The Corcovado National Park is on the Oso Peninsula and can only be accessed by walking or talking a boat to it. I stayed at Drake Bay just outside the park. The first day I had a hammock day, the second day I went snorkelling near the Caño Island and the third day walking in the park. By the way on the 9th February 3/4 of my trip is over.
