Group Trips to Corcovado Costa Rica

Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica is widely regarded as one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world. Located on the Osa Peninsula, it covers over 42,000 hectares of pristine wilderness and is home to an incredible array of wildlife, including monkeys, jaguars, tapirs, and over 350 species of birds. Corcovado was once declared the biologically most intense place on Earth by the National Geographic.  


One of the most unique features of Corcovado is its untouched wilderness. Unlike many national parks, which have been developed with trails and infrastructure, Corcovado remains largely wild and untamed, offering visitors the chance to truly immerse themselves in nature. The park is also home to a number of unique habitats, including tropical rainforests, mangrove swamps, and tidal lagoons, making it an important centre for conservation and research. Visitors to Corcovado can participate in a variety of eco-tourism activities, such as guided hikes, wildlife watching, and snorkelling. Whether you're an experienced hiker or a nature enthusiast, there's something for everyone in the park. For those seeking a more immersive experience, there are also longer backpacking and camping trips available.


While Corcovado is a must-visit for anyone interested in conservation and wildlife, it's important to approach the park with respect for its delicate ecosystem. Visitors should take care not to disturb the wildlife or damage the environment, and follow the park's rules and regulations at all times. Overall, Corcovado National Park is a truly incredible destination that offers a unique blend of natural beauty and biodiversity. Rainforest, cloud forest, dry forest, incredible beaches, 112 volcanoes (active and dormant), turtle nesting sites, different altitudes, and microclimates.


And not only that, but Costa Rica also has a rich unexplored history, fine gastronomy, and art expressions for you to discover. These make for unique and authentic travel experiences that no other country can offer, perfect for small group travel in Costa Rica. The Costa Rican people are rightly proud of their culture and their achievements. Especially when you consider that this is a country with a population of just over 5 million people. What many people who have visited find the most memorable is the friendliness of the Costa Ricans. They are remarkably polite and accommodating, mainly because most of them have an authentic desire to make you always feel at home.
