We did the 3 day hike from Carate to Sirena Station & back with an extra day to hike around Sirena. You can see a lot on a one day tour, but you can see virtually everything on your wishlist if you spend at least one night at Sirena Station. Here's what we saw during our three days with Surcos...

This hike is not for the faint of heart. We did the Carate-Sirena-Carate hike which is basically a one night round trip hike to Sirena Ranger Station. It's a total of 20km into Sirena, stay overnight, and then 20km back the next day. Total of $431 for two people. We paid additional $25 each for very good dinner at Sirena... More

We had a great time hiking from Carate to Sirena and spending two nights there in late january 2017. It was tiring but all the more rewarding. We saw loads of wildlife and are still in awe of this place. Our thanks particularly go to our guide, Keller, who thrived to show us as many animals as he could and... More

We went for a day hike in Corcovado with Rinaldo and saw a lot of wildlife! Rinaldo met us at our airbnb very early in the morning and rode with us to the park, pointing out a lot of awesome wildlife along the way. Corcovado is absolutely gorgeous and over the corse of the day we saw a sloth, all... More

My partner and I just completed the 3D2N tour Drake Bay - Sirena - La Leona and had the best time. A week before, Diana helped me with several emails to clarify much of the misinformation about Corcovado. There've been many rule changes, and probably will be more. Our guide Enrique was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable not only about animals... More

We drove to Drake crossing the Sierpe river- easy drive with a 4X4 and spent 2 nights at Sirena Ranger Station with our guide Jose. Surcos Tours did an outstanding job arranging everything for us even giving us Jose's phone number so that we could talk to him prior to booking. Jose is a young man that speaks perfect English...

The tour in the Park was superb. We had a great guide Emilio, very professional, accommodating and attentive. What I am suggesting it is to do the tour in 3 days and to take the flight to Sirena for the go or return.

This was a superbly organised trip from start to finish. My friend and I were backpacking Costa Rica alone and wanted to finish our trip with a guided tour in Corcovado. In preparation for the tour, Kathya was always quick to reply to our emails and answer our (many!) questions. My friend has a couple of health issues and was... More

We took the three day, two night tour to Sirena with our guide Bolivar. He met us at 5:30 am, about half an hour before the start of the tour, at our accommodation in Agujitas, Drake, and went with us to the beach where we had a 70 minute boat ride to a beach near the ranger station at Sirena,...
