They try to be good but...they dont have the background. Elsa was a bit arrogant with me. Our guide was unable to find animals while other guides could and showed them to ours. I think our guide had no background.

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.

Great touring through the Peninsula de Osa with Corcovado info center
Feb 2021 • Family
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).

Corcovado 3 Day Immersion - Spectacular
Feb 2021 • Friends
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.

A truly great experience! I went on a two day tour with overnight stay at Sirena station. Already prior the communication had been perfect, Elsa was very responsive, friendly and gave me all the information necessary. She even helped me to store my larger luggage and to book a boat back to Sierpe after the trip.

The tour itself was fantastic, our guide Oscar was super nice and passionate about sharing his love for nature. He knows the park really well and made sure we got to see as many animals as possible (and we did!). The group was small and I believe they tried to put people with similar hiking abilities together, so that it was a good fit for all.

Overall, I can highly recommend this experience. Thanks again!

We have taken two tours with Corcovado Info center, a day tour to Corcovado National Park with Melvin and snorkeling in Caño Island with Elsa.
Both of them were amazing.
Melvin and Elsa are cool, funny, very knowledgeable and helpful guides, they speak English and French besides Spanish.

Melvin explained a lot about flora and fauna, showed us beautiful birds which are basically impossible to detect for average people. It was an awesome tour with him!
Elsa for example, besides being professional in the tour, I was extremely seasick during snorkeling, and Elsa was super nice and kept her eyes on me. She also offered to call a taxi for us later. It was an awesome tour with her!

I would definitely recommend to book tours with Corcovado Info Center! Also, the guys driving the boat ( please forgive me for forgetting the names) were really funny and I always felt safe:)

amazing overnight trip to Corcovado
Jan 2021 • Solo
This trip was surely a once-in-a-lifetime-experience!!
As I was traveling alone I booked a tour with a private guide over the Corcovado Info Center and decided for the overnight tour to get the full jungle experience.
The communication over e-mail was super smooth and I got answers to all my questions very fast.
Even though the tour is quite pricey, it is absolutely worth it and I would always chose a private guide over a group tour again.
Walking through the forest just you and your guide, listening to all these jungle sounds, smelling the nature, discovering millions of details was the most authentic and mind-blowing experience I ever made in the nature.
I was pretty impressed by my guide Kenneth (the owner), who was not only able to answer all of my questions, but also has a unique talent to track every single animal in the area by just watching, smelling and even imitating the many different animal noises. After so many years of guiding he still seem amazingly exited about all the wildlife and nature, which was very infectious.
Sleeping in the bunk beds in Serena station was very enjoyable. The beds are cozy and have mosquito nets, so you can get a good night sleep while listening to the night sounds around you.
We did some good hours of hiking over the 2 days, but there was also always time to relax in between. The whole tour is very well balanced and perfectly structured and planned through, so I could enjoy every minute of it.
Thank you again for these magical two days!!

We had a great trip and perfect day with guide Kenneth, who knows a lot about the animals and also spots them all! We saw many animals thanks to Kenneth, which we wouldn’t have seen if we were on our own.

Amazing experience in the jungle
Dec 2020 • Couples
We did an overnight trip with Kenneth, firstly around Sirena station. This was absolutely amazing and we saw so much. Kenneth was so knowledgeable and with his telescope we were able to see so many birds and monkeys and also get great pictures. We then hiked from San Pedrillo ranger station for 3 hours through primary forest which was a totally different experience. We stayed overnight at Corcovardo’s Backyard which was beautiful and a great place to spend the night. There were some farm animals like chickens, cows and horses which we really enjoyed. There is a stream running around the property which was a great place to do a night walk. The food was also so good! With cheese made from the milk from the cows. We then hiked for 3 more hours the next day stopping at an incredible waterfall for a swim which was really something special. We had such a great experience and it was clear that Kenneth is so passionate about the area and all the creatures it contains.
