You can see tapirs and face sides. In rainy season the roads can be flooded so careful when choosing shoes.

Positive: we had booked our guide about Martinas place and he was top. Everest has shown many animals and found, brought us to abgetretenere paths and was funny in conversation. Negative: Tourists! Just those who make a half-day trip, run groups through the Park in 6-10er. So, you can see any animals, because they are too loud. 3 hiking trails are trails to Sirena. When it rains it is leaking, flat mud paths where it's not fun to run. Even in the touristy rainy season, we encounter all the time other groups. You don't want to know what it's like in the high season. A really 'feel of the jungle' will not be so. It reminds in any way of an 'exotic South', as he is described in some guidebooks. Recommendation: no hiking boots, but definitely take rubber boots, if it should rain. If you do the tour, rather in the rainy season (with the risk of heavy rain, but fewer tourists). Cheap half day trip worth it don't actually able to see animals.

One of my favorite places to hike. Guaranteed to always see an animal. Next time I believe we will that longer and camp :) more »

Amazing opportunity to see 2.5% of the world's biodiversity in one rain forest. The hikes are long and hot but the payoff is worth it. We saw 4 different species of monkeys, tons of birds, tapir, great curacao, crocodiles, cayman, and many others. Corcovado is a must see but bring lots of water, waterproof gear (rain jacket, bags to cover electronics, sturdy shoes) and strong bug spray!

One of the largest national parks in Costa Rica. Very undeveloped but that's what makes it beautiful. Let the pics speak for themselves. My family went with a tour and it was incredible. We saw so many birds and wildlife here. Would recommend getting a naturalist guide to identify and point out all the life around you.

While going to Costa Rica Me and my class visited the Volcano and Lake. We had the best time and we were glad to experience the beautiful sights that Costa Rica has to offer. It was really fun sight, the only things is we wish we could have went down to the lakes edge or even a little closer to the volcano... it was still really fun

What I saw there was absolutely amazing. Of course you can see, o maybe you already saw this animals in ZOO. But is more exciting if you find them in normal nature. I saw a lot, we just didnt find puma, jaguar, tapir... but the rest was amazing. Depends how lucky you are with guide. You can get really good one and he finds 20animals in hour, you can have really lazy one and you see just few of them.

Highlight of our Costa Rica trip. If you love wildlife and jungle go to Sirena Ranger Station and stay overnight. It will be worth the money and you'll have a more authentic experience and meet people from all over. Such a beautiful park, bravo on CR for preserving it.
