Located in the remote South-Pacific Coast it is perhaps Costa Rica’s least explored park but the one that boasts the highest wildlife diversity and complexity, only compared with the Amazonian Jungle.
This area has remained relatively unknown and only during the last years has been object of serious scientific research, appearing in top rated, nature-oriented documentaries and magazines. National Geographic Society has catalogued this region as: One of the most biologically intense places on Earth. Pristine beaches and virgin tropical rainforest is what visitors will find in this tropical paradise.
We invite you to combine rainforest at its best ( hiking, bird-watching, etc.) along with several beach activities, including snorkeling, and you’ll have a wonderful multi-day package that will remain in your mind and heart for years to come. Lodging will be at cozy and friendly Marenco Beach and Rainforest Lodge, a place that will provide you with everything required to enjoy a comfortable and pleasant stay while keeping you in close contact with Mother Nature.
Day 1: Your package begins when you arrive at Palmar Sur Airport. Once there, you’ll be picked-up and driven by land to Sierpe and then by boat to the Lodge, while you observe the spectacular mangroves at the mouth of the Sierpe River and then navigate along our South-Pacific coastline. After lunch, the afternoon will be yours to enjoy your favorite beach activities (some nice beaches are only 10 minute walking distance from the Lodge) or you can hike the trails of their spectacular forest reserve, which borders the National Park.
Day 2: Full day guided hiking adventure into the northern section of Corcovado National Park. Access to the park is achieved using a motor-boat, bordering the coast. Take a good pair of hiking boots for this trip, as you could find some mud in certain areas. Remember you‘ll be hiking in the middle of a tropical jungle, although there will be trails to guide you through it. Impressive diversity of wildlife will be there for you to discover it, accompanied by your informative local guide.
Day 3: Caño Island Full Day Snorkeling Tour. After navigating some 40 minutes, you’ll reach this small Costa Rican island. It became famous years ago due to the mysterious and almost perfectly-round stone spheres that our indigenous people elaborated and left there. The island’s greatest treasure is the extraordinary marine biodiversity of the waters surrounding it and which you’ll be able to explore in this trip. We recommend you to bring your own snorkeling equipment. If that’s not possible, Marenco can rent it for only $ 5.00 per person. Diving is also another possibility, but tanks are not included in overall package price. The order in which you’ll take the hiking excursion and the island trip will depend on the resort’s daily programming.
Day 4: After breakfast, you’ll be taken to Palmar Sur, where your already reserved plane will bring you back to San Jose.
