Given the remote location and logistics of reaching Drake Bay, as well as the individual isolation of each hotel, nearly all the hotels listed below deal almost exclusively in package trips that include transportation, meals, tours, and taxes. I list the most common packages, although all the lodges will work with you to accommodate longer or shorter stays. Nightly room rates are listed only where they’re available and practical, generally at the more moderately priced hotels.

Guaria de Osa ★ (tel. 510/235-4313 in the U.S.; is a beautiful lodge near the Río Claro that specializes in yoga, spiritual, and educational retreats.

Copa del Arbol ★★ (tel. 831/246-4265 in the U.S., or 8935-1212 in Costa Rica; is another intimate jungle lodge located on the water’s edge about midway between the village of Drake Bay and the San Pedrillo ranger station at the entrance to Corcovado National Park.


For a moderately priced option, you might check out Finca Maresia ★ (tel. 2775-0279;, a pretty boutique property located between Drake Bay and the national park.
