Explore the wildlife of one of the most biologically intense places on earth


This one-day hike in Corcovado National park starts from Puerto Jimenez where you will have private transportation to Carate after a good coffee in the backery "La Panadería". There is a great chance to spot wildlife during the car drive to Carate where you can stop to talk about the animals and take pictures. Once in Carate the group will leave the car behind and enter on the so-called 'beach trail' that will lead you to the entrance of the park.
Corcovado has been called the most biologically intense place on earth (from National Geographic). With an incredible amount of species, both marine and terrestrial, present in this area, it is known as one of the several biodiversity hotspots worldwide. You will learn about the amazing history and nature of Corcovado as you walk next to the most remote and virgin beaches of Costa Rica. After a good break for lunch near the beach and river you will walk back to the car with more possibilities to spot wildlife.
