One of the few remaining virgin lowland tropical rain forests in the world, Corcovado National Park stands as a testament to the Costa Rican Government´s commitment to protecting its majestic environment. The tropical wet forests contained within its boundaries are widely considered to be the most species-rich in Central America. More than 500 species of trees, 367 species of birds, 140 species of mammals, 117 species of reptiles/amphibians, and 40 species of freshwater fish make Corcovado their home. Because of its diversity, National Geographic Magazine has crowned Corcovado National Park as one of the most biologically intense places on Earth.
Several hundred miles of foot trails criss-cross the park making even some of its most remote corners of the park accessible to the adventurous soul. Here you can wake up to the calls of the howler monkey and if you get lucky you might even get a glimpse of a Jaguar, American Crocodile, Caiman, or a Baird´s Tapir which are critically endangered or absent in the rest of the country. San Pedrillo is the closest Corcovado National Park ranger station west of Drake Bay, Costa Rica. It is about a 30-minute boat ride from Drake Bay!
