We had a fantastic three days in Corcovado national park. We fixed up a naturalist guide through the Surcostours agency. He was called Eric (nickname Forta) and was excellent. He knew every single species even just from its call or noise, and he was identifying things before we had even noticed there was something there. He also got up very early in the morning to take us out to see the dawn wildlife at the best time of day. We would thoroughly recommend this guide, and also the agency who organised it. The lady at Surcostours was called Ute and was very helpful and organised. Everything worked just as promised and she even helped us sort out the next stage of our trip with no extra charge.
After Corcovado we went to a private reserve called La Tarde. It's only an hour away, just out the back of Corcovado National Park. It's a really peaceful spot owned by a charming local man who switched his business from farming to ecotourism. It was the best place on our trip for seeing frogs, and it was also lovely staying in the rustic lodge and being fed by his family. Ute can help you organise this too.
This sort of trip is a great way to put your tourism money into the hands of local people.
