Osa Peninsula Corcovado - Pura Vida!
Jan 2021
I visited Corcovado National Park in January and I was not disappointed. While not the easiest place to get to, it was definitely worth the light plane ride and wet landing via boat to get there. Its remote location facilitates animal sightings and allows you to spend time observing flora and fauna and just reconnecting with nature. I truly did not want to leave this place. Costa Rica and particularly Corcovado lived up to the hype.

Perfect tour guide for a perfect rainforest paradise
Jun 2021 • Solo
I absolutely loved it here. A dream for hikers and nature enthusiasts alike. Although 99% of the tour companies will charge a large amount, I went with Ulices ugarte matarrita (can find him on Facebook, or TripAdvisor as corcovadoguiacr). Let's just say some tour companies were charging me double what he was, and I was his only client for the 2 days I spent with him! So a private tour guide for an amazing price.
Ulices is a wildlife genius. We encountered some dangerous wildlife (which I absolutely loved!!), He knew how to handle every situation. I met other people on the tours and they weren't as lucky as us on what they saw. Crocodiles, venomous snakes, non venomous snakes, all the species of monkeys that can be found in Costa Rica, tapir, some wild pigs (which I loved because they can attack).
I highly recommend some good footwear for hiking. My feet were blistered after the first day, the second day was a 9 hour hike, so I was in some discomfort during that last hike.
Ulices isn't a big tour company. He's just a tour guide making a living (a very experienced guide I may add). And for me I'd prefer to give my money to a local rather than a company that has loads of clients and larger fees.

Wonderful adventure!

This is a beautiful park- we hiked in instead of taking the boat, which was a strenuous yet rewarding adventure- lots of wildlife, from anteaters to tapir to sloths , a paradise for bird lovers and photographers! !

Its area where you can only stay one place and feel the jungle or you can walk any trail to observe nature. wildlife is just to see , no need to search very hard. can see many birds like tucans, can see monkeys playing they games on the trees, can see butterflies and more

Corcorvado Park Guide
Dec 2020
Our tour guide Randall Alberto was awesome. We did 2 single day tours of the park. He spotted tons of animals that we would never had seen without him. Four types monkeys, a hard to find sloth, lots of beautiful birds, interesting insects and fauna. He has extensive knowledge of the park and it's history. A very nice gentleman that speaks good english. He does set quite a pace, but that was good as we covered alot of ground . He even set us up on a fishing trip for yellowtail. Definitly the man to contact of you go to Puerto Jimenez.

Lots of monkeys, no tapirs
Dec 2020 • Couples
The wildlife at the is park is excellent. However, tapirs only come out at night. I thought they would be all over. I was disappointed with that. We saw 3 types of monkeys, an ant eater and a ton of birds. It is quite a bit of walking and the animals are not as active when it gets hot. I thought the tour could of ended at least an hour ago earlier.

Magnificent Place-Do Not Miss
Dec 2020 • Couples
We did a 1/2 day tour of the park. We saw dozens of animals including 4 types of monkeys, cuati and an anteater. The park is teeming with wildlife. I’d recommend drinking an electrolyte replacement drink along the trail. My husband and I are both avid hikers but are not used to the extreme humidity and wish we had taken some type of sports drink with us. Water didn’t quite cut it.

Carlos Corcovado Guide
Sep 2020
We spent a whole day with Carlos in the Corcovado National Park and it was by far the most challenging but also most interesting hike we did in Costa Rica.

Carlos is a patient, knowledgeable and entertaining guide. I can warmly recommend him to anyone who visits Drake Bay or Corcovado National Park. You can write him on carlosguiacorcovado@gmail.com or call him +506 6013 8027

Great Wildlife Experience
Nov 2019
A terrific way to experience real wildlife in Costa Rica. The boat trips to there can get intense but it is absolutely worth it. Had an amazing time there. Highly recommend going with Osa Great Adventure as your tour operator when you go!

Wow!

This is the place in the world, that holds most biodiversity in the planet!!! You will be very close to wild animals, is like a zoo but without railings. You literally can’t get something similar in other country. The visit is totally an unforgettable experience.
