About the Corcovado National Park Tour
This full day tour departs Uvita beach at 7:00am and it is approximately a 90-minute boat ride to the Corcovado National Park. Once at Corcovado you take a hike through primary rainforest around the San Pedrillo park ranger station. On the hike you will have the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife, and potentially some endemic species. At noon you return to the park ranger station for lunch and a 30-minute rest before returning to Uvita beach.
The Corcovado National Park is located on the Osa Peninsula and is part of the Osa Area of Conservation. Corcovado National Park has a total area of 4,5757 terrestrial hectares and 5,375 marine hectares, and is considered a key component of the country’s extensive National Park and Biological Reserve system. The biological diversity of Corcovado is so great that National Geographic has called it “the most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity”. The park contains and preserves the largest primary forest on the Pacific side of the Americas, along with one of the few remaining significantly-sized rainforests in the world. Corcovado is large enough to sustain significant populations of tapirs (Tapirus bairdii), jaguars (Panthera onca), white-lipped peccary (Tayassu pecari) – all species that are in danger of extinction – along with 140 species of mammals, which represents 10% of mammals on the American continent.
