We are frequently asked this question by travelers who want to take a to Corcovado National Park tour, since many times the opinions on the internet confuse them.
The small difference between the Sirena Corcovado tour and San Pedrillo is only 3000 years old. Sirena has a 47 year old secondary forest, and San Pedrillo has a large part of primary forest, at least 3000 years old.
In Sirena you will also have the possibility of seeing more animals, due to the effect between two rivers that makes them contained in a smaller area, they are also more accustomed to humans and there are not as many top predators. In contrast, in San Pedrillo, they are in their completely natural environment, the animals are more elusive, and are more on the prowl, due to the fact that there are more large predators, such as pumas, jaguars, hawks, snakes, etc., which makes it more difficult to see them.
In our opinion, the trails in San Pedrillo are unique because of the interaction between prey and predator in a very natural environment. The trails are more solitary, you will feel like you are in a real jungle, surrounded by huge trees and lush forest. Our Corcovado tours focus on enjoying nature as pure as possible.
Our excursions to Corcovado focus on the experience that you can live in very natural surroundings, long walks, with trails as solitary as possible. Therefore, we always say, in the Overnight tour what makes the difference is the experience, spending two days in nature, sleeping in a place without light and far away from everything, beyond what you can see, the important thing is what you are going to live.
The trails in Sirena are very easy, only in rainy season they get muddy. In San Pedrillo, there are uphill and downhill parts, lots of roots and rocks.
In the rainy season (May to November) the trails are generally very muddy and it is advisable to wear trekking shoes that grip your ankles. In the dry season, you can go with lighter shoes, as the trails become easier, but we always recommend that they have a good grip on the ankles to prevent injuries.
You will always be accompanied by a certified Corcovado National Park guide.
