My friend and I would like to take a guided tour of Corcovado and spend 1 night at the Sirena ranger station. We are currently in Nosara so would need help arranging a flight to Puerto Jimenez and then to Sirena, or to a location that would get us within hiking distance of that station. I've heard there is the option to fly into the airstrip or take a boat from (Bahia Drake?) We are on a bit of a budget and time crunch and would be most likely to do the cheapest option. The earliest we could fly to the Osa Peninsula is tomorrow, and then my flight leaves San Jose at 1 PM on Monday. So I'd probably have to leave the Osa on Sunday to be safe.
Can you please suggest what you think would be best and give a price quote? I hiked a different part of the park years ago and really want to share this with my friend. I think I started or ended in Carate and spent the night at the Los Patos ranger station. I heard Sirena is the best location to see animals from. Also, the last guide I went with, Oscar Cortes, helped carry our food, cooking fuel, and was so helpful with timing river crossings and making sure we didn't get stuck in the dark.
