There is certainly a lot of questions whether a corcovado tour one day option would be enough to see a lot of wildlife or if more days are required.
I would say that it is all a matter of luck and perspective since wildlife is unpredictable and it could be that you walk for the first 30 minutes and you get to see several species of animals if you are lucky.
Other point would be leaving Corcovado National Park thinking about that it would have been worth staying longer in the park to check that monkey well, to get a nice picture or just to see more therefore we have options to stay longer.
