We ended here for lunch after a guided hike through the jungle that morning. This was a gourmet lunch with a diverse array of local fruit, fantastic chicken burritos AND tamales cooked in banana leaves. Some of the best food, not just Costa Rican food,...More

My wife and I just spent 2 nights/3 days at the Sirena Ranger Station with an excellent guide from Surcostours ("Marco").

We did 3 days 2 nights, starting from Carate and ending in Drake Bay. This duration of trip was perfect because it allowed for more time for day hikes around La Sirena, more time to absorb the wildlife, plants, forest, and ocean air. We worked...More

We landed from the sea and our first thought was that the area was going to be crowded with tourists as when we landed the beach was full. However the guides led us in different directions and soon we were just with our own small...More

Yesterday we arrived at the station after a heavy hiking tour from Caracas. It took 9 hrs of which 8 hours stiff walking, rather demanding because of the heat and high humidity. Incredible nature. After just in time the crossing of the Rio Claro lagune,...More

You will pay a lot of money (around 250$) and will experience a military barrack service: queues for poor dinner until the kitchen opens (once you finish dinner, separate on your own the dishes and the litter with established order), dirty communal bathrooms, and rude...More

A little disappointed in this - the whole guide experience was rushed, and then you get here where they are selling food and tourist stuff- kind of detracted from the National Park experience in our opinion.
