La Leona is the main access by land to Corcovado National Park. It is a 2 hour drive from Puerto Jimenez. You will have the opportunity to see animals on the way as it is surrounded by forest. The trail after the station goes along the beach.

El Tigre Trail / 1 day tour

The trail is accessible from Dos Brazos, about 45 minutes by car from the house. The trail is 7 km long and is of high difficulty. It is recommended to have hiking experience (there are very steep slopes at the beginning) and to always be accompanied by a local guide. The trail passes through areas of the Golfo Dulce Forest Reserve (primary and secondary forest), through private farms and then into the park.
