Overview

The Corcovado National Park Day tour departs by boat from Punta Uvita beach at 7:30 AM, and arrives approximately 1.5 hour later to San Pedrillo Ranger Station in Corcovado National Park. A safety talk and a review of the itinerary is done before departure. Also there will be access to a coffee station (Coffee, Tea, fruits, toasts, natural juice) included in the price. Each boat ride has a duration of 1.5 hours and it can be a little bumpy or very pleasant depending on the weather of the day, but these conditions are part of the adventure in this remote and wonderful area of Costa Rica so please be mentally prepared to enjoy the great adventure. The trails at San Pedrillo station are flat and easy for all types of people, however, the tropical forest is warm during the dry season (December to April) and rainy from May to November. Corcovado National Park is located in the Osa Peninsula; Covering an area of 700 square miles on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the Osa geological history makes it home to a nearly unparalleled amount of biodiversity. The Peninsula is estimated to hold 2.5% of the biodiversity of the entire world – while covering less than a thousandth of a percent of its total surface area – truly earning its title as the most biologically intense place on Earth. Our concept on the tour is to learn about all the ecosystems found along the hike like trees, plants, insects, rivers, birds, mammals and also during the boat transit you may have the chance to observe and learn about Dolphins, turtles, pelagic birds and even Whales depending on the season of the year (July to October). As soon the boat arrives to Corcovado the guide will lead the group to the ranger station where there will be a time to get ready for the first hike. At the ranger station there are facilities like toilets and showers. The first walk takes place in one of the most extensive trails of this sector of Corcovado with a duration of approximately 2 hours. The path is totally flat and crosses primary forest and heads towards the beach where the guides will show very interesting coastal vegetation like tropical almond trees that feed the birds, such as the red scarlet macaw, with it fruits. Along this path you can appreciate huge trees and plants of great biological value that our guide will interpret. Then you will return to the ranger station to enjoy an outdoor lunch to recharge energy and prepare for the second hike. The second trail is shorter with a bit more broken ground and a duration of 1.5 hours. In this second hike, it’s possible to observe more birds, mammals and very interesting vegetation and even crocodiles. Also at the end of the trail we visit a small waterfall where it is possible to cool off and even receive a massage from nature under the waterfall. The second hike is subject to weather; especially during the rainy season. The boat starts heading back to Uvita beach at 2:30 pm and you can expect to arrive around 3:30/4:00 pm Due to strict government policies on the number of daily visitors to the park, making reservations as far in advance as possible is strongly recommended. If you like lush rainforests, want to howl with howler monkeys, relax with a sloth, sing with the birds, or investigate millions of insects, come for a tour of Corcovado National Park in the Osa Peninsula! The Corcovado National Park is one of Costa Rica’s best nature spots for eco-tourism! The number of visitors allowed per day is regulated and reservations fill up quickly.
