Just got back from a great four days at Sirena — made better by Bolivar, an excellent guide who not only has tremendous knowledge of the area, but also has a great love for the land and animals of Corcovado. I went to Sirena for the tapirs and wasn't disappointed. We saw a total of 5 different tapirs in the... More

My friend and I spent two nights at the Sirena Ranger Station. Our guide took care of all the details. His name is Alvaro Montoya and his phone number is 8814 7663. We got his name and number from James Kieser's book on Costa Rica. Alvaro purchased reservations for our stay at Sirena plus a couple of meals even before... More

This is the only place to be (literally) within 20 km. Jungle is the reason and humid and hot is the season. WOW

My husband, children (11 and 8yrs.) and I camped on the platform for 3 days/2 nights with Sabena(sp?), our guide through Corcovado Info Center out of Drake Bay (Kenneth Mora is the owner of Corcovado Info Center- highly recommended). We were there at the end of December (dry season). This is a hard trip- lots of walking, camping accommodations, cold... More

My husband had been here three years ago, and wanted me to experience Corcovado and Sirena Ranger Station. We came in and out by boat, arranged by Kenneth Mora (who I highly recommend), guided by Jairo. The station and its accommodations are primitive, at best, but, hey, there's wifi and running water. The trails around the station are generally pretty... More

Camped on the platform in a tent- foam is provided but it is still hard. Very noisy - had the loudest snorer EVER that kept everyone awake all night. A couple (unbelievably) brought their two infants in and camped with them. They cried at night, of course. When we got there another couple was moving their tent to the grass... More

Only reason I have not given this excellent is we did not spend too long here. Nice information point and another incredible setting.

We came here in March 2013 and I only just realised I haven't left a review despite it being the highlight of our 4 week Costa Rica adventure- it's the part we find ourselves day dreaming over now! We done a 2 night trip with Kenneth Mora who was a great guide, based right on the beach at Drake Bay.... More

<I have to be honest and say that we have been there in 2011, not in 2013, but TripAdvisor won't allow me to set that date. Other than that, everything is completely true> My wife and I spent 3 days of our honey moon hiking in the Corcovado National Park, and sleeping two nights in the Sirena Ranger Station. There's...

we stayed one night in the ranger station at Sirena and had a two days hike under the guidance of the best guide ever Nito Castro. We camped in a tent under an open roof on a platform in the ranger station and experienced the sounds of the jungle in the night. We had close encounters with nearly all animals,... More
