We didn't stay here, but visited for a long hike with a naturalist from Copa de Arbol resort in nearby Drake Bay. Wonderful hike on which we spotted many different species.

Your expectations for staying at the ranger station will determine how you experience it. And since I find it weird to review a ranger station, here is some general information about the station. I was there for two nights in a three-day hiking tour of Corcovado through Surcos Tours. The station is 16km from the Leona station in a large... More

The overnight in Corcovado park IS NOT WORTH it! We paid $275 US each. For four - two hour hikes in the exact same area - didn't get you further into the park - they were all around the ranger station! We met people all along the trails so the chances of seeing wildlife are NOT good! ALL trails circulate... More

I don't understand people who give negative reviews for a jungle station, who seem to be expecting Michelin stars. It is basic, but way better than trying to camp out in the actual jungle. You have a raised, covered area where everyone puts their tents. There are showers and toilets, which are private, but outside, so again, be prepared. The... More

Ok, so (in fairness), this ranger station is in the middle of the jungle. Literally, the middle of the jungle. And if you are used to camping, it’s probably not so bad. Also, they are working on improving it – they are in the middle of adding a new kitchen and ( I believe) are going to re-do the camping... More

Having walked a trail to Sirena that offers so much opportunity to see wildlife and to experience the tropical rainforest at its most beautiful it is regrettable that upon arrival at Sirena Ranger Station you are confronted with the most appalling facilities. The food is expensive and disgusting. Apparently there are two cooks who are rostered on and off. One... More

My husband and I have hiked in the Sirena area of Corcovado four times, and have had wonderful wildlife sightings each time. All of our excursions have been through our lodges in Drake Bay (La Paloma and Copa de Arbol) and have consisted of day trips, leaving around 6:00 or 6:30 am on the 90ish-minute boat ride. We have not... More

I'm not sure how you rate a ranger station! We popped in to have our picnic lunch during our hike around the NP. Clean loos. Spacious verandas and lots of wildlife around. Lots of macaws in the trees, iguana and Jesus Christ lizards. Look out for the tiny hermit crabs

Nowhere else in Costa Rica did we see as much wildlife as here. The only drawback is that you are not meant to head out at night. In terms of accommodation / food, the ranger station is very basic, but functional and provides the essentials (including generous meals at the end of the day). Loved it!

We arrived at la Siena after a long journey. We were greeted by a super friendly head of station, Hector. We put up our tent and had some dinner prepared in the stations kitchen. The place could have a more clean facilities but it's understandable that in the middle of the forest and receiving so may people it's hard to... More
