Costa Rica Travel – Starting this weekend the national parks Rincón de la Vieja, Tenorio and Corcovado reopen for tourists.
These three protected wild areas had to close their doors in late November following the impact of Hurricane Otto.
Once the emergency was over these spaces were kept closed while the park rangers checked for damage to the infrastructure and to ensure that the trails were safe for transit and cleaned up. Many roads were affected by the fall of trees and the saturation of soils.
Guanacaste Conservation Area (ACG) authorized the entry of tourists to Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park by the Pailas sector. This sector owns trails that lead the visitors to the fumaroles, lagoons and piles of mud.
Arenal Tempisque Conservation Area (ACAT) has also granted access to the path to the Celeste River waterfall, located in the Tenorio Volcano National Park.
As for the Corcovado National Park, the stations Sirena and Patos were enabled. In fact, the Osa Conservation Area (Acosa) authorized the admission of 100 people for daily visits to Sirena, as well as 50 people in the Patos station for this season.
The camp area at Sirena station has a limit stay of 60 people. However, Acosa warned visitors that the rivers are kept high and the rains persist, so they ask tourists to be cautious.
