Traveling Ted is a blog that takes readers along on my adventures hiking, canoeing, skiing, and international backpacking. Many blogs focus on one aspect of backpacking, but I tackle both the outdoor adventure side and international exploration as well.

Sharing is caring!

Corcovado National Park

Welcome to the Sirena Ranger Station in Corcovado

National Geographic calls Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica ‘the most biologically intense place on earth.’ It will not take long for one to discover that the magazine does not lie if they hike any trail inside this magnificent pristine reserve.

Sirena Ranger Station is located in the heart of the 104,000 acre jungle along the coast. A full day’s hike will take adventure travelers into the park from either one of the three entry points: Los Patos, Carate, San Pedrillo.

For those not inclined to hike a day in the jungle or along the coast, there is also a fly in option from Puerto Jimenez or a boat in option from Drake Bay. This website will cover in more depth the logistics one will need to know in order to crack the Corcovado nut in future posts.
