Sirena Ranger Station - Corcovado

How to get to Sirena

Explore the most remote park ranger station

Sirena Ranger Station is the park ranger station that is more remote than any other. It is located in the heart of Corcovado, literally in the middle of the National Park, on the ocean. It is also known for being the best place to see wildlife species, including Tapirs, jaguars, Birds, and all three species of monkeys. It is highly regarded as the most bio diverse ranger station in the country.


There are three ways to get to Sirena. The first is by boat from Drake Bay, in a 1 hour boat trip. Another option is to cross the entire national park from the Los Patos ranger station on a 10 to 12 hour walk. The third option is to hike from the station of La Leona along the coast in a walk of 7 to 8 hours.


Sirena offers its own network of trails. The most common path starts at the Sirena River, crosses the rainforest and ends at the ranger station. Another walk is from the building of the Sirena station to the mouth of the Claro river. Another trail leaves the station and heads towards the Los Patos park ranger station. The wildlife in the area is great. It is very possible that you will find tapirs, 4 species of monkeys, hopefully even Ocelots, Pumas and much more.
