All about Corcovado Standard Package

This full three-day tour is the best way to discover the park. It's a combination of coastal trails, riverine forests, and beach hiking. You cover a vast area of secondary forest, excellent for spotting all kinds of wildlife.

First day: we start early in the morning in Puerto Jimenez, taking the shared taxi to Carate, where we'll start the 20 Km hike to the Sirena Biological Station. This 7 to 9-hour hike is known for its intense biodiversity and adventurous river crossings.

Second day: you get to explore the trails around Sirena, less hurried and without any weight on your back. This is a slower day where you get to observe and learn more in detail about tropical lowland rainforests, and you visit Sirena's ancient primary forests.

The third day, wake up to the call of the howlers and start getting ready for the long trekking once more. The 20 Km walk back to Carate offers one more chance for the best wildlife spotting before you say goodbye to the park.

In the summer (December to April), if you're up for a challenge and you're an experienced hiker, we do recommend hiking the 24 Km between Sirena and Los Patos Ranger Station. This way you'll get to see a completely different area of the park and visit the pristine primary forest of the higher mountains.

In the rainy season (May to November) you might have to hike in and back out through La Leona due to weather conditions.

You can choose either route to enter or exit, La Leona or Los Patos, depending upon the season and your hiking level. If you want to do both, we recommend starting at Los Patos and ending in La Leona. This tour starts in Puerto Jimenez and ends in Puerto Jimenez.

Sirena Biological Station

The Sirena Biological Station is located 800 mts from the beach. It has two roofed wooden platforms with 18 bunk beds each. Space between the beds is less than one meter apart, resulting in little privacy. The beds are furnished with sheets, a pillow, and mosquito net.

There are nice and clean bathrooms and showers (no hot water available), plus a souvenir shop where you can buy cold drinks, coffee, and snacks.

At the open-air dinning room, you will enjoy a typical Costa Rican meal, big enough to recover all the energy after lots of hiking.

There are lockers where you can store personal belongings for $4 per day. You may also rent towels for $5.
