Corcovado National Park
Corcovado National Park in southern Costa Rica protects an extraordinary array of wildlife. Home to Central America’s highest concentration of scarlet macaws as well as Baird’s tapirs and white-lipped peccaries (which have since vanished from many parts of their former ranges), Corcovado boasts the largest collection of scarlet macaws of any park worldwide – plus Baird’s tapirs and Baird’s tapirs from Baird’s Tapirs to white-lipped peccaries (which had vanished).
Certified tour guides have been employed in order to protect the park by enforcing stringent regulations such as not littering, feeding animals and going off designated trails.
Corcovado Park can be explored via day tours that include transportation, boat rides and rainforest hiking – however for the full experience we advise booking either an extended full-day tour or overnight experience.
Not only can you experience wildlife here, but the park also boasts 23 miles of beaches featuring soft sand, coconut palms, and waterfalls. When swimming beware when in Rio Claro and Sirena estuaries where there may be crocodiles or hammerhead sharks present.
