An exceptional park. Corcovado National Park is the biggest rainforest of Costa Rica and relatively untouched (compared to others in Costa Rica). Most people (as we) take a daytour, but next time (if time permits) I would like to take a 3 day tour including...More

Local guides very motivates. Groups smaller than usual. A very good option for tour of Corcovado. They go more into the jungle and they explain you a lot of interesting things.

Costa Rica has got its eco-tourism priorities right and Corcovado is an excellent example of how the country is re-claiming its rain forests. Trees in this area were cut down by farmers but the jungle is now being allowed to grow back. It is home...More

Trip report pt1- Solo female traveller- Drake Bay/Corcovado (5 Replies)
Here is part 1 of my trip report. I'm in my 30s, I travelled alone, and it’s my second time to Costa Rica. My itinerary included land in San Jose - Drake Bay - Uvita - San Gerardo de Dota. This was a 13 day trip. Costa Rica is a lovely country, safe and has been great for me as a solo (and anxious) traveller, with only a few bumps in the road. I’ll do the trip report in 3 parts, but some parts will be more detailed than others. Day 1- Arrival San Jose I arrived at San Jose around...More

Thanks for writing such a detailed report, looking forward to part 2. You've helped me decide about spending a night at Sirena - smelly tents and 3am alarm calls , no thanks! LOL Hopefully we'll see enough wildlife on a day trip. Can I ask about the boats you went on? were there plenty of life vests?, did the crew seem safety conscious? we'll be doing the boats from Sierpe, to Sirena and to Cano Island and we have one non swimmer so I'm hoping it's all positive.

Sirena full (4 Replies)
We are visiting Drake bay on the 9-19th Jan and trying to book an overnight stay at Sirens. Kenneth at Corcovado Info Center has mailed me back to say that Sirena station is full the night we want to do it. He has suggested staying at San pedrillo overnight but still visiting sirena on the first day of the trip. Can anyone advise me whether we should find an alternative date or will San pedrillo/sirena combination provide the same experience? Thanks, Simon

They are basically the same, the difference being, Sirena you need to hike to usually via the Loop, and out the south entrance La Leona/Carate. Are you in Drake Bay I assume, and not Pt Jimenez? From DB, it is easier and wiser, due to ocean and winds, to just go to SP, overnight there, then return. The animal spotting is basically early morning (5am to 8am) and evening before dark, otherwise, the are staying cool and not active. Unless you are hiking the Loop, 2 nights/3 days, the...More
