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.
Which station should I go to?
The Sirena Station is more popular than the San Pedrillo Station, therefore, you should expect many more tourists there than at San Pedrillo. The entry limit of each station is 100 tourists per day, and the Sirena Station tends to fill those spaces days to weeks in advance. The reason for its popularity is because it is believed to guarantee more animal sightings. The rain forest at Sirena is secondary growth, which means it has been cut down before and later revived. The Sirena Station has dorm beds and a cafeteria for those participating in overnight tours. Visitors can also buy snacks and souvenirs at this station.
A tour to the Sirena Station from The Jaguar's Jungle starts with a 40 minute boat ride to the Station. Once there, you will make a 4 to 5 hour guided walk along the trails. Visitors can see a variety of wildlife, including monkeys, birds, peccaries, coatis, sloths and hopefully the tapir. Lunch is given out where the guide thinks is appropriate. Then you walk back to the boat and go to return to the lodge at 12:30 to 13:00.
What to expect
The Corcovado National Park is a very special environment, undisturbed by human activity. Corcovado is the most strongly protected park in Costa Rica with the strictest rules and limitations on how many people can enter which is partly why the tours do not come cheap. All visitors must be accompanied by a certified guide. Those guides make sure that visitors do not feed the wildlife and treat the park with the utmost respect. That being said, 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.
San Pedrillo Station
A tour to San Pedrillo is a bit less of a touristic affair and more of a raw experience. The San Pedrillo Station is primary rain forest so you can expect to see massive old growth trees and undisturbed landscapes. The station also boasts an impressive waterfall and stunning beaches. Statistically, the San Pedrillo Station gets more puma sightings and the Sirena Station gets more tapir sightings. The only animal that can be spotted at Sirena and not San Pedrillo is the Squirrel Monkey.
A tour to San Pedrillo generally starts with a 10 minute boat ride from the lodge to the Station. Your guide will start by leading you through the flat trail to Rio Pargo where visitors can spot three species of monkeys, coatis, agoutis, great currasows, peccaries, and hopefully the tapir or the puma. This trail includes a beach section. Later, the guide will lead you through the waterfall trails where crocodiles can be spotted. Visitors can swim in the lower waterfall. After lunch at the station, groups get back on the boat to return to the lodge. Extreme hikers have the option of hiking back to the lodge.
Overnight tours at San Pedrillo are camping trips. We provide you with tents, hot food, all equipment needed, and a knowledgeable guide. Very few tour agencies carry out this tour because it is heavily involved. We are able to do this because of our strategic location.
