Corcovado Tent Camp
part of the Costa Rica story by
Corcovado Tent Camp is a remote little settlement wedged between the
mountainside and the Pacific.
One sleeps in fairly elaborate tents on platforms. Each tent has two
single beds. There are pretty effective-looking screens, but we did
get bitten somewhat one night.
If you're too tired to move after hiking up Rio Madrigal, you can kick
back in the hammock room, which is a screened A-frame with good views
of the sunset. There's a bartender at night and an honor system
during the day. The refrigerator is a big block of ice in a cooler.
(The hotel has a generator but it is only operated during certain
Lunches are quite good and served family-style at two long tables.
The tent camp is run by
Costa Rica Expeditions and you have to book a
room through them because the tent camp has only a radio. Mostly
people book the tent camp as part of a package, but rates for the tent
alone are pretty reasonable (around $30/night).
