If you are looking for peace and quiet and beautiful nature this is the place to stay. Just a few steps from the lodge there is primary rainforest where you can spot monkeys, sloths, toucans, macaws and other exotic birds and animals. On the beach next to the lodge you can see the most amazing sunsets, and the best thing is that it is almost always deserted. Edu, the owner, has a passion for what he does and is always willing to help you with whatever you need. He organized a trip for me to the national park Corcovado, an absolute must for those interested in seeing animals. Also he cooks very nice food and gives you free coconuts whenever you want. This little paradise is the most amazing place I have ever been to, and I will definitely stay here again one day.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

If you want to stay in this south-western corner of Costa Rica, one of the most beautiful places in the world, near unspoilt primary rainforest and the beach where Sir Francis Drake buried his treasure, and don't have the budget of a multimillionaire, stay here. The warm hospitality and unfailing generosity of the host, Edu (Sabrina was away when we stayed) more than compensates for the cold showers and lack of electricity.

Next to the Drake Bay airstrip (recently tarmacked), this ecolodge is a pure delight for lovers of wildlife. We saw Jesus Christ lizards, iguanas, innumerable frogs and countless birds, from vultures to colourful tanagers, literally just outside our door, as well as macaws, toucans and flocks of parakeets within a hundred yards, while in the National Park nearby coati, agouti and monkeys abound (not to mention the odd deadly snake). Any tours or transfers are faultlessly organized by the ever patient and attentive Edu, and there are fascinating free walks on the beaches and around the village. Meals are provided at reasonable prices (for Costa Rica, not the cheapest place on earth), and are delicious.

If you take up this recommendation come by light aircraft (we ended up participating in a search-and-rescue mission when we took this option) or by boat via the mangroves. Finally, head torches and plenty of DEET will improve your experience of this most remarkable of locations - a stay you will never forget.
