CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK TOUR
Situated just 20-30 minutes by boat from Aguila de Osa Inn, Corcovado National Park is world renown as one of Costa Rica’s crown jewels of rich diversity and spectacular scenery.
San Pedrillo Ranger Station: San Pedrillo is Corcovado National Park’s northernmost ranger station, and this excursion provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore the dense jungle of primary and secondary rainforests adjacent to the ranger station. Your guide will point out many of the diverse species dwelling around the trails during an hour and a half hike. You may see white-faced and howler monkeys, white-lipped peccaries, scarlet macaws, coati, and more. The trails are clearly marked and easy to navigate, ascending and descending through the verdant rainforest. After the first hike and a break for lunch, you will have the opportunity to hike to a beautiful waterfall, the perfect chance to take some photos and swim under the smaller falls nearby.
Sirena Ranger Station: For those who are interested, we also offer tours to Corcovado’s Sirena Ranger Station. This ranger station is also located along the Pacific coast, but further south in the middle of the Park. The boat ride to Sirena from the hotel takes over an hour, well worth it for those who are interested in exploring the Park’s interior, where the most abundant wildlife dwells. There are several trails that surround the ranger station, where you’ll observe many species including scarlet macaws, Baird’s Tapir, monkeys, peccaries, iguanas, sloths, lizards, and a wide variety of plants, amphibians and insects.
