days of out travel in Costa rica

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Unspoiled jungle. Saw many varieties of animals and plants. This is probably the most unique place I have ever visited. Virtually no bugs as you walk and enjoy the sights.
