Following our 5-day stay at Drake bay, I can warmly recommend Elsa and her team of local, knowledgeable and so friendly guides. The diving, hiking or wildlife sighting were perfectly organised, schedules accurately respected, and everything at fair rates. Elsa responded within minutes to our messages and showed also geat improvisation skills, when needed, in any of three languages (Spanish/French/English).

Myself and group of 7 other friends booked an all-inclusive tour (2d/3nt) with Kenneth and had an incredible time. Kenneth was extremely knowledgeable of all the wildlife we saw on our mangrove tour from Sierpe to Corcovado NP. He was super thorough with the schedule each day and made sure everyone was well-fed at each meal, while also catering to vegan diets. He made sure we had the best weather for each excursion, which meant switching the itinerary but it worked out for the best, as we had gorgeous weather while snorkeling at Caño Island. He even voluntarily drove us to see the bioluminescence our last night. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip and would highly recommend booking with Kenneth!

I just returned from spending 3 full days of various tours with Kenneth, the owner of Corcovado Info Center. My 13 yo son and I did an overnight in Corcovado (a fantastic hiking experience with night hike and eco-lodge on the edge of the park), mangrove tour, and Cano Island snorkeling.

Kenneth is the perfect guide. He knows the area, the people, he's responsible with key details, kept us safe, extremely knowledgable, positive, fun, understanding, patient, and kind. I'd book with Corcovado Info Center without hesitating.

We had to make a few adjustments to our plan because of the the park COVID restrictions which changed last minute and other details...Kenneth has spent his entire life in that region (his father was one of the park rangers), so he gets around with other locals like he is the mayor of the town. Definitely a benefit for negotiating anything that is needed, especially any last minute adjustments.

Kenneth's English language is perfect and I can't recommend him more. BTW....getting to Drake Bay from Sierpe can be a little tricky with the public ferry. I hired Kenneth with his own boat to pick us up and drop us off directly in Sierpe and give us a mangrove tour on the way. I was surprised at how much we saw on the mangrove tour. It was worth it. Plus having Kenneth just manage all the details (even our rooms in Drake Bay) from start to finish for that leg of our journey was very helpful.

We booked a private tour to Corcovado park with Kenneth and were very disappointed with the guide that he provided us. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and we ultimately felt cheated from having an experienced guide. The woman who was paired with us was perfectly nice and able to point out animals, but she was mostly quiet during the trip and unable to provide background information or particular insight about the biodiversity, surroundings, and animals. She would oftentimes ask other guides what they were looking at and latch onto their groups. We would ask her simple questions which she would mostly have one word or no response to. We would walk around the park jealous of the other tours who had knowledgeable guides imparting fascinating facts to their groups. Definitely SKIP AND NOT BOOK with this tour company. It was really frustrating and disappointing. Corcovado park is an incredible and rare place but to fully grasp its importance its essential to go with a good guide which we were robbed of.

I am not sure if Kenneth is managing the entire company on his own but if so he probably needs to hire some office staff. We were trying to arrange a 3 day tour and his communication lacked entirely. Even when I tried to pay I could not get ahold of him. Overall he was not very helpful or responsive. Given the fact that only so many people are allowed in per day it made it stressful waiting to hear and not being able to book to confirm the rest of my travel plans.

IF you choose Drake Bay - choose Corcovado info center

It is really hard to put in words all positive emotions which I received during the time I used services which Corcovado Info Center and it's team provided.

I had a overnight tour in Corcovado National Park with excellent quide Jairo. We saw a lot of different animals and the guide was very knowledged and attentive.

I also took a Mangrove tour on Sierpe River which was guided by Kenneth. Excellent experience. Kenneth always asked what I expect, what I want to see and how do I feel myself. He was super caring, always present and goal-oriented.

But the best experiences were ofcourse snorgeling and fishing which I had at least 3 different times. All of them were in different places and with different targets. Our Dream-team made everything to catch different type and sizes of Fish. The team really cared to give the best experience.

I spend in Drake Bay all together 14 nights and best time of it was the time spent with Corcovado Info Center and its team.

My boyfriend and I did the overnight tour at the Sirena Ranger Station in Corcovado National Park. We had an amazing time there with our guide Kenneth! He was very knowledgeable, kind, and funny! Kenneth has an amazing talent of mimicking animal calls, which brings in all the beautiful birds and animals. I would highly recommend this tour with Kenneth, he is the best guide out there!

Excellent service & very helpful staff.
We had Kenneth mora whose knowledge of the local flora/fourna and animals was second to none.
Went to cano Island snorkeling & fishing with Kenneth & had an excellent time, he certainly went the extra mile to ensure everyone caught fish. So much so I went fishing a second time & was not disappointed, highly recommend!

My friend and I were traveling to Corcovado for two nights and Melvin Cruz was our tour guide. Absolutely recommend him as the guide makes or breaks the experience. As a side effect of COVID, tourism in Corcovado Parque Nacional was inherently lower but for our purposes, that was a huge benefit. The first day we were lumped in with a 4 some from France. Melvin spoke to them in French then repeated it verbatim in English for myself and my friend (I’m American and my friend is German). The French only did the half day tour. After that, it was my friend, Melvin and me. Extraordinary. We were quick to establish a great rapport with Melvin.

He is a professional ornithologist (bird watcher) so he can provide the names, specs and other info about any bird just simply by hearing its call as we walked. Often within seconds of hearing a call, his telescope would be set up and focused on the bird somewhere far enough off that i never would have even known it would be there.

The 3 days we spent there felt just like being in summer camp. It was great! And the food was surprisingly delicious. Melvin knew just what we would want to see/do and thus he made the entire trip unforgettable. Professional, nerdy in his own right (birds are his passion) and relatable.

My family and I had a chance to experience the Corcovado Extreme tour through the Corcovado information center and it was fabulous. With the closure of the San Pedrillo ranger station, the trip was slightly altered from the website description, in that it turned into a moderatlely strenuous backpacking trip after a day of ambling at the Sirena Station. Once we took the boat to San Pedrillo station we had a roughly 10km hike to a beautiful hostel (complete with cold beer) just outside the borders of Corcovado Park. Then another hike the next day, complete with a stop at one of the best waterfall swimming holes I have ever been to, for our truck pickup at Los Planos for the return to Drake Bay. Our guide, Donnie, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend this trip if you want to be truly immersed in the Corcovado Experience and if you don't mind doing some walking.
