DSC00865.JPGThe first tour,  San Pedrillo Ranger Station, is close by, situated just 20-30 minutes by boat from Drake’s Bay, Corcovado National Park is world reknown for its rich diversity and spectacular scenery. The cost is $95.00. The Corcovado’s Sirena Ranger Station is one hour by boat and cost $135.00 and puts you in the center of the park. There is a four person minimum.

Your San Pedrillo Ranger Station Corcovado tour
begins with a visit to San Pedrillo which is the Park’s northern most ranger station. From here your guide will lead you up into the dense jungle comprised of primary and secondary forest, during which time you’ll be introduced to some of the more interesting aspects of the Park’s natural surroundings. The trails themselves are clearly marked and easy to navigate, ascending and descending through the verdant rainforest. One particular trail leads to a large waterfall, ideal for photos and/or bathing.

The second tour we offer is our favorite and may well be the highlight of your time in the Osa peninsula. This tour is to the 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 approximately one hour, well worth it for anybody who wants to see the Park’s interior. There are several trails that surround the ranger station, some of which offers visitors to the Park with the best opportunites to observe wildlife. While not always visible, common sightings at either of the ranger stations include scarlet macaws, monkeys, (white face, howler, spider & squirrel) pecaries, iguanas, sloths, lizards, and a wide variety of plants, amphibians and insects.

The third option (also to La Sirena station) – VIP Tour / Corcovado National Park Private VIP Tour — by Plane – Sirena Station

Landing strip Sirena Ranger Station Corcovado Costa RicaThe day starts with breakfast at 6:30 AM, then departure from the hotel at 7:00 to head by boat to the town beach (wet landing). It’s a short drive to the Drake Bay airport for the flight to Sirena Station. From the plane’s windows, you’ll see an extraordinary aerial showcase of pristine, emerald green rainforest, cobalt blue ocean water, and golden sand beaches of this cherished part of Costa Rica’s natural heritage. The flight path covers the majority of the Park and includes a flyover of the Corcovado Lagoon. Upon arrival to the park, your Certified Greentique Guide will lead you through trails of primary and secondary rainforest offering a truly remarkable abundance and variety of wildlife. Corcovado is the only National Park that is home to all four species of Costa Rica’s monkeys. There are also huge crocodiles, tapirs, anteaters, sloths, a veritable riot of colorful tropical birds, plus reptiles, amphibians, and mammals and more species of plants and trees than you can imagine. Exotic cats, including Jaguars and Puma prowl the forest and beaches, but these and other cats are mostly nocturnal, so please know that daytime sighting are extremely rare. After your morning hike you’ll stop for a delicious picnic lunch then rest a bit. Upon leaving for your afternoon hike your guide will then take more of the forest trails pointing out the amazing flora and fauna of one the most biologically intense places on earth. After your afternoon hike you’ll board your plane for the return flight back to Drake Bay.
