Explore Corcovado National Park the largest park in Costa Rica. Established in 1975, the remote national park encompasses about a third of the country’s Osa Peninsula. Trek the pristine trails of the isolated tropical rainforest, go birdwatching and spot over 350 species of avian creatures, or admire the park’s scenic rivers, waterfalls, and oceanside beaches. Hiking in the lush national park you can spot a staggering amount of wildlife, including snakes, crocodiles, monkeys, sloths, coatis, and the endangered Baird’s tapir. Visitors need a permit and a guide to explore the park, while staying overnight in one of the base camps requires a reservation.

  • Wonderful experience. Must see if you enjoy wildlife and walking through nature. It is a bit of a trek to get there but it sure is worth it. Recommend staying in the park at least one night but you should try to stay for two if you can swing it. Accommodations are on the rustic side but they are super clean and well kept.
  • This National park is very protected and different guided tours are offered. Advice: book your tour in advance as entries per day are limited. You’ll have the opportunity to see parrots, crabs, snakes, insects, tapir, sloths, monkeys, many species of birds and discover the secrets of the jungle!
