Established in 1975, and encompassing an area of 263 square miles, Corcovado is widely considered the crown jewel in the extensive system of national parks and biological reserves spread across the country of Costa Rica.
Not only is the park very popular with tropical ecologists, but any visitor, regardless of their background can expect to see an abundance of wildlife. Corcovado is large enough to support a sizeable population of the endangered Baird’s Tapir, as well as large herds of white-lipped peccaries, hundreds of bird species, and several species of large cats (including jaguars, ocelots, cougars and margay). One hundred and forty species of mammals call the park home, which represents 10% of the entire mammal-species in America! If you came to Costa Rica to see the wildlife in its most natural form, as far from civilization as is currently possible, Corcovado National Park is for you.
