JUNGLE ACTIVITIES Trekking with our ranger on our educational trails at Avatar Eco Lodge with an accompanied speech and lecture about the local nature and wildlife. Expert treks with our rangers to the Corcovado National Park:
Full-day trekking around the La Leona ranger station for a total of 10 kilometers. This trekking experience will take you through the rainforest and beach for about 5 kilometers, with magnificent views and sightings along the way. On this journey you’ll see our wildlife and rainforest animals in their natural habitat such as our monkeys, pumas, anteaters and more, with an easy trekking difficulty suitable for kids and seniors as well. The trek starts at 5 am as we depart from Avatar and we expect to be back at the lodges around 4pm.
Our two day trek La Leona - Sirena is our most difficult trek that starts from ranger station Leona and leads to the Sirena ranger station with a total distance of 16 kilometers to cover. We continue our trek after an overnight stay at Sirena before heading back to Leona the next day. The sleeping conditions in Sirena are catered to and done in collective rooms where every trekker gets their own bed, a mosquito net with shared washrooms and warm food. The longer you stay within the National Park, the better the chances you have for sighting wildlife and discovering more of its’ natural beauty, which we highly recommend to our visitors. On this trekking adventure you’ll see much more than just the typical wildlife and if you choose to stay longer, the higher the chances you’ll have to spot some of our rarer animals such as our jaguars, pumas, snakes or wild pigs, frogs and more. Nearby the Sirena ranger station runs one of our local rivers where you can see bull sharks swimming through to hunt for prey during high tides and crocodiles heading towards the ocean to do the same, if interested (it is not possible to swim here).
The three day trekking trip Los Patos - Sirena - Leona is an extreme rainforest trekking trip that is ensured to be adrenaline filled for the adventurers looking for a true wildlife experience, and is mostly recommended for people in a good physical and psychological condition. The trek starts at the Los Patos ranger station where you begin with a challenging trek through rainforests of a 25 kilometer distance to arrive at Sirena where you will stay overnight. The next day is a bit more relaxing, you can do animal observing in the proximity of Sirena and the last day is the return back to Leona 16 kilometers along the coastline.
