Corcovado is one of the most remote national parks in Costa Rica, and by far its most rich biologically. We offer a selection of itineraries, offer various means of exploring Corcovado depending on your ability, schedule and budget. We offer many 2 to 5 day tours based on the Sirena Biological Station, the main station in Corcovado. Sirena is situated in the center of the Park, in the Corcovado Plane, an area of outstanding biological richness. The abundance of Costa Rica wildlife there is such that it has prompted many to remark that is like being on National Geographic – in a living documentary.
On our Corcovado Tour, we explore the forests, rivers, swamps and beaches around Sirena Station on foot and by canoe. The Rio Claro, to the south of the Station, is scenically beautiful, and offers refreshing swims in its many clear pools.
The Rio Sirena to the north is navigable only by canoe. It is home to large bull sharks and crocodiles – swimming here is not recommended!! The forests around Sirena are home to spectacular wildlife such as jaguars, pumas, tapirs, large herds of the much-feared white-lipped peccaries and flocks of scarlet macaws. Corcovado is truly a Mecca for the wildlife enthusiast!
How we reach Sirena Biological Station and depart from there depends on you. We can hike in, fly in or get there by boat, exiting by the same means. Or we can explore the Park by a combination of these means. We exit the Park on foot by either one of two routes: Southeast along the coast to Carate, or Northwest along the coast to Drake Bay (December to April only).

This day tour can be combined with a Whale & Dolphin watching tour, Scuba Diving Cano Island, Cano Island Snorkeling Full Day tours are also available .
