Overview
For active adventurers keen to take on the challenge, this trek will bring you across the wilderness and mountains where the branches of tropical trees hang all around like cobwebs. This almost unknown landmass is part of the Osa Conservation Area, where you hope to catch a glimpse of rare wildlife and birdlife. Its habitats are elusive species of birds, mammals and reptiles. The park is largely untapped and is home to a great variety of exceptional trees and plant communities. Be awestruck with the inspiring mountain scenery in a thrilling and spectacular walk. The untamed trails of the dense evergreen and unaltered forest of Piedras Blancas National Park make this place a prime location for jungle trekking.

Guide was very helpful and found tons of animals around the place. The trip was easy and pleasant. The waterfall in the end of the hike was fascinating.

We spent three days in Corcovado national park, staying overnight at Sirena Station. The trip was arranged by Cindy at Tropical Escapade and our guide was Gerson. We had a fantastic time. The jungle was incredible and we saw so many animals (four kinds of monkeys, tapirs, anteaters, fer-de-lance snakes, poison dart frogs, you name it). But the best part was our guide Gerson. He not only knew the name and an interesting fact about seemingly every bird, bug and plant, but he made the trip fun and engaging for our diverse group that ranged from bird-obsessed adults to decidedly non-bird-obsessed teens. The food at the station was generous and delicious, and while the sleeping quarters were pretty tight overall the station was well-run and organized. Working with Cindy in advance to arrange the trip was also a great experience - she is super organized, answers questions patiently and had the lowest price of the three companies that I got quotes from. If I could give them six stars I would!

The trip involved a hike through the forest up to the top of a large canyon, and then a descent through the canyon using ropes and harnesses to get down over three waterfalls, plus jumping/swimming/hiking to get through the canyon in other places. Fernando and Cindy were great guides and we felt safe and in good hands. The jungle was absolutely beautiful and on the hike up Fernando and Cindy told us all sorts of interesting facts about the wildlife and plants and many of their traditional uses by people in the area. Our two teen sons had never done anything like this before and really felt like they'd completed an amazing adventure.

Nice hike, arduous at times but very rewarding. The guide was very knowledgeable about the ecology of the area. Be prepared to pay extra for the boat ride back to Golfito. Guess I missed that one when I booked it.

We are a family with four children, between 7-14 years. In other words, it is not quite easy to find good and fun tours that are suitable for everyone. Cindy has been very helpful and extremely good at finding suggestions and options that suited us perfectly. Always very good informaton. We did several tours with Tropical Escapades and all the guides held the highest class. We can really recommend Tropical Escapades.
