Note: For your safety and convenience Costa Rica Expeditions does not use either of Costa Rica's domestic, regularly scheduled airlines.

Flight times depend on the tide, as the walk from Carate to Corcovado Lodge (and vice versa) is on the beach. Walking at high tide can be difficult, as the waves will be washing in over your feet. By programming our flights two hours before/after the high tide, we avoid this difficulty.
