After a relaxing afternoon and evening at the ecolodge, we headed out the next morning for our hike into Corcovado National Park to Sirena Station. We spent two nights here with our guide Felipe and walkedout on the 3rd day. The hike into the park is about 8 miles with several stretches along sandy beaches. There are a couple of passes along rocky headlands, so its important to time the hike with the tides.
