We went to the Osa for the wildlife and we were not disappointed. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful birds and the guided trips you take with Carlos will allow you to put names to what you see and allow you to see what you are missing that is plainly there, whether looking for birds or nightlife. Carlos is an excellent naturalist. After many years of guiding, he will be just as excited as you to see an anteater, a Toucan our a pair of squawking scarlet macaws. The guides provided; for the Cano snorkleing trip and the Corcavodo trip were also excellent.
The Rancho Corcovado Lodge..like all Drake Bay hotels is off the beaten path and more easily reached by water taxi than by land. Roger, the host is hardworking and accomodating. The included breakfast was very good and complete daily dinners are available for a reasonable price. Our room was clean, spacious and included a/c that worked well. Make sure you ask for a/c if you want it. The beach is fantastic and our Divine Dolphin tour pucked us up out front.. Great Costa Rica experience.
