The Corcovado park is an experience we have always wanted to do. And I agree that they do not want to spoil the natural environment but this leaves them no excuse for cleanliness. The rooms are very dirty, I don't think they have been cleaned since they opened in 1974, all mosquito nets are torn. The bathrooms are cleaned once a day with a mop but by the end of the day the smell is just disgusting. We wanted to stay a few days to do as many trails as possible but the sleeping conditions are just dreadful.
The food is typical home made Costa Rican. Good!
The guide was very good Faustino!
When it was time to leave we went to the waiting spot to catch our boat back to Drakes Bay, to find 3 men trying to get provisions off a boat to get back to the station. 2 large Gas bottles as tall as a 12 year old, hundreds of bottles of water and I don't know how many cardboard boxes of milk and food. It was raining cats and dogs we were about 20 people waiting in the raining completely wet, we had to wait for them to offload as we were going to use the same boat to go back. All the boxes where soaking wet and a tractor came to bring the provisions back to the station. You would think after so many years they would set up a tent or some sort of coverage for situations like this, people waiting in the raining for over an hour and the provisions getting soaking wet. This area is also used for tourist that go on a one day hike and when they come back they have sandwiches waiting for them. We saw them eat in the pouring rain. Just doesn't make sense to me at all. Just a bit of common sense would make an experience so much more comfortable and enjoyable.
