The boat ride from our hotel to National Corcovado was an adventure to begin with. The tour guides/captain were skilled. The beach landing when we got to the park was a challenge because it was high tide! We all got off the boat safely and...More

This tour company is great! Our guide had been taking on people to Corcovado for over 30 years and his knowledge was proof of that. I highly recommend taking the day tour to Sirena Station if you are short on time but stay overnight if...More

Hello! I read about the option to sleep at a platform at Golfo Dulce 50 feet above the ground. However, I can't find any recommendations or further information about it. Only one recommendation, badly translated from 2014. Any more recent experiences? :)

Hello, I plan to take my 16 year old grandson to Drake Bay next summer. He is a collector of reptiles among other things! Where did you stay that you saw the most frogs, lizards, etc. He does love snakes also (not so much, Granmamma, but I will bite the bullet!) Any other advice you could give me about seasons, snorkeling, tours, places to stay would be soooo appreciated! Also how much Spanish is needed? Thank you very much, Peggy
