We stayed at the Jaguar de Oro campground and had a good time talking with the staff in our broken Spanish. The hike in is now longer than the guidebooks note but you should take your time along the way for photos and to be...More

I followed the standard list for things to pack and ended up completely dehydrated, despite having 4 liters of water, with a much too heavy bag. I chose to fly out for $40 rather than risk heatstroke on the return hike. Registration with the park...More

Corcovado National Park is not like anywhere you've ever been before, guaranteed. If you are visiting Costa Rica to experience adventure, the outdoors, wildlife, tropical botany, the off-the-beaten-path look at this amazing country- the Osa Peninsula, especially Corcovado NP would be a HUGE shame to...More
