Many people travel to Costa Rica for the beautiful beaches. The beaches there are known worldwide for their beauty. One of the most remote but beautiful beaches is the Corcovado Beach in the Parque Nacional Corcovado.

Why Travel There?

If you love nature, you’ll love this part of Costa Rica. Here, you’ll find one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Four different species of monkeys, two species of crocodiles, four large cat species, and many small mammals and birds are located here.

When to Travel

Since this national park is located in one of the most remote areas of the country, only attempt travel in the dry season. During the wet season, it might be hard to get into the park. You can get there by traveling along the beaches from the north and south. From the east, take a 13km hike from east to west.

The Beach

The beach at Corcovado is beautiful, but deadly. Black sand covers the beach, leading into the rain forest. The tides are especially strong here and sharks are always present in the waters. The crocodiles there can tolerate salt water, which means you need to watch for them, too.

This national park area offers a lot to do, including hiking and bird watching. You will need to be careful of the natural wildlife, as well as the tides and crocodiles. Bring plenty of water when visiting to avoid dehydration. A portable water sanitation device would be helpful too.
