An absolute must see!

I went to several different areas while in Costa Rica and almost didn't go to this one. If I had missed this then I would have missed the most awesome part of the trip. We saw... read more

I went to several different areas while in Costa Rica and almost didn't go to this one. If I had missed this then I would have missed the most awesome part of the trip. We saw so much wildlife! Unfortunately we missed seeing the puma, but people before us has spotted it 4 days in a row. The chances of... More

So many animals you won't believe your eyes! What a serene peaceful place. I recommend getting a guide they know how to "find" the animals and you will see things like never before- such as flying fish!! Yes see my photo!! It was insane!

Amazing fauna and flora, a great hike through the jungle to the waterfall and to the natural pool for a lovely cool down. Spotted many birds and mokeys.

Who even needs this review? It is a no brainer when it comes to deciding if you should do Corcovado park. Unbelievable in terms of unique animal sightings. If you have the opportunity - GO!! The 5km hike to Sirena Station is flat and easy going. We had children in our group and even with the humidity they had no... More

The biodiversity of this place, the remarkable Flora and fauna you see, the beauty of it are unique. My one piece of advice is, since you need to have a guide, pick an independent one who got great reviews on this website. Our B and B hosts kind of insisted we use the guide they set us up with--it's a... More

Our guide Milton was great. Knew about flora, fauna, and geology. it was the dry season, so no need for boots. I wore Keene hiking sandals. We were able to jump across most rivers. When you get back to your cabin do a thorough check for ticks. They are tiny and there a thousands of them in the dry season.

We did a day hike from Terry's look out inn at carate and it was great. Saw a puma and lots of wildlife tho saw most of it around the hotel too. Probably worth doing 2 day hike and staying a night in the park from what people told us. Stay at the Terry's look out in for a base... More

We have recently booked a one-day trip at OSAWILD agency in Puerto Jimenez incl. a guide for 2 persons - self-providing transportation for the guide with our rental car from nearby Puerto Jimenez to the park entrance. It has to be stated that the booking procedure, communication, customer care and finally the guide itself were all impeccably provided and acted... More

Corcovado is amazing thanks primarily to the fauna available in the park. It is really easy to see animals if you are not afraid of walking. Ants eaters, tapirs, aras....

The two of us did two day trips to Corcovado by boat from Drake Bay. The first was with our private guide from Surcos to Serena which took a bit over an hour and the second was eight of us with the lodge guide to San Pedrillo which is closer to Drake Bay and took only thirty minutes. The forest... More
