Corcovado National Park.

One day trip from Manuel Antonio.

    Have you thought to visit Corcovado NP but got discouraged for the remoteness of the place and thought it can not be included during a short visit to Costa Rica?! Problem solved!

 

    Corcovado is Costa Rica’s most bio-diverse place in Costa Rica. Remote, pristine, paradisiac, unique. These adjectives don’t make justice to the uniqueness of Corcovado.

For years, visiting Corcovado was nothing but a dream for many visitors due to the difficult access, often requiring to spend some nights at Puerto Jimenez to then embark in long, but excellent hike to the different park stations.

In the last few years Corcovado is more accessible partly thanks to the better roads, but also for the logistics from Sierpe River, which makes it possible for visitors based on Manuel Antonio to take a one-day trip, departing at 5:00am, and returning home for late dinner! Still, this is not for the faint of heart and is rather recommended for the keen nature enthusiasts.

This is not a trip for the faint of heart, but for those looking for some real adventure and looking to experience the real off the beaten path. Logistics include an early departure from Manuel Antonio, 2hr car ride to Sierpe, a 2 hrs boat ride followed by some easy hikes along the trails of Corcovado.
