Costa Rica Corcovado National Park Adventure

Available to Club Members Only.

Corcovado is located in Costa Rica’s South Pacific region in the Osa Peninsula. National Geographic describes it as the “most biologically intense place on Earth in terms of biodiversity.” It contains over five percent of the world’s animal population and is a perfect location for nature lovers.

In our adventure category, we feature Dante Lodge. Within hiking distance of the western edge of Corcovado National Park, this artistically rustic lodge is reminiscent of an Adirondacks camp, with creatively designed wooden bungalows, and furniture made of sustainably sourced forest products. Traditional cuisine is served in an open-air restaurant.

Sea Kayaking in the Golfo Dulce: Slip into the temperate waters of Golfo Dulce, exploring the mangroves, the beautiful beaches, and the marine life in kayak. Embark from Playa Blanca, a Blue Flag certified beach that is seldom crowded, and enjoy a guided tour in this unique tropical fiord.

With a high possibility of seeing dolphins at play, sea turtles, birds preying on schools of fish, crustaceans, and much more. It is almost certain you will be serenaded by scarlet macaws and chestnut mandible toucans. Even experienced beach lovers will be amazed by the incredible Corcovado beaches.

Los Patos, Corcovado: A day trip to Los Patos is the best way to enjoy incredible views, pristine forest and the rich flora and fauna of the region. Walk in the footprints of the jaguars, see where all four species of monkeys live, or cross paths with wild pigs. This is an eco-challenge that will have you in awe of the neotropics, capturing the essence of what the National Geographic considers to be “the most biologically intense place on earth”. From the entrance it is around 6km walk inside the park. You will enjoy a tasty picnic lunch at the edge of small waterfall, where you can relax and reenergize before your descent to Danta Corcovado Lodge. Be prepared for a rigorous hike over steep terrain. Los Patos is a hidden gem right in the middle of the Osa Peninsula surrounded by primary forests, pre-montagne and cloud forests; it is definitively the wildest one.

You can spot species of birds like scarlet macaws and search for rare harpy eagles. there are tapirs, crocodiles, and all 4 species of monkeys found in Costa Rica - the howler monkeys, spider monkeys, the white-faced capuchin and squirrel monkeys. White-lipped Peccaries, amphibians like the red-eyed tree frog, anteaters, sloths, jaguars and pumas (unlikely, but not impossible) also make their home in these tropical jungles. Corcovado National Park is the nature lover's best friend.
