The marking and the maintenance of signs in the trails of the park is vital for the direction, the tour and the safety of the tourists. It contributes to the identification of animal and vegetable species and to expand the learning potential.
This is the logic and the rationale of the Project “Marking System in the touristic trails of Corcovado National Park” which started as of February of 2010.
Part of the activities to be carried out initially will be the posting of signs in the main trails or stations of Leona-Sirena, Los Patos-Sirena, San Pedrillo–Sirena and their complementary trails with informative and interpretive signs so that the tourist has an educational and safe trip.
