All about Intense Jungle Trekking

This tour is ideal for hikers looking for a deeper exploration of the area.

First day: Leave at 12:30 pm from Puerto Jimenez to La Tarde, a rural tourism project that borders the park. You’ll get to visit its unique trails and discover nocturnal creatures and incredible people.

Second day: Head towards Sirena from La Tarde, passing by the Los Patos Ranger Station, and after a 30 km hike, spend the night in this remote biological station.

Third day: Prepare to explore the exuberant beach for 20 km on this coastal trail that you won't forget!  Reach the La Leona Ranger Station and head toward Carate, a gold-digging town, where you can enjoy refreshing cold coconut water.

Completing 60 Km in 3 days while encountering hundreds of species of animals, that’s a good dose of Corcovado!

This tour starts in Puerto Jimenez and ends in Puerto Jimenez.

Although, you can choose to exit towards Drake on the last day to lower the intensity of the tour. In that case have in mind that, you might need the luggage transfer service between PJ and Drake. We don't recommend doing any Corcovado hike with more than 6 kilograms on your back. Policies apply for the luggage transfer, you can read them here: Luggage Transfer Policies.

If you're coming in a rented car, and you plan to exit on the other side of the Peninsula after your tour, we can help you move it from Drake to PJ or vice-versa. Ask about our car relocation service. Policies apply, you can read them here: Car Relocation Policies.

La Tarde Ecotouristic Project & Sirena Biological Station

The La Tarde Ecotouristic Project, located in the northern mountains of Corcovado, is a rural tourism initiative that borders the national park and an excellent place for watching birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Here you will spend the first night, in a simple and beautiful cabin. With a stunning view of the forest, the accommodations include a towel, soap, sheets, and shared bathrooms.

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.
