Biological Station the evening is a lovely place and magic that runs along the entrance to Corcovado National Park, is an ecolodge. Bird watching could be the blue cotinga this excellent. We saw a lazy two fingers, many types of frogs and also there is a huge matapalo in the Middle, a canon murcielgados-infested style Batman. At night you can walk and observsr things interesting as the bird "cuyeo" and even fungi with bioluminescence, a spectacle. The next day comes out toward the path known as the ducks a walk of primary forest simolemente magic, is passage of pigs of Mount area and we visited the domains of a Cougar stalking us. Also saw a tayra. Then 8 hours of walking and watching animals we arrived in siren and history in siren there is not that tell it. Puma, 4 species of monkey, coatis, chancho peccary, crocodiles, tapirs... toucans, macaws beach... visit Corcovado with grooves Tour. It is the best investment. 2019 follows route San Pedrillo
Reinaldo was my tour guide I booked through Surcos Tours for an overnight in Corcovado National Park. He had an amazing wealth of information and a true passion for guiding, which showed through and caused me to have a great time.
We had an amazing time. The entire Surcos tour crew we met both before and during the tour, were incredible people and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. My wife and I would highly recommend this Tour group, Corcovado, and surrounding area!! We saw tons of wildlife and had some great hikes- Pura vida!
Not very good you do not need a guide to do the 1 day tour to Corcovado for sure our guide didn't direct us around much, the tour office never told us how long the tour would be they just kept saying as long as you want it to be. Our guide did not communicate well with the tour office because when we met our guide in the morning he was asking us where are permit for entry to the park was and we didn't have it obviously because the tour office had it so we had to stop there I. The morning after we already woke up a time 6 am to leave which caused a half hour delay. Guide was not talkative I have no idea how this place got such a good reivew. Our guide didn't bring a camera or a tripod which all other guides did.
We just come back from a 3 days hike from Corcovado with our guide Nito and everything was so wonderful!!! From the start the experience with Surco Tour was professional and human. We started our adventure with them with Cynthia who was so helpfull and patient with us. We had many questions and she takes the time to answer everyone of them very quickly. Two days before our meeting with our guide, our plane was delayed and we ask them to delay the tour at the very last minute. We call them on the weekend 15 minutes before they close to ask them to star the tour a day later. Even if they didn’t have the place for us, they managed to find us a guide! They even succeed to convince the park to dont charge us extra fees. They make all the last minute changes without charging us anything for all the troubles it gives them ( and they had just one day to make all the changes, on a Sunday!!!) Then on the day of our arrival at Puerto Jiminez we met our guide Nito. He takes us on a long walk to show us animals at Puerto Jiminez, even if it wasn’t included in the tour! Then he arranges transportation for us to go to our AIRBNB far from their office and for the next morning as well. At corcovado, everything was perfect!!! We see a lot of animals ( every species you wish to see when you go to Corcovado!!!!). The hike is just wonderful! Nito was the better guide ever! We feel he treated us like long time friends! He is a real living encyclopedia!!! Evan if he is a guide for years, he is so pationate about is work that we felt he was discovering te park for the first time with us! He seems to see every animals around us, even the small birds so high in the tree that you can’t see them with your bared eyes. When he hears a sound, he followed it and find the bird or animal at each time!! He is very generous of his time and knowledge! He is also a funny one...but I wont say more about it! Just ask for Nito to be your guide and you will have the time of your live!!! Thanks Surcos Tour and Nito, we won’t ever forget you and the life time experience you give us!

We spend 3 days in the dschungel and it was absolutely beautyfull. It was the best activity we did in Costa Rica and an unforgettable experience! Thanks to Nito
