Corcovado Jan/Feb or March/April

I have always envisaged visiting Corcovado early in the year in the dry season. However, due to work commitments it is looking likely March/April 2013 is my best option otherwise I must wait until 2014.

I realise I will get wet as I'm visiting a rainforest with potential river crossings. However, I wan't to minimise this as much as possible.

Would you recommend late March as a good time to visit or is it getting too close to the wet season?

Thanks in advance

We've been in Corcovado in August and had 4 sunny dry days. Moral of the story is the weather is unpredictable. However there is no monsum time so your chances to get fair weather are good.

March is the tail end of the dry summer season. While its impossible to predict the weather, I'd suggest hiking in Corcovado in March without question.

Pura Vida,
