Arrival in Corcovado

Day 1

Arrival in Corcovado

You’ll travel to Danta Corcovado and enjoy a warm welcome whilst your bags are whisked away to your jungle lodge! You’re free to relax on the terrace or enjoy a cold beer. If you’d like to warm up your hiking legs, you could walk one of the 3 nature trails on site or take a visit to the canopy viewing platform.

Days 2-3

Early the following morning you’ll be transferred to Los Patos Ranger Station and from here you’ll start the first of your hikes heading to Sirena Ranger Station. When you leave here for Los Patos Ranger Station, you will take only a smaller bag holding your essentials for the next 2 nights, we will then arrange for your main luggage to be taken to your beachside lodge.

The hike is approximately 24km long and is mostly downhill, with the odd hill climb. In dry weather, the trail should take between 5 and 6 hours. In the green, or wet, season, it may take up to 7-8 hours and you should be prepared to get a bit muddy! You’ll arrive late afternoon to Sirena Ranger Station to watch the sunset with a well-deserved beer.

The accommodation is basic with bunkbeds and shared bathroom facilities, but the feeling of adventure is second to none! The day after you arrive your guide will take you out to explore more of the surrounding area, there’s plenty of wildlife hidden in the canopy above so keep your eyes peeled. Your guide is an expert in spotting sleepy sloths and scuttling lizards.

Days 4-6

Today you’ll wave goodbye to the National Park and head to Drake Bay by boat. This will be a wonderful opportunity to take in the beautiful coastline and rest your legs! Upon arrival, your luggage will be waiting for you. Meals are included here so enjoy dinner in the open air restaurant before relaxing on a hammock to watch the sunset.


You’ll spend 2 nights here and the time is yours to relax. The hotel is directly on the beach, or if you’re still seeking adventure you can arrange trips directly with the lodge. On your final morning, you’ll depart after breakfast by boat to Sierpe. You’ll journey along the coast on the open sea, before heading down the river amongst the mangroves.
