SIRENA AND SAN PEDRILLO OVERNIGHT

The tour starts at 6:00 am at the main beach of Drake Bay, Playa Colorada. We take the boat to Sirena Station, this trip lasts approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, with luck, on the boat ride we will have the opportunity to see marine animals such as whales, dolphins, etc..

We disembark on the beach of the Sirena sector, where we will put on our shoes to begin the first hike.

In this tour the trails are short, well marked, and flat. The objective of this part of the tour is to interact with the group and try to see as many animals as possible, since in the Sirena sector the animals are more accustomed to humans, and there are few top predators. The most common animals to see are small mammals such as monkeys, coatis, agoutis, etc.

This hike ends at noon, when we take the boat to the San Pedrillo Sector.

The boat ride between Sirena and San Pedrillo takes about 45 minutes, we disembark in the wildest sector of Corcovado.

THIS IS WHERE THE ADVENTURE BEGINS!

In this tour the trails are irregular, wilder and in a more natural environment, we start walking to the San Pedrillo Waterfall where we will have lunch and refresh ourselves in fresh water pools.

The objective of this part of the tour is to get to know one of the only primary rainforests in the world, with ancient trees, forests over 3000 years old, land of top predators, such as pumas, jaguars, etc.

Here the animals are more elusive and maintain their natural behavior, so it is more difficult to see them, but you can get a great surprise, like seeing a tayra hunting a sloth, or a puma hunting a spider monkey.

The main reason why we love this part of the tour is because of the interaction between prey and predators, even if it is just hearing or feeling them, it is something magical. We will walk on trails that only we walk, always looking for the purest and most adventure oriented.

Here you will feel the force of nature, you will feel small and spied.

In this part of the tour the pace of the walk is faster, mainly to be able to surprise the animals that are very elusive and to be able to arrive at the station before nightfall.

Once we have covered a total of 20 kilometers and arrived safe and sound at the station, we will have dinner and get ready to rest, for today we have lived enough adventure.

The next day, we wake up to the sounds of the jungle, have breakfast and recharge energy for the last part of the tour.

In this hike you will walk about 9 km, always visiting wild trails and away from humans.

You will have the opportunity to bathe in freshwater rivers, and see a beautiful waterfall and we arrive at noon to the sector of Los Planes where we take lunch and a 4X4 awaits us to leave us in Drake.
