This hotel non longer exists and is not in business anymore. There is a new property is being constructed there as the location is really nice. Drake Bay is a great place to visit and you can find other options on Trip Advisor

Although my husband and I stayed here just under a year ago, we had such a good time that, although it’s late, I knew I had to post this review as Fernando and his family were so lovely. We arrived in Drake’s Bay in the Corcovado for the last few days of our 19-day trip to Costa Rica in March... More

We stayed 3 nights ( 25-28.4.12) in the Tentcamp. From the moment we arrived, Fernando, the owner, made us feel like home. It was a very warm and charming welcome. The tents are quite comfortable, we had 3 beds for the two of us. There is no light in the tent itself, so don't forget to bring a flashlight! Every... More

We stayed four days at this place and had a really great time. Fernando is an excellent host and always supported us in organizing the jungle trips and answered every question we had. His wife is moreover an excellent cook and we experienced real Costarican food. The tents are tents and not an apartment hotel. But this is what we... More

We spent 16 days traveling thru Costa Rica and this was by far one of the best experiences. Fernando and his entire family are terrific. The tent is set on a beautiful hillside high above Drake Bay. We enjoyed a refreshing breeze, hot showers and the cleanest of accomodations. Our platform had a private bathroom, two comfortable beds, deck chairs,... More

In all fairness, we were not guests of this establishment. Our host at the Finca Maresia where we did stay, sent us across the back road to Fernando's hotel to have our lunches every day. I know that spending several hours every day at this delightful "inn across the road" enjoying delicious and very nutritious meals while chatting with the... More

Myself (29 yr old professional), a friend (27 yr old female professional) and my youngest brother (19 yr old college student) stayed at Pura Vista in January 2012 after checking other places out. This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting Drake Bay. In short, it has the best view in the area, the accomodations are quite... More

We also tried to book at Finca Maresia, as per the Lonely Planet, but it was fully booked. We were adviced the Pura Vista Eco Camp instead and it was delightful. The nice, clean and furnished tents are great. The family atmosphere makes it local, food is good and the view to the Bahia Drake from the restaurant terrace is... More
