Client comments and reviews
The flight to Palmar Sur and the onward boat trip to Casa Corcovado was something totally different and exciting. We did like the lodge and we had an excellent guide and saw a lot of wildlife and also enjoyed snorkelling by Caño Island. We were lucky enough to meet a tapir outside our bungalow. - PW (February 2017)
Casa Corcovado was a great experience with the bird watching and snorkelling and we also saw a humpback whale on our return boat trip. - CS (February 2011)
The flight was amazing. We were greeted at Palmar Sur by our guide Mario, who was to be our guide for the whole visit. We were a group of 7 that arrived together and we did everything together from then onwards. Our lodge and Corcovado was absolutely beautiful but I would have paid a lot of money whilst there for some air conditioning. The 2 arranged trips were both fantastic. Loved the swim in the river and the snorkelling was excellent. - S&MH (February 2010)
Casa Corcovado at the end of the holiday was the highlight. Beautiful lodge, good tours and excellent guides. - JB (February 2009)
Casa Corcovado was a little piece of heaven as far as we were concerned! We were very lucky with the group to which we were attached, and have made some good friends. We were even luckier with our guide who was excellent, very patient and had a good sense of humour. I think we wished we had booked in for longer! At least we now know it exists, we can always go back. - AS (February 2009)
Casa Corcovado is a beautiful place and offers good tours. The extra bird watching walks 5.30 to 6.30 are first class! They have a special site about 10 minutes walk from the hotel for 'sundowners' before supper - it's wonderful to watch the sunset and hear the jungle sounds. - RM (February 2007)
