Carlos Pacheco took us on a day tour to Corcovado National Park. We searched the Drake Bay area for the best way to experience the most bio-intense place on the planet and we discovered this diamond in the rough tour guide. Carlos does 2 of the ranger stations in the same day.. The secondary jungles of the Sirena Ranger station where the animals were the most present and then the ancient primary jungles of the San Pedrillo Ranger Station. We arrived in Sirena at least an hour before the other local hotels arrived and this allowed for us to be among the first visitors of the day.. We saw countless animals and Carlos was very well educated on all of the species. After 10AM the sun grew very hot as the secondary jungles provide little protection from the sun. We ate a quick brunch and took the boat ride to the shady primary jungles. Along the way we saw humpback whales and 2 species of dolphins. The San Pedrillo Ranger Station was our favorite of the 2 stations and it seemed as if there were too many fascinating things to discuss.
After such an outstanding tour to Corcovado we took the advise of Carlos Pacheco and stayed a night on his property that is positioned approximately 1km from Corcovado. He has a new platform tower that stands 50 feet above the ground. Being this high allowed us to feel as though we actually were part of the canopy.. The birds and monkeys traveled passed us throughout the evening into the night and then the traffic and sounds of nature only increased when the morning came.. Carlos took us through the primary jungles on his property until we reached a river that lead us to the beach. The river had numerous beautiful waterfalls. We floated down the river until we reached the river mouth at the beach.. From there we walked along a beach trail that took us along the beach line back to Drake Bay. I counted 21 sandy beaches along the way. We still haven't had the time to go through all the pictures that we took..
Carlos was a very knowledgeable guide and made our journeys so much fun with his playful personality. He definitely loves what he does!
