Corcovado

I have just about finished coming up with my itinerary, but the more I read the more wonder if I will be missing out greatly if we don't go to Corcovado. What is different about it than the other areas that makes it the best place to visit? I was planning 2N Tortuguero, 3N Arenal, 3N Guanacaste, and 4N Jaco. We depart out of Liberia. If I included it how long would I need and what would I replace?

Thanks!

At least 3 nights...maybe adding two nights and cutting one at Jaco...Corcovado is unique...I visit often Carate Beach...close to one of the park entrances...I stay at ISEAMI Lodge...about $85.00 per person per day...including 3 meals...

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in PARADISE!

I would cut out Jaco all together and stay in Osa 4 nights. Many good choices for lodging in Drake Bay, Carate and Puerto Jimenez.

Hi,

I would cut out Jaco and head to Corcovado! It is a true gem and if you can do it, I highly recommend it.

I would suggest taking a plane to save on the travel time.

Hope this helps,

I agree with the others...skip Jaco and get down to the Osa! Jaco is quite tacky, to be honest, and has little to offer. The Osa has SO much to offer, particularly in terms of natural beauty and abundant wildlife. You can fly down on Sansa or Nature Air...spend at least three nights if you can manage it. Corcovado is a nature lover's paradise. You would need a guide...you can set that up in advance, or do it when you get settled in your Osa lodgings. Buena Suerte!
