Just incredible!! We were not so sure about going to Corcovado, it was quite complicate to arrive and we had few days left of our hollidays. But since we got place in La Sirena we decided to go and see the park, and it became one of the best experiences of the hole trip!! Nito from surcotours was our guide... More

We did a day trip to Sirena Station with Mirador--a great tour company. We were worried that we wouldn't see much during a single day at Sirena, but we ended up having a fabulous time. With our tour guide, Rebecca, we saw a tapir, an ant eater, white lipped peccaries, and countless birds, reptiles, and insects! She was really knowledgeable... More

The Sirena ranger station is located in one of the truly wild places on this planet. The forest is bursting with life, the shoreline is dramatic, ocean waves pound the shoreline. It is a place where people need to be careful and truly respect nature, lest they fall victim to it. It is not an easy place to see--booking a... More

We did a day trip to Sirena Ranger Station out of Drake Bay and couldn't believe how much wildlife we saw! It really is a worthwhile trip in everyway, if you want to see wildlife. It is often referred to as a trek but it is more of a wildlife stroll! We started with a boat journey out of Drake... More

The location is amazing. It's basically in the heart of the most biologically diverse place on Earth, so the wildlife and plantlife viewing & photography opportunities are unparalleled. The Station is about 1 kilometer inland from the coast. The beach is fabulous, but not recommended for swimming due to strong rip currents and sharks. Sirena Ranger Station is seriously 'rough...

Go to Sirena for the flora and the fauna,. You will not be disapointed. It's better than you can imagine. The trails are great and easy to follow. Wildlife is everywhere.. Everywhere. The food is great and plentiful. The rooms, the beds and the showers are ...it''s not a five star hotel, but if you go to Sirena that's probably... More

We came here for one night through Punta Marenco Lodge in Drake Bay, and this was a great adventure for everyone in our party. There were nine of us, four adults, four girls (aged 13-15) and a 9-yr-old boy. Bring mosquito nets (if it's big enough, one could be enough for one entire bunk bed, upper and lower...) and some...

My wife and I had a great time at Sirena station after a fairly long (12 mile) hike along the beach and forest. The station's dorms are adequate, but bring a bug net and a liner to sleep in as the mattresses have seen better days! The day hikes from the station are quite nice and you have a pretty... More
