Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Stayed for 2 nights but could have stayed for more gladly, there are so many things to do in that area that there is never enough time. The Tent Camp is really comfortable and clean, there are enough bathrooms ans showers for everyone, each tent has 2 beds, a fan, light(really useful at night), you can use their kayaks and explore, or go for a walk to the closest beach without leaving the camp, there is also internet access and more facilities than I was expecting, also they have cabins with private bathroom and a beautiful view if you prefer that, the staff will go out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as they can. The hike in Corcovado National Park is great, the guides are really knowledgeable and that will allow you to appreciate even more the rain forest. I look forward to visit the area again staying a couple extra nights.

Room Tip: All the tents are pretty much the same but some are closest to the beach and restaurant, also you ca...

From Thursday, January 17, 2013 until Monday, January 21, 2013, I had the pleasure of staying at Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp. This was pure paradise, for me - for I am a person that really appreciates a real tropical rain forest adventure. I'm not saying its for everyone. Yes, you do sleep in tents, but they are well screened and have electrical outlets and a fan. Each tent is under a canopy so that if it rains, none of the rain water actually touches the tent. If the idea of sleeping in a tent without television is not for you, the staff would likely prefer that you choose another place. I DID NOT come to the paradise of Corcovado, Costa Rica, however, to watch TV! I came to experience the wonders of the tropical rainforest. Those who are addicted to their electronic gadgets will be glad to know that you can plug your device in and get on the internet with no problem, so you can communicate your experience with those back home as they happen. You are served three excellent full meals per day and this is included in the charge. Best of all, the guided tours which you can take from here are superb! There is a hiking tour in Corcovado National Park, which is the most biodiverse park in Costa Rica which was fabulous. We saw birds such as toucans, scarlet macaws and hawks, mammals such as spider monkeys and peccaries, amphibians such as poison dart frogs, and reptiles, including a variety of lizards and crocodiles down where the rivers meet the ocean. Then they offer a snorkeling/scuba diving trip out to Isla dos Cano, where the water visibility was 40 feet. The staff is very friendly, personable and attentive to your needs. Tell "Wildcat" that I sent you!

Room Tip: Don't orry about choosing a good room. There are no bad rooms! For views, check their website.

Randy 408,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience for others to read. We appreciate it very much. You are absolutely right, we do not have tv's or a/c in our tents but this is the exact reason the majority of people stay with us. We are a tent camp in the jungle.

We are very happy you enjoyed our meals, service, and our tours. We do our best to provide high quality equipment and highly experienced and trained guides. We thank you again for your review and hope to have you stay with us again.

pura vida!

Stayed for the 3 night package - fantastic place. Beautiful location right on the coast and a scenic boat ride away from Corcovado National Park. Tents with beds were clean and a fan helped with the heat & humidity. Hammocks by the tents had great views of the ocean. Food was good, plenty of it. Facilites a short walk away from tents and very clean - note that the wildlife do visit the showers/toilets but it is an Adventure Camp! Brilliant staff -very welcoming and helpful. Great guided trip into NP - saw so much wildlife not seen elsewhere in CR. A great place to do some activities or to just chill in hammocks, chat with fellow adventure travellers and reeeelax. Wished we could have stayed longer and would love to return someday.

I stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. The location is great, the staff super friendly and very helpful. No time to get bored :) You can lend kayaks, go hiking, swimming, book a guided tour in the rainforest, go on snorkeling or scuba diving tours, ..... I wished I would have had more time. I would definitely come back!

Nadine B,
Thank you so much for the review. We appreciate you taking the time to share your excellent experience with us. We are very happy you lucky enough to see the turtle eggs hatching during your stay. Usually once a year we have a clutch of eggs hatch out right on our beach.

In addition to the snorkeling and scuba tours we also offer snorkel gear for our guests to use right from our beach. We would also like to remind readers of your post we offer very popular and cheap night tours with our in house guide.

We hope to see you again. Thanks again for your review and pura vida!

Corcovado Adventures Tent Camp was wonderful. Everything about it - wonderful: the people, the view, the food, the tents, everything.

Both tours included were fantastic. We saw everything from monkeys, red macaws, tucans, sloths, wild hogs, and more. We even were lucky enough to see a giant pacific manta on our snorkeling tour. Not to mention the monkey that woke us up one morning by peaking over the side of our tent - so amazing.

We also did the Canopy Tour (zip-lining) and I highly recommend it if you are going. The tour guides made you feel extremely safe and we were always hooked to something. They made sure there was a 0% chance of falling while zip-lining or climbing.

Keith, the main manager we believe, was really great. Very helpful and organized. His night tour was one not to miss!

We stayed for 5 nights - 6 days and honestly both felt as if we could have stayed longer. I felt bad for those who only stayed 3 nights - it's too lovely to not stay longer!

They clean the tents everyday to rid them of any sand you tracked in the day before - so they always feel very clean.The food is always extremely fresh and very filling. We never felt as if we were without anything.

Of course waking up in the middle of the night and having to go to the bathroom was hard seeing as how far the facilities are. But hey - you sign up for an adventure - and you get an adventure!

P.S. Make sure to request Tres Leches for desert one night. You wont regret it!!

Room Tip: Try to ask for a beach front tent - they are the best!!

Caitlyn W,
Thanks for your review. We really appreciate you sharing your experience for others to read. We are so happy you enjoyed your tours and you complete experience with us. Our night tours our extremely popular so we are happy you mentioned that.


We have had other people mention the distance of the bathrooms. It is not far from all tents. Some of the tents closer to the beach have a bit futher of a walk to the bathrooms but that is the trade off to be so close to the water.

We are happy to announce that we now have 5 cabins very close to completion. They are self contained with ensuite bathrooms. The will be available from the first of feb 2013


Thanks again for sharing you experience and pura vida!

I wish there were a button between average and very good but ce la vie. This property was an adventure, for sure. It is perfectly situated right on the water and in the jungle. The tents were clean and as bug free as possible. The food was just average and the bathrooms are in a rather inconvenient location. They are a walk from almost any tent. But if you go here you must be a person who wants adventure... and you can get ADVENTURE here. We did the tour to the National Park and saw LOTS of animals. We also did a horse ride which I would not recommend unless you are an experienced rider. Had a monkey show at the end which was great!

Laura908,
We would first like to thank you for taking the time to write this review and share your experience. We do our best to provide adventure and help create great and lasting memories for all of our guests.

If you read through our other reviews you will find that many of our guests absolutely love our fresh food. Of course since our tents do not have bathrooms in them, a short walk is required. Our bathrooms are centrally located by the eating area and office.

Starting February 2013 we will be offering private cabinas with ensuite bathrooms for those who do not want stay in a tent or want a private bathroom.

Again thank you for your comments, if you have any other thoughts or ideas of how to improve the food, the tours, or any other aspects of our business we appreciate feedback.

thank you and pura vida!

The staff at the tent camp make you feel like you're part of the family. They arrange tours (and pack lunches), provide boogie boards and make amazing drinks. Dinner is family style, and it was the best food i ate during my entire trip to Costa Rica. The private beach is perfect for sunbathing, boogie boarding and watching the sunset. I HIGHLY recommend.
