My husband and I are staying in Drake Bay and want to take a full day hike (8 hours) in the Corcovado National Park. I looked at a trail map and it looks like a couple trails are closed, and I read that the trail from San Pedrillo to Sirena is also closed during November. I read in a forum that the best trail to hike is from Los Platos Ranger Station to Sirena or Carate. How would we get to Los Platos from Drake Bay? I'm trying to do this on our own, the least expensive way possible. But also the most adventurous. How do you arrange to be picked up at a certain entrance/exit if you don't set up a guided tour? Any advice would be great... we are very flexible and just want the best cultural experience on our own.
