“Unique primary forest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We took the boat at 5.30 from Drake Bay (arranged by Emilio at Drake Vista Lodge) and went with a speed boat along the coast for 1 1/4 hours. After the landing we had breakfast at the beach with our guide Faustino. Faustino then took as around the trails of the park. He was very knowledgable and we saw different kinds of monkies, crocodile, ant-eater, deer and of course a lt of different birds. The jungle was impressive! Then we had lunch before returning with the boat, very content!

“Our greatest experience in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

Corcovado NP is considered the most deserted park and therefore the richest in animals. We saw there sea turtles, four types of monkets, ant eater, macao and many more... these were the most exciting days of out travel in Costa rica

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Unspoiled jungle. Saw many varieties of animals and plants. This is probably the most unique place I have ever visited. Virtually no bugs as you walk and enjoy the sights.

“Plan Ahead”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We spent 8 hours driving to this park only to realize that we weren't going to be able to get in. Apparently, you have to reserve online and then make a reservation and do some other funky things. I hear it is amazing. Just make sure you do your research.
