Corcovado National Park
A Day in Corcovado National Park
Corcovado National Park is the gem of all of Costa Rica. Primary and secondary rainforests grow as green and dense as bunches of broccoli and only give way for a narrow stretch of wild beachfront. Corcovado NP is dripping with (humidity!) and biodiversity. Expect to see Costa Rican wildlife everywhere! The park is home to 4 species of monkeys, sloths, wild cats, tapirs, crocodiles, peccaries, and anteaters, to name a few. Corcovado has a few different access points, none of which are all that easy to reach. Don't let this deter you! You’ll have to work for your right to get to Corcovado but the experience will more than make-up for your efforts. You'll need to get to one of the parks ranger stations on foot, by chartered plane, or by boat. The latter 2 are, of course, pricier, but money well-spent for nonhikers. No matter what, though, you'll need a guide to enter Corcovado. If you're traveling to Costa Rica and heading south to the Osa Peninsula, Corcovado National Park is a can't miss.
