Corcovado National Park Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 53 photos

We flew into Corcovado on January 1, 2004. It was hot. Very hot. I mean icrediblly hot. Our Tico guide Arturo said that it was as hot as anything he experienced working summers in St. Louis, Missouri. And believe you me--St. Louis is the hottest, steamiest place on earth come July.

But heat aside, Corcovado was the exotic jungle experience that we came to Costa Rica to find. Isolated beaches. Verdant Jungles. Teaming wildlife. Corcovado is life itself.

    I didn't know Costa Rica is so wonderful paradise for bird watching. A great adventure and interesting wildlife. Well, a bit too hot climate for me, I suppose :-)

    I think I could put up with beans & rice to be able to see this place! If you ever get the opportunity Phil try visiting Goa, over 300 species of birds...you'd be in heaven! Happy travels, Blu

    beans and rice... really "local", but the view... worth anything.

    You have some great info on the native wild life... Thats a ripe old age those monkeys live to. I'm not sure I like your room mate...:-) Always a little time for a hammock.
