The closest of all the jungle lodges on the Drake Bay side of Corcovado National Park, Casa Corcovado has a collection of well-appointed individual and duplex bungalows built on the site of a former cacao plantation. Most of the former farmland has been reclaimed, and the whole operation is surrounded by dense primary forest. The property has two pretty swimming pools and a semi-private beach that is sometimes swimmable. Every afternoon, guests gather at “Margarita Sunset Point,” a grassy bluff on a high point overlooking the Pacific Ocean, for cocktails, snacks, and the sunset. Owner Stephen Lill is a dedicated environmentalist involved in numerous local conservation and sustainable-development projects.
