Within the past 12 months my family of 3 made two separate DAY trips to the Corcovado Sirena Station-both at Christmas time. Many travellers with limited time in the Osa Peninsula wonder whether they should travel to Corcovado National Park from Drake Bay or from...More

Corcovado was a very important part of our 5 week trip to Latin and South America. After hearing from friends who had been here and reading the reviews we were developing huge expectations. We hiked from Carate to Sirena, stayed three nights and hiked back....More

All i can say is hire a guide to take you through the park and stay at the central lodge. Nothing can compare. It was the most magical experience of my life hands down.

My family of 5 , ages 22-58, toured the park in June 2018. We were led by Mike Boston of Osa Aventura out of Puerto Jimenez, on a 3 day visit in the jungle. This review is to highlight the guide's expertise and kindness. Mike...More

I spend there 3 nights at Sirena Station and one night at San Pedrillo. If I could I would spend more. First please consider that you must walk from the boat to the beach approx. 50 - 100 meters through the see. So do not...More

Corcovado is an amazing place to visit. The trail from Carate runs next to the beach so there’s no way of getting lost. The abundance of flora and fauna is overwhelmingly good. The trail could be wet or muddy but that’s part of the fun....More

An exceptional park. Corcovado National Park is the biggest rainforest of Costa Rica and relatively untouched (compared to others in Costa Rica). Most people (as we) take a daytour, but next time (if time permits) I would like to take a 3 day tour including...More

This is a great park, there's simply so much wildlife here. We did 2 trips into the park, one just over the border to see the waterfall and pool, the other into Sirena. Sirena was definitely better in terms of wildlife. We saw 2 tapirs,...More

I felt completely safe checking into the ranger station. We were prepared and ready for adventure. You must see at least a small fraction of this National Park and all of its animal life.

We had a fantastic hike in the national park with our guide Cynthia and a lovely visit to Cano Island. We saw families of spider and howler monkeys, lots of interesting insects and vegetation, and a beautiful waterfall. Would highly recommend.

if we could avoid going with a guide, we would. It was a bit rushed. But the whole experience of taking that boat down to this place... it is just amazing. Wonderful to just soak in all that wildness, all that jungle. We saw Tapir,...More

I have been to both places. Tortuguero is more eclectic and like being in the Caribbean. Corcovado is more of being in the wild- jungle and many animals. If you like being out in the jungle- you’ll have fun in Corcovado... More
