Corcovado National Park, Costa Rica
The Corcovado National Park is located in the south of the Puntarenas province in Costa Rica. This conservation area has been declared as 'one of the most biologically intense places on earth' by the National Geographic Magazine for having one of the tallest rainforests in the world and for being the house of many of the country's rare and endangered mammal and bird species. Corcovado features thirteen major ecosystems that range from mangrove swamps, lagoons, beaches, freshwater swamps and primary rain forest. Over 41,000 hectares protect around 140 different mammal species and 400 bird species. Located in the Osa Peninsula, this national park is one of the remotest and largest parks in Costa Rica.
This park offers a wide variety of attractions and activities that involve beauty and nature.
Wildlife in Corcovado is just amazing; tapirs, macaws, tree-frogs, squirrel monkeys, eagles, and the elusive jaguar call this park their home. The best place to start your adventure is from Puerto Jimenez, which is at the entrance of the Park. Here tourists can find a variety of hotels, a Ranger's office and all the necessary information, advice and warnings about the park. Another highlight of the Corcovado National Park is to see the unique combination of marine and land ecosystems. The land in the park includes soft sand beaches, swamps, mangroves and tropical forest. Hikers spend most of their time on forest trails, around Drake bay and in proximity to the ocean. Drake Bay is famous for its wonderful marine life and for being the dipper bay in the country; ideal for snorkeling and diving.
