Corcovado National Park, Carate

Explore Corcovado National Park the largest park in Costa Rica. Established in 1975, the remote national park encompasses about a third of the country’s Osa Peninsula. Trek the pristine trails of the isolated tropical rainforest, go birdwatching and spot over 350 species of avian creatures, or admire the park’s scenic rivers, waterfalls, and oceanside beaches. Hiking in the lush national park you can spot a staggering amount of wildlife, including snakes, crocodiles, monkeys, sloths, coatis, and the endangered Baird’s tapir. Visitors need a permit and a guide to explore the park, while staying overnight in one of the base camps requires a reservation.
