I hiked in Corcovado on a 9-day vacation from San Francisco with my girlfriend. Her uncle owns a house in Uvita, so we picked Corcovado as a good destination in southern Costa Rica for a side trip, to make it a memorable experience.
Our uncle recommended we contact Osa Travel to book a guide. When I tried to book a hike, Western Union caused difficulty sending payment. So we arrived in Puerto Jimenez without a plan and we were only going to relax.
Felix Menocal was our contact. Felix had already paid for our park passes. We met just so I could repay him. With generosity, he agreed to arrange our hike the next day, even without previous booking.
Felix took myself and my girlfriend from Carate to Sirena in Corcovado park. His guidance gave us an amazing hike. With his over ten years of experience, I was very impressed by his skill to hear monkeys and other animals from far away, that I would never have seen without his help. Our hike included close up sightings of anteaters, tapirs, 3 species of monkeys, coatimundis, snakes, lizards, and all kinds of history and nature of the area. This is a really special experience you won’t find anywhere else.
