Overview Itinerary Pricing


National Geographic once wrote of Corcovado that it is "the most biologically intense place on Earth." This unique site was once an island that years ago drifted to the mainland. It is one of the last best places for Jaguars, Tapirs and White-lipped Peccaries in Central America, as well as a home for hundreds an incredible array of other animals, plants, butterflies, amphibians, and birds.

The Ultimate Hiking Adventure includes the very best of Costa Rica in terms of hiking and wildlife opportunities. It features challenging hiking in the cloud forests of Cerro de La Muerte and the lowland rainforest of the exceptional Corcovado National Park, where you'll pass through three of the four Ranger Stations of the park. You'll travel to remote areas that afford truly intimate contact with nature, visiting places few others venture to.


*** You can start this trip any day of the year with a minimum of 2 travelers.

*** We'll spend 2 nights at the remote Sirena Ranger Station. The accommodations here are very basic yet the location allows for the top wildlife experience in the country. Having an open, adventurous spirit is the key to enjoying these 2 nights, due to the simplicity of the lodging and the potential for rough weather conditions.

*** This trip requires excellent physical shape.
