|About these ratings|
Travelers come to this nearly 11,000-acre misty rainforest for its diverse wildlife. Buzzing insects and chirping birds surround you as you stroll through the verdant jungle. Trek along the hazy trails and you’re likely to spot macaws, tapirs, jaguars, spiders, or howler monkeys on your journey.
Recent visitors suggest visiting early in the day to increase wild-life sightings. One TripAdvisor user comments, "Definitely go early in the morning. We saw most of the wildlife between 7am-9am!" But to fully experience all of Corcovado's sights and sounds, you'll want to carve out two or three days for exploring.
Corcovado National Park is located along Costa Rica's South Pacific coast and can be accessed through a variety of park entrances that are marked with a ranger station. The three main entry points are San Pedrillo, Los Patos, and La Leona. These are conveniently spread out at different edges of the park. Corcovado National Park's ranger stations are in operation daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $8 USD per day or $17 USD per five days for non-Costa-Rican residents.
