Hiking in Corcovado National Park
Posted on: July 17, 2009 at 10:27AM
We spent a week in Corcovado National Park and tried a number of activities including hiking in the park and a night bug tour with the Bug Lady. The bug lady was excellent. I highly recommend this tour.
The day tour to Pedrillo Station was a bit disappointing. The guide wasn't as educated about the flora, fauna and wildlife as we had hoped. It's a good idea to shop around and not get pressed to book your trip upon arrival by your hotel, which is what happened to us.
If you're interested in trying this on your own, there's a detailed description with maps of Corcovado's hiking trails at http://www.itravel-costarica.com/corcovado_national_park.html. With hindsight, we could have done this on our own with a bit of preplanning.
