Dec 2, 2010 - Corcovado National Park - or -So that's why it's called a rain forest

Corcovado National Park – the most biologically intense place on earth – according to National Geographic anyway. It is a protected area of rainforest, some parts of which have, allegedly, never been touched by man. Having booked our places we set off once again in the cattle truck collectivo, for the four hour journey to Carate, from here we had a 3 km hike along the beach to our first night's camp at La Leona Ranger Station. Our camp site was right on the beach, shared with five others we were hiking in with. A 5.00am start the next...

Aug 2, 2008 - Corcovado National Park

We drove all night to get here! Well, actually, we didn't drive all night...but we did sleep in the car! Heavy rain, terrible roads, a late start and a little episode involving running out of gas made for an exciting journey down to Corcovado. But, it was worth the trouble. It is supposed to be one of the most biologically active places in the world. We saw 3 types of monkey, tons of Tucans, Macaw parrots...the list goes on and on. We were also able to cool off in one of the many waterfalls in the area...it was our first shower in a while!

It was quite evident that neither of us were proper campers or "let s go...

EZ Duz it!

Jun 5, 2004 - Bahia Drake, Costa Rica

Caught the 5am bus !! We were the only backpackers going there. Bit scarey, but worked out fine. Shared car to Sierpe, then boat down the Rio Sierpe to Bahia Drake on the Osa Peninsula. Amazing place. National Geographic describe it as the "most biologically intense place in the world". We stayed in a 'posh tent' - had 2 beds, and a canopy over the top, and mosquito net at the front. Unbelievable view from our bed, looking out of the tent right onto the Pacific Ocean. Meals included in price. TS negotiated a good price (some things haven't...
