Corcovado National Park
Called the "crown jewel" of Costa Rica's national park system and the "most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity" by National Geographic, Corcovado National Park is a must see on your trip to Costa Rica and the Osa Peninsula.
Corcovado is home to all four types of monkeys in Costa Rica (howler, spider, white faced, and squirrel monkey), big cats like the jaguar and ocelet, anteaters, poison dart frogs, the tapir, and all kinds of birds, among many, many, more animals.
Here in Rancho Quemado, we can set you up everything you need for your visit to Corcovado National Park.
San Pedrillo Station:
From Drake Bay it is a 30 minute boat ride. From there, you get to enjoy a three hour hike into the jungle while seeing all kinds of animals, many of which only live on the Osa Peninsula. Eventually, after lunch, the visitor will arrive at the famous waterfall where they will be able to swim and reflect on the "Pura Vida" moment they are having. Afterwards, when ready, the group heads back to the beach where the boat will be waiting to take everyone back to Drake Bay.
Cost: $75 per person. Includes transportation, lunch, park entrance, and a local certified guide.
After a 60ish minute boat ride, the visitor will arrive at the Sirena Station in Corcovado National Park. This station is more remote than San Pedrillo, and as such, there is a greater chance to view more exotic wildlife such as the Taipir, monkeys, lots of birds, and much much more.
Cost: $85 per preson. Includes transportation, lunch, park entrance, and a local certified guide.
