Known around the world for its impressive biodiversity and ecosystems, the Corcovado National Park is not only wild, but one of the most popular for tourists visiting Costa Rica.

 

 

Created in 1975, this historic park is in a remote area of southern Costa Rica so with no crowds, allows for better wildlife watching. Rare and endangered animals such as tapirs, pumas, herds of collard and white-lipped peccaries, coatis, venomous snakes, poisonous frogs, crocodiles and even hammerhead and bull sharks are at home here in the Corcovado.

 

 

The most common animals to be seen are the four species of monkeys (squirrel, white face capuchin, spider and howler), sloths, coatis and an impressive variety of birds including toucans, scarlet macaw, hawks, woodpeckers, tanagers, trogons, parrot and parakeet to name a few.

 

 

There are many itineraries available to enter and exit the park. The access points for a 3-day expedition are as follows:
