Wildlife of Corcovado National Park

The wildlife in Corcovado National Park and Osa in general is considered extremely rich. The park has been called the most intense place on Earth when it comes to bio diversity, hosting thousands of species, among plants, trees, insects, amphibians, reptiles, mollusks, fish, birds and mammals. Some very endangered species inhabit the park, including the Jaguar, the largest cat in the Americas, the Tapir, the Crested Eagle, rare toucans, humming birds and also rare snakes, like the green tree boa and the black headed Bushmaster.

Our tours include two tours. The guided Corcovado Hiking trail tour will show you the amazing natural treasures of the tropical lowland rainforest in Corcovado, the rainiest place in Costa Rica, and the guided Cano Island Boat Tour will show you the richness of the marine and aquatic species. Caño Island is also surrounded by groups of Humpback Whales during the season, as well as dolphins, which is by itself a fantastic natural spectacle.
