Overnight Copa De Arbol. Dinner included
Corcovado National Park Hike
National Geographic famously labeled it “the most biologically intense place on the planet,” and this characterization is memorialized in nearly every abbreviated web description of the park in existence. The park contains the largest contiguous expanse of primary tropical rain forest north of the Amazon basin, it is frequently reported and is widely known to contain within its boundaries 2.5% of the biodiversity of the entire planet. While this biodiversity is partly explained by Corcovado’s geographic location along the land bridge connecting the North and South American continents, the diversity of forest types within Corcovado itself is a strong predictor of zoologic diversity as well. At least thirteen distinct vegetation types identified within the park boundaries provide habitat for a mind-numbing list of animal species. Overnight Copa De Arbol. Breakfast, lunch and dinner included.
Today is yours to enjoy however you wish. Why not chill at the beach, relax at your hotel’s pool or make use of the Stand Up Paddle Boards your hotel provides free of charge. If you are really feeling the urge to relax maybe a couples massage would be a nice way to finish your honeymoon. Overnight Copa De Arbol. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.
