All about Corcovado One Day Tour (La Leona)

We start early in the morning in Puerto Jimenez and take the road towards Carate, crossing several rivers, cattle fields, and the exuberant forests of Matapalo.

Hike along the coast of La Leona-Sirena trail, after passing La Leona Ranger Station, through secondary forest and the gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean, you'll find some of the most astonishing settings of the whole country.

Corcovado is home to thousands of species of plants and trees that sustain a great diversity of wildlife. Monkeys, anteaters, toucans, scarlet macaws, coatis, poison dart frogs, snakes, and with some luck even pumas or tapirs might appear on the way.

You can choose if you want to include transport or if you want to use your own car (only if it's 4x4).
