CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK


Corcovado National Park is found in the Osa Peninsula to the southeast of Costa Rica in the province of Puntarenas. Corcovado holds the largest primary forest of the American Pacific, along with one of the few remnants of sizeable tropical rainforest in the world. Corcovado is home to an estimated 2.5% of the planet's biodiversity, with 13 different types of ecosystems, this is the ideal place to observe the country's most endangered species, such as the Tapir (Danta), the Scarlet Macaw, Squirrel monkeys (Tití  monkey) and collared peccaries.
In order to enter to the Corcovado National Park, you must make reservations in advanced (our office takes care of this). The costs of entrance, lodging and food (optional) have to be paid directly to the office of the park by making a deposit to their bank account in the National Bank (our office can also take care of this).

Entrance options

Hiking
There are 2 entrances to the park, which are the most common ones: La Leona (southeast area of the park) and Los Patos (north area of the park)

  • La Leona: First, you must get to the town of Carate, you can do this by public transport ($9pp) or by private transport ($90 max. 8 pax), leaving from Puerto Jiménez. You have to cross various rivers and little streams, walk a couple of hours through the beach, as well as other 4 to 5 hours on the trails that go through the forest. It all sums up to a 7-9 hours walk and a total of 20 Km.
  • Los Patos: The only access to Los Patos Station is with a taxi from La Palma ($60) or PJ ($90 ) which goes all the way to the station, leaving from La Palma. Once in the station you walk on the trails through primary and secondary forest for 7-9 hours crossing various rivers and creeks for a total of 24 Km. In the rainy season this trail gets very muddy, so you definitely have to bring some good hiking shoes or rubber boots.

By Boat
The easiest and cheapest way to enter Sirena by boat is from Drake Bay. To get to Drake you must take the public bus which leaves from La Palma every day at 11:30am and at 4:30pm. Once in Drake you catch the boat that leaves almost every day at 6am from Agujitas beach and has a cost of $30pp.

By Airplane
There’s only one airline that enters directly to Sirena Biological Station, called Alfa Romeo. The cost of the collective flight is $90pp and it can take up to 5 persons. If you want to have a private flight the cost is $400.
