We went for 3 days to Corcovado Park in January 2013 with Natu from Surcos Tours. The day before we started we met Natu in Puerto Jiménez to talk about what to expect, what to bring (or leave at home!)
From beginning till end we enjoyed Corcovado Park a lot! (even the road between Puerto Jiménez and Carate :-) ) No wonder why National Geographic calls it "the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity”. In those 3 days we walked more or less 50 km over beaches, rocks, through little rivers and ofcourse mainly through the tropical rainforest and saw a lot of animals!
Natu is an excellent guide. His passion and knowledge about the animals and plants are great and besides that, he is a nice person to be with. During the entire walk he made sure we were doing fine and also at the ranger station he is there for every question you have. The last day we started at 03.00 am from the Sirena station and around 06.00 we sat front row at the beach for a magical sunrise. We could ‘check’ a lot of animals from the list, but not yet the puma. Just a good reason to come back one day!
