Corcovado is a must see to experience a relatively untouched rainforest. Animals abound and plants are interesting. Go with a guide to get the most out of the experience.

A four hour guided walk through park - empty beaches with hammocks for a rest. Monkeys, sloth and crocodiles and only four other people plus the rangers seen - amazing
