Corcovado Tour

With Wildlife Observation Experts

Corcovado Tour is the activity that every nature lover wants to do in Costa Rica, and not only nature lovers, but photographers from all over the world, biologists, and scientists who want to study, observe and live the experience of being in such a majestic habitat.

Here we show you the options you have to visit the Corcovado National Park.


Each option will take you to a full description of the activity, inclusions, recommendations, and prices.

We have the right to 10 spaces for each Ranger Station in Corcovado National Park, However, we do not get them until we request the spaces with the information of our clients, which means that the full name and the passport number of each participant are in the reservation. This can not be modified, and only the ones on the reservation can participate in the tour.

The competition for the spaces is high and Corcovado National Park takes wildlife conservation very seriously, so, they only give around 80 spots per day for overnights.

It is advised to book at least one month in advance during high season, as the number of spaces is limited and a lot of people are booking in advance, sometimes one year ahead, we would say that a month and a half in advance is not perfect, but there will be good chances to get the spots for your Corcovado Tour.

Don’t worry if you are against the clock, we will do our best and try to get those spaces, in this case, we advise creating a window of dates so that if we are denied the first date, we can try the other ones.

We do not charge until the activities are confirmed, and the amount charged and advanced will all depend on how long ahead you book the tour and the kind of Corcovado tour you are booking.

We are located in the Tropical Rainforest, it is very normal to do the activities under some rain, however, we will decide when the activity must be canceled or moved because of the weather.

It is possible to visit La Leona Station without a guide, however, it is not recommended. The park is home to beautiful creatures, and some of them can turn aggressive; a puma could attack, for example. It has happened a few times and luckily a tour guide was there at all the events to protect the travelers.

It is worth visiting Corcovado National Park if you are into wildlife observation, and walking through one of the most remote and wild places  in the world.

A lot of people will say that the dry season is the best season to visit Corcovado National Park, however, I, as some who has been there since 2008 I can say that the whole year is a great moment to do a Corcovado Tour. 

The best way to visit Corcovado National Park will depend on your interests. If you are into wildlife observation but don’t want to walk for 8 hours from one point to another, I would recommend visiting by boat from Drake Bay, Puerto Jiménez, Uvita, or Sierpe.

If you are into walking long distances and want to make it challenging, I recommend starting from Drake Bay, or Puerto Jiménez.

It all depends on the route you choose to do a Corcovado Tour. The way from Carate to Sirena is partly done on the beach and another part is done in the forest, some rivers must be crossed and during the rainy season, they can get deep and with strong currents.

La Leona Station is very flat, and it is not necessary to bring rubber boots during the wet season, since the trail by the beach

It is easier to do Los Patos starting in Los Patos Station and finishing in Sirena Station since you come from a higher elevation to a lower elevation. Los Patos can get muddy during the wet season.

This should not be a problem for those that want to visit Sirena Station, since the boat service runs almost every day from Drake Bay, and from Puerto Jiménez. 

Sirena Station is mostly flat, however, it can get very muddy during the wet season.

San Pedrillo Station is a mix of flat terrain with some trails going uphill and downhill, it can get muddy during the wet season.

It all depends, some companies offer prices that are below the price that most companies charge, however, they do not include the same, and you will end up paying way more because once you paid, you’ll find out many things were not included.

My advice would be not to focus so much on the lowest price but focus on what you are getting, once you know what you are getting for a price and what you are not getting, it will be time to decide who you would like to go with.

It is possible to get to Carate and from Carate you can walk for one Hour to La Leona Station. This is the closest you can get by car to a station in the park open to the public.

Some people get to the very entrance of Los Patos, however, they cross a river some 20 times and the car suffers because of the terrain, this one is done during the driest part of the year.

Corcovado National Park hosts 2.5% of the biodiversity of the world and has the highest density of wildlife per square hectare. You will not see such proud guides in any other place in Costa Rica, since this is the place a naturalist tour guide wants to work because of the many species that Corcovado National Park hosts and the high chances to encounter wildlife.
