... the cool creek water felt very refreshing through the boots.



The next day we went into Corcovado National Park. It is very difficult to access requiring either a very long hike to reach one of the Ranger stations, carrying everything you need with you, a very expensive private flight landing on a strip of grass, or a one hour boat trip from Drake with a wet landing both ends on the beach. Not surprisingly we opted for the boat! It was a pleasant ride and we ...

... 14 passengers each. Then it was a hair raising high speed race of an hour along the river and out into the Pacific to reach Drake in time for the captain to return before dark.

When Jan did the research it looked like these trips were a bit hit and miss in terms of actually going ahead hence why we are going into the park to Sirena from the other side and on foot.

... us two times just as we were about to surface.

One of our day trips included going into Corcovado National Park. We took a one hour boat ride to the other side of the pennisula and had a guide to show us around for the next five hours.
