Le parc national du Corcovado a été créé le 24 octobre 1975 par décret présidentiel sous l'administration Daniel Oduber Quirós. À cette époque, Corcovado a été colonisée par des orpailleurs et des agriculteurs qui ont finalement été relocalisés par le gouvernement afin de protéger la flore et la faune du parc.
Aujourd'hui, le Corcovado protège la plus grande étendue de forêt pluviale des basses terres du Pacifique de toute l'Amérique centrale et abrite les animaux les plus menacés du pays. Randonner à travers les forêts impressionnantes du Corcovado et découvrir la riche biodiversité du parc est vraiment mémorable et fortement recommandé.

About the Park
Corcovado National Park was established on October 24th, 1975 by presidential decree during the Daniel Oduber Quirós administration. At this time Corcovado was settled by gold miners and farmers who were eventually relocated by the government in order to protect the flora and fauna of the park.
Today Corcovado protects the largest tract of Pacific Lowland Rainforest in all of Central America and is home to the country’s most endangered animals. Hiking through Corcovado’s impressive forests and experiencing the park’s rich biodiversity is truly memorable and highly recommended.
FAQ Corcovado Tours
CAN I BRING FOOD INTO THE PARK?
It is strictly prohibited to bring food or disposable water bottles/ packaging into the park. This is to protect the wildlife from visitors feeding them or leaving rubbish.
Cancellation policies vary for each overnight your option. Cancellations due to weather will only be applied if there is a weather alert issued by SINAC.
ARE THERE MORE ANIMALS AT SIRENA?
There are not "more animals" at Sirena. There are more tour groups at Sirena, therefore more guides looking for animals and sharing that info with other guides.
DO YOU HAVE RUBBER BOOTS?
Yes we provide rubber boots!
CAN I DO A CORCOVADO TOUR ON THE DAY I LEAVE THE LODGE?
You can do a Corcovado day tour or overnight tour on the last day/night of your stay if you'd like! The tour ends at around 12:30 and you can take the 1:30 boat back to Sierpe!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE?
All Corcovado Trips should be reserved with at least 30 days of anticipation if possible. We have to obtain permits for park entry with your passport info in advance. The park only allows 100 visitors per day per station, so these permits are extremely limited. We will always do our best to make sure our guests can experience Corcovado.
ON WHICH TRIP HAS THE JAGUAR BEEN SPOTTED?
The only tour that has ever spotted a jaguar in person is the San Pedrillo overnight. Our campsite is specifically located where we capture jaguars with our camera trap project.
What to expect
Corcovado is the most strongly protected park in Costa Rica with the strictest rules and limitations on how many people can enter, who can guide tours here, among other protocols. The park is not a zoo and the animals are completely wild. It is impossible to guarantee what animals visitors will see on a Corcovado Tour. Visitors should go to Corcovado to appreciate the wild and undisturbed rain forest, not because they have a list of specific animals that they must see to have a successful tour.
