We spent 3 days and made the hike from Carate. The hike and the time at the Ranger station was awesome. We were very impressed about our passionate guide Oscar. He really took good care of us and you could feel his experience and very passionate way of guiding in the wildlife. He knew all the sounds/smell/trail of all the... More

Surcos were immediately able to help us and kept in constant contact. Kathya answered any questions we had in and extremely timely manner. She had great tips. Then we met our guide Keller and could not have been happier! He was willing to help us shop for food and had everything planned out. I also think he knows literally everyone... More

I met Nito on my first trip into the Corcovado National Park in 2011. Already then I learnd how much more you can discover with the help of a local guide. Now (2017), we did the full trip under guidance of Surcos Tours, and it was amazing. Nito, Thomas, and the entire crew really like what they do - and... More

If you are searching for the best guide and tour company for your upcoming trip to Corcovado National Park (or anywhere in the Osa Peninsula) look no further. I am an independent world traveller who relies on Tripadvisor and its travel forums, Lonely Planet and Thorn Tree plus an assortment of other research tools. Tripadvisor is hands down my all...

Our trip to Corcovado Park and stay at Sirena station was made possible by the skilled and kind folks at Surcos Tours. Our guide, Keller, was exceptional: kind, knowledgeable and funny. Diana helped organize an amazing trip and worked hard to make sure all the details were taken care of. Highly recommend visiting Sirena station for those willing to put... More

I definitely count this experience as one of the coolest things I have done in my life! My boyfriend and I booked a 3-day tour with Surcos through Estela, who was great -- always in touch and helpful with any questions we had in the long lead up to the hike. Margarita in the office was also very helpful once... More

We have booked the 2 days hike from Carade to Sirena Ranger station with overnight stay at Sirena through Surcos Tour. Communication was very easy with always fast response. We had Bolivar as our guide and it has been for sure the highlight of our roundtrip in Costa Rica. In total you will hike almost 50 km, 30 % on... More

This trip is an amazing way to experience Corcovado park. I started planning at the last minute during high season, which I highly recommend avoiding. I contacted numerous tour companies, hotels, and even the individual guides ( you can get their contact info from the park directly). Surcos was amazing. They were able to fit me in after a last...

A couple of weeks ago I had a wonderful experience doing the 3-day tour leaving from drake bay to Sirena in Corcovado. I had to set up the tour on relatively short notice, and the ranger station had been closed due to weather etc., but Surcos was able to get everything set up despite the complications. Logistics of getting to... More

If you ever want to hike corcovado national park, make sure to hire this company. Furthermore, if you are lucky enough, try to request this name: Luis Enrique as your guide. He's so patient, knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about his job. Thanks Kathya from the admin team of Surcos tours for organizing such a successful trip!
