Hidden in the Osa Peninsula
Tucked in the outer ridge of the Osa Peninsula, Copa de Arbol is ultimately only reachable by boat.
The easiest way to arrive is to take an hour flight from the San José International Airport to the Drake Bay airstrip. Then it’s a half-an-hour drive to the bay itself. The hotel staff takes care of your luggage while you hop out of the boat onto the breathtaking beach.
If you arrive by car, you can stop at Palma Sur town, where a boat picks you up for a longer ride to Copa.
Jungle Luxury with World-Class Service
Copa de Arbol is the place to enjoy seclusion and nature. Wake up to the howls of monkeys and the songs of birds, surrounded by both the comforts of modern hospitality and the wild rainforest.
The hotel’s cabins are set along 70 acres of rainforest reserve between Drake Bay and Corcovado National Park.
The sweet-smelling Balinese-style bungalows are gorgeous. It is the only hotel in the area with A/C, allowing you to relax after a day outside in the jungle. To help you connect with your surroundings, the cabins have no TVs either. This combination lets you sit back and truly unwind.
Although being so off-the-grid makes for somewhat spotty reception, complimentary WiFi is available throughout the property and in rooms.
Strategic Location: The Best of Both Worlds
The hotel’s enviable location is perhaps its biggest draw. Visitors are just minutes from the beach, which features strong tides but stunning views of the crashing waves in the rocky areas. The rainforest teems with flora and fauna all around property, with birds, reptiles, mammals, and insects.
Explore the area nearby, looking above you for monkeys and scarlet macaws, and below you for rock pools and their resident fish. End the day by contemplating the massive starry sky, free of city lights, and then be lulled to sleep by the sound of ocean waves.
Everything about this Osa eco lodge is designed to let you enjoy this experience, enhanced by the detail-oriented attention of Copa’s staff. Warm, welcoming, and willing to help, everyone at Copa de Arbol works hard to make your stay the best possible Costa Rica vacation.
Off-the-Grid Rainforest & Beach Exploration
Copa de Arbol lets you choose the type of experience you want. Relaxation, nature exploration, and adventure are all possible here.
One of the main attractions is the off-site included tours to the nearby areas. There are guided hikes to Corcovado National Park (which protects 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity) and a scuba diving tour at Caño Island.
The tour to Corcovado takes about an hour boat ride from the hotel’s beach, and then it’s a hike through the trails to see the wildlife. The trip to Caño Island is another hour boat ride to the reserve off the Pacific coast.
Here you gear up and submerge yourself in the waters to spot the underwater marine life. Keep your eyes open to try to spot sea turtles, tropical fish, and even sharks!
If you want to explore on your own, head to the beach in front of Copa and walk half an hour to find other secluded beaches on your own.
Enjoy Nature & Relaxation at an Osa Eco Lodge
Take time to enjoy the additional amenities and services at this Osa eco lodge. Lounge on the cascading infinity pool, Jacuzzi, or in-room massage treatments.
If you want to do something more active, Copa de Arbol provides stand-up paddleboards and kayaks, and, of course, the hiking trails!
The surrounding jungle is pristine with cool creeks, towering trees, monkeys chattering above, and much more. The complete loop takes around 45 minutes.
Top-Notch Dining with Forest Views
The on-site restaurant and bar, Miramar, is located strategically to offer some of the best views of the property.
With an open-air design, it allows the ocean breeze to pass by. Showcasing the best local products, the meals are designed to mix the best international standards with Costa Rican flavors.
Freshly baked breads, specialty coffee, local produce, meats, and seafood make for exquisite dining at Copa de Arbol. Guests will be delighted with their full meal plan of breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the beachfront restaurant.
They also offer a fully-stocked bar for afternoon cocktails. Staff is very accommodating of dietary restrictions, with prior notice being essential due to their isolated location.
Cozy Pool in a Big Jungle
The infinity-edge pool is cozy but great to lounge while the hottest hours of the day go by.
Soak in and relax, admiring both the ocean view and the burst of greenery around it. The Jacuzzi is right next to it, so if you want to soothe any sore muscles this is the perfect spot to let the warm water do its magic.
Visit Costa Rica’s Wilderness
Certainly, Copa de Arbol is an off-the-beaten-path property that will undoubtedly appeal to nature lovers and those seeking for understated luxury in an exotic locale.
