Are Osa peninsula hotels for me?
Osa Peninsula eco-lodges pride themselves in keeping the environment intact. They have developed remarkable eco-sustainable systems to achieve a perfect equilibrium of comfortable accommodations with (almost) all modern amenities at hand. And still keeping their immediate surroundings unspoiled! With the dense tropical jungle encircling each remote property, it’s no easy task to accommodate every client’s whim. Yet these hotels go above and beyond to do so, and succeed in it!
Our clients that visit the area—year after year—give these boutique properties top ratings. Outstanding service in the middle of the jungle is certainly something to be thankful for! And while having no TV sets in the rooms can be seen as a drawback by some, these hotels know what their clients really want—a true jungle experience!
The Corcovado National Park, a dream destination for many nature enthusiasts, is set on the southwest part of the Osa Penisula. It can be reached from two gateway destinations—Drake Bay and Puerto Jimenez. The Drake Bay is on the north side of the peninsula. And Caño island—the second major attraction in the area—is just under an hour away by boat. The tiny town of Carate, near Puerto Jimenez, serves as the southern gateway to visit the park.
There are three accommodation options in the Drake Bay area that we recommend. All are perfect for observing the nature and wildlife, and participating in numerous rainforest and marine activities. Anyone looking for a slightly more luxurious arrangements, with A/C (!) in their rooms will be thrilled with the Indonesian-style tree-houses and genuinely friendly and helpful staff of Copa del Arbol. Aguila de Osa, besides the equally great service offers a bit more authentic, Costa Rican lodging. It has natural wood furnishings and basic amenities. Casa Corcovado offers spacious and comfortable bungalows, set right on the verge of the national park. Enjoy amazing sunsets over the Caño Island, from their Margarita Sunset Bar!
Lapa Rios, on the southern part of the peninsula, is another great option for staying while visiting the area. This eco-sanctuary is frequently praised as a one of the top eco destinations in the world! And rightfully so. Its eco-sustainable program is an example to many other hotels, who strive to emulate it in their own environments. The lodge features open-sided, thatched roof bungalows, overlooking the Pacific ocean. Vacation packages pre-include many on-site tours, filling your days with amazing activities.
If you choose to have your Costa Rica vacations on the Osa peninsula, we promise it will be a vacation of a lifetime!
