My husband and I are planning a trip to Corcovado National park and we will be doing the hike from Carate in to Sirena Ranger Station. We were hoping to bring our travel backpacks (which weigh 20lb each maximum) as we are trying to find a way to get to Drake bay from Sirena Station. The tour company we have found that does offer this package has said that it is impossible to do the hike in from Carate to Sirena with your bags as it is around 20km.
I am wondering if anyone who has done this hike agrees with this, or if the tour company is, understandably, being overly cautious. We are both young and fit and have been practicing building up our endurance by going on hikes in our area (25 degree and higher weather at this time of year) with our backpacks on.
We will be going in January. Also, any other helpful hints from anyone would be greatly appreciated!
