Nature

The Corcovado National Park and Drake Bay are located north of the Osa Peninsula. It is one of the sites with less tourist flow in the country, but with a wonderful and unique natural and archaeological wealth. Corcovado is considered the site with the highest concentration of species of flora and fauna in the country, making it a mega-biodiverse area, which is why it is also known as the open zoo of Costa Rica. Until recently Drake Bay, and specifically the town of Agujitas, could only be visited by sea. Its beaches are rocky and with an unparalleled scenic beauty. In addition to the wildlife that inhabits these lands, the area is also known for nearby attractions such as the Isla del Caño, the Terraba-Sierpe Wetland and the Archaeological Stone Spheres Museum, among others.

The Corcovado National Park protects 41,788 hectares of shallow lagoons, swamps, mangroves, rivers, humid forests and low altitude cloud forests, as well as 46 kilometers of sandy coasts. In its extensive territories, it is possible to observe the biological diversity of the last virgin natural area of the entire Central American region. In its lands, 6,000 insects, 500 species of trees, 367 species of birds, 140 species of mammals, 117 species of amphibians and reptiles, and 40 species of freshwater fish coexist.

The Park has many hiking trails and rustic camp shelters. It is recommended to go with a guide. The less adventurous visitor can also enjoy the park taking boat trips on its waters, or arriving by plane at the Sirena station. Try to keep your eyes open to see whales and limpets. The observing visitor will also be able to see many animals in danger of extinction.

The park offers information services for visitors, trails, signage, sanitary services, drinking water, landing field, camping area, radio-communications and rustic lodging.
It is recommended to wear waterproof and comfortable shoes; waterproof but cool clothes; backpack or mountain bag; sunscreen; repellent and biodegradable toilet implements; hat; and, a reusable container for water.
