“La Joyita is absolutely delightful! And Peter is the ideal host! Ahead of the trip Alexis was incredibly helpful in organizing our stay, and while we there Peter was delightfully present and always looking out for us. This small comfortable cabina is perfectly located for privacy, beach access, pick up & drop off for numerous boat trips, and a comfortable 20 minute mostly beach walk to “town”. Drake Bay is an out-of-the-way gem , and while there are tourists around, it’s easy to find isolated adventures, both on beaches and along rainforest trails. While the group trips to Cano Island, La Serena , and Los pedrillos were great and full of wonderful plants, marine life, land animals, & exotic birds, our favorite activity was walking the forested trail south towards Corcovado, past beautiful little beaches and rivers. La Tortuga restaurant (closest one walking towards town) was delicious and reasonably priced. We loved it here, and are looking forward to returning! Thanks Peter & Alexis for being such great hosts!”

“Wonderful! I would give the Tico-Gringo cabins more than 5 stars if I could. The cabins are located in a peaceful setting, with many towering tropical plants and flowering bushes. Sitting on the balcony, I saw so many colourful butterflies and birds, including toucans and parrots, as well as little white-faced monkeys. Gringo even puts fruit out in front of one of the cabins to attract the birds for you. The location is great, with around a ten-minute walk to the beach and restaurants, and a five-minute walk to the nearest market. The rooms in the cabins are large, bright and clean, with well-equipped kitchens. The Wi-Fi worked perfectly all the time. Best of all are the hosts, Sonia and Yeiner (known as Gringo). They live on the property so are always there to help you. They are generous, kind and friendly. Sonia keeps your room clean, replacing towels and bedding regularly. Watch for her artistic touches. Gringo will help you organize tours, recommend restaurants and suggest hikes that are not so well known. They make sure you always have a big container of fresh drinking water. Staying at Tico-Gringo made my vacation extra special, and I would definitely stay there again.”
Casa Claro del Bosque is located a few steps from the beach, in Las Caletas area of Drake Bay, away from the main town (~4 km) known as Agujitas. Las Caletas area is magic and mystic, where miles of solitary pristine beaches and rainforest meet to make a delightful relaxing place to explore and live nature. This home suits those who want to reconnect with nature, adventure-minded, outdoors seekers, nature lovers, and those who look for a remote vacation spot, without crowded beaches.
“If you are looking for a unique and memorable experience in a more remote area of Costa Rica - this is it! Our experience staying at Familia Riba de La Ossa’s place absolutely exceeded expectations. The beach house is incredible. Be prepared for open windows (no glass) and enjoy the beautiful tranquility of the tropical rainforest which is located very close to the beautiful beaches. Its remote location means you need to make sure you load up on groceries and supplies as stores and other amenities are not close by but that’s what makes this location so special. It is best designed for those that love to walk as their beautiful place is located along the coastal path that stretches for miles where you can explore beautiful beaches and the dense tropical rainforest: home of white-faced monkeys and many other wildlife. Their hospitality is outstanding and so helpful with local tips. Be sure to get to Corcovado National Park and don’t miss out on the zip lining that can all be arranged by this wonderful host. You do not need a car here as the roads are pretty rough but a driver can be arranged for transport from the airport and in and out of Drake Bay. Can’t say enough about our stay here.”
