Day 2        CORCOVADO NATIONAL PARK

 
   

Duration: 4 Hours

Time: 7:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.

 

This tour to the San Pedrillo Ranger Station, the closest of the four Ranger Stations inside Corcovado National Park. This is a wonderful opportunity to see both primary and secondary rainforest, as well as a wide variety of plant and animal life.

 

The boat ride to the San Pedrillo Ranger Station lasts approximately 45 minutes, but much depends on weather and sea conditions. Whenever possible, while en route to the Park entrance, your guide will survey the ocean for whale and dolphins sightings.

 

Situated just off shore, a short distance after the entrance to the Ranger Station, is Picaros Island, which serves as a refuge for several species of marine birds including the Brown Boobie, Blue Heron and Brown Pelican. Prior to entering the National Park you will pass by and circle the island by boat, during which time you will be able to see these beautiful marine birds up close. You are not permitted to physically go onto the island. 


Shortly thereafter, you will be taken to the Park Ranger Station, where you will begin your hike into the National Park. Remember to sign into the guest book.

The first trail begins just behind and to the right side of the Ranger Station, alongside the river. The initial portion of the trail is a rather steep uphill climb, through secondary rainforest. Wherever necessary, large slabs of tree trunk have been strategically placed on the ground to assist you with your footing. Just before reaching the plateau, on your left side, there is a lookout area, with views of the ranger station and Pacific Ocean. This is a good spot for a brief rest, photos, or whale and dolphin watching. 

 

Throughout the tour your guide will point out items of interest, as well as bring to your attention interesting facts and information about the surrounding rainforest. The animal life in this section of the National Park is quite vibrant, with frequent sighting of monkeys, cocmundids, squirrels, spiders, macaws, bats, leaf cutting ants, and other animal species. As well, much will be mentioned about the plant and tree species, which is lush, and teeming with life.

Day 3               CAŅO ISLAND HIKING & SNORKELING

 
 Caņo Island is situated just 12 nautical miles from Drake Bay and can be seen just minutes after leaving the protected cove of the hotel. The boat ride to the Park entrance takes approximately 45 minutes, during which time you might be lucky enough to see whales and/or dolphins frolicking in the ocean.

Your tour to Caņo Island includes ample time to snorkel in front of the ranger station. This will provide snorkelers with an excellent opportunity to familiarize yourself with the underwater terrain and sea life surrounding Caņo Island. The dark, volcanic rock is home to numerous species of marine life, much of which you'll see just a short swim from the beach. As well, you'll have time for a relatively short hike, which begins just behind the ranger station. After an initial climb, the trail tapers off and remains rather flat throughout the remainder of your hike.
 

Caņo Island is not know for its prolific wildlife, however, the Park does have rodents, crustaceans, amphibians, birds, lizards, and insects. As well, there are archeological remains on the island, which can be found at the very end of one of the island's trails. Small, completely round spheres can be observed, which is believed date back to the days when the island was inhabited by indians. As well, you'll have
