Explore for 1 or 3 days the famous Corcovado National Park claimed by National Geographic as one of the most biologically diverse places on earth. These wildlife tours will take you along the coast line where the signs of civilization fade as you hike where no roads exist, crystal clear rivers flow, and wildlife like monkeys, tapirs, and wild cats roam freely. Your guide will help you to uncover the hidden treasures that live under the leaves, in the trees, or in the ground at Corcovado. This will be an adventure you will not forget.
World-famous Corcovado National Park is a 425 km2 declared natural reserve that protects the largest primary forest on the American Pacific coastline and one of the few remaining sizeable areas of lowland tropical rainforests on Earth.
The wildlife within Corcovado is diverse and abundant. It is home to the Costa Rica’s largest population of the splendorous scarlet macaw, and many other endangered rainforest species can be found here, like tapirs, five species of cats, peccaries, giant anteaters, four species of monkeys, sloths and the harpy eagle. About 400 species of birds and 140 mammals have been seen here, as well as 500 different trees,
Corcovado National Park is just a forty-minute hike from Finca Exotica, so it is easy to explore the southern area of the park in one day and return to the comfort of our lodge instead of camping inside the park. But we offer both options:
