Corcovado National Park
It doesn't get any more remote, protected, and pristine than this. Corcovado National Park is located on the southern part of the Osa Peninsula. The majority of the park can only be reached by boat, foot, or horseback.
Corcovado's 210 square miles of land area include 13 different ecosystems and is known to protect at least 104 mammal, 367 bird, 117 amphibian and reptile, and 40 fresh water fish species.
Several endangered species including the jaguar, puma, tapir, and squirrel monkey reside here. Its not at all uncommon for visitors to see large flocks of scarlet macaw and herds of the endangered while-lipped peccary. Monkey and sloth sightings are common place.
In addition to these larger animals, Corcovado is also a good place to sight red-eyed tree frogs, glass frogs, and various species of poison dart frogs. It's no wonder the National Geographic called it "the most biologically intense place on Earth."
Corcovado National Park can be visited on our 6-day tours.
