5 times! My hat's off to you...that's a long way up. And absolutely true...I thought we might camp in Corcovado, but turns out I didn't even need it. Instead we spent 2 nites in a canvas cabina overlooking the beach...with cold cervezas and fresh cooked meals...for about $40us a nite, as I recall....the road out to Carate had a half dozen water crossings, and then about a mile and a half hike in along the beach...
