This is a marvelous place where miles of solitary beaches and rainforest capture the imagination of those who take this path. The 54,539 hectares Corcovado National Park has astonishing biological diversity that attracts the attention of ecologists who study the intricate rainforest. The park was established in 1975, and has two sections. Most of it is in the southwestern corner of the Península de Osa and protects at least eight distinct types of habitat.

This assemblage is considered unique, being the best remaining Pacific Coastal Rainforest in Central America. Later, 12751 hectares were added on the northeastern side of the Golfo Dulce.
Many important species are protected here: the beautiful scarlet macaw, tapirs, wild cats, crocodiles, peccaries, giant anteaters, monkeys, sloths, the rare harpy eagle, almost 400 species of birds, 140 mammals and over 500 species of trees. Towns near the park: Agujitas in Bahía Drake, Puerto Jiménez, Chacarita and Golfito. Activities to do around: hiking, animal-watching, Tour to Isla del Caño Biological Reserve, snorkeling, kayaking, swimming-with-dolphins, horseback riding, sport fishing, and others.
