Corcovado National Park from Manuel Antonio

Experience the best of Corcovado National Park from Manuel Antonio with our exclusive day tour! Our adventure starts early in the morning, as we pick you up from your hotel in Manuel Antonio and head to the Sierpe Mangroves area.

At Sierpe, we’ll enjoy a typical hefty breakfast before boarding the boat that takes us on a two-hour ride through Central America’s most extensive mangrove system and into the Pacific Ocean.

During the boat ride, we’ll have the chance to see big schools of bottlenosed dolphins, sea turtles, and even humpback whales (July to October). Before departure, there will be a safety briefing and a review of the itinerary. The boat ride can take around two hours, depending on the weather, which can be bumpy or delightful, adding to the adventure!

Once we arrive at Corcovado National Park, we’ll embark on an easy two-hour hike, which offers an excellent opportunity to spot the park’s diverse wildlife, including four species of monkeys and two species of sloths. Our knowledgeable guides will help you discover the secrets of this magnificent life system, where rainforests are a magnificent network of communication and community, offering a profound and unforgettable experience.

After the hike, we’ll take a break at the rangers’ station to enjoy a hefty lunch before heading to the second trail, a 1.5-hour hike that is shorter and more broken, and strenuous. However, it offers an opportunity to spot more animals, learn some interesting facts, and stop at a beautiful waterfall immersed in nature, where you can cool off in its warm waters and delight in the surrounding wilderness.

Our day tour ends with a boat ride back to Sierpe and then to Manuel Antonio after the sunset. Due to strict government policies limiting the number of daily visitors to the Corcovado National Park, we advise you to make reservations as soon as possible, especially if your dates are not flexible.
