Corcovado National Park is arguably home to the Costa Rica's most beautiful rainforest. It's a treasure trove of natural wealth, making up a remarkable 2.5% of the world's biodiversity. Immerse yourself in this luxurious jungle with the help of a certified guide—a mandatory condition for exploring the park.
This remote, peaceful haven is home to tapirs, coatis, monkeys, and sloths. As you make your way through the forest, you'll also encounter unforgettable experiences with macaws and agoutis. The path through the jungle opens onto a gorgeous, preserved shoreline, where turtles come to lay their eggs at night. Watching baby turtles return to the sea is a moving sight, and you can ask your local agent for more insight regarding the best time to see them.
The park extends into the Pacific Ocean, where equally fascinating wildlife encounters await you by boat. Venture out into the waters of Drake Bay and Golfo Dulce to marvel at humpback whales, pilot whales, and dolphins as they perform their aquatic ballets.
For a more in-depth look at the region's wealth of fauna, put on your diving gear and explore the crystal-clear waters of Isla del Cano, where a colorful new world will reveal itself before your eyes. The area sees less rain between December and April, making this the ideal season to visit Corcovado National Park.See more
