There's a shop at the end of the road offering cold beer, bathrooms, showers and food for a cost. If you're headed into Corcovado you can park your car behind the store for $5 a day. Buy the old Canadian expat a beer and listen to some of his stories!

Great place at the end of the airstrip next to a small well. Much shore wood.

Report Check-In

Spent one night. COVID times. No one around. The road is not that bad and the rivers were (at this moment) shallow creeks.
The path along the airport is really narrow, as the jungle is taking over.

We slept here after the visit of Corcovado. Good spot to spend one night. During the day there is a small shop, where a guy sells cold drinks and coconuts.
In the morning at around 7am the first cars with the tour guides arrive to go inside The NP.
Parking was free for us here.

Report Check-In

The road down here from Puerto Jimenez is very bad and bumpy. You for sure need an 4x4 to get down here. There are a lot of potholes in the street and sometimes they are huge. You really need a lot of time to make it all the way down. The beaches tho are really nice and we also saw some Aras flying by.

the drive in was rough the dirt road was oil canned all the way approx. 2 to 3 hours The river crossings were easy . the water level was low. the temp on our thermometer read 44 C. there is a nice place beside the landing strip where you can eat or just have a cold coke or beer. there are several places to camp on beach with shade. on the way in we saw several blue butterflies the size of your hand. well worth the drive charters and jennifer

Took a camper van here and did not need 4x4, but if it was raining, I probably would have gotten stuck. Used palm and coconut fronds to drive up on the sand. Worked pretty well but had to dig out when we left. Definitely 4x4 recommended out here but you can manage if you are careful and lucky. You won't find a more secluded, beautiful area! You can use bathrooms/ showers other establishments have if you ask around and are friendly.
