If you're visiting Corcovado and are interested in seeing as much wildlife as possible then you owe it to yourself to spend at least one night- and preferably two- at Sirena. This is your one and only option, and it allows you to be on the trails around Sirena in the early mornings and late afternoons, which taking a day-trip (either via boat, plane, or hiking) does not permit. Don't expect friendly rangers (if you're at Sirena at all that means by definition that you have a guide, so interacting directly with the rangers isn't really necessary anyway), nice bathroom facilities, free potable water (bottled water is available at $5 per two-litre bottle), or privacy but just remember where you are and how lucky you are for the chance to be very close to monkeys (especially squirrel monkeys), tapir, toucan, peccary, great curasow, blue morpho, etc........ Not to mention access to: primary rainforest, beautiful but rugged beaches, swimming in the Rio Claro, interesting foreign and local visitors (there was a group of Tico tourists there during my visit), etc.... Meals are very good (must be arranged in advance, and are not cheap) and worth it, as you'll greatly value a hot meal or two after days spent eating whatever basic food you pack in. Just do it.
