Is it worth visiting Corcovado?

Why you should visit

While it is true that it is relatively expensive to visit Corcovado, and the time required is more than that required to visit other regions, it is worth visiting this natural wonder. For something is considered the place with the richest biodiversity in the world. Among the species that inhabit the park are Tapirs, Jaguars, Pumas, White Lipped Pecari, White-Collared Pecari, Anteaters, Lazy, 4 species of monkeys, snakes, frogs, tolomucos, coatis, raccoons, ocelots, other wildcats like Jaguardundi and Margays, and many other species. Bird species are equally endless. In what other part of the world can you see bull sharks sharing the habitat with crocodiles? It is possible to see a Tapir walking peacefully through the beaches of Sirena or San Pedrillo. The incredible extension of the park makes visiting the park, whatever the sector, provide an experience of isolation and total contact with nature, as it existed thousands of years ago. We definitely recommend Corcovado to all tourists whose main interest is flora and fauna. In Corcovado you will have the greatest possibility of seeing species of flora and fauna that are very rare to see.
