I had the most utterly relaxing stay at the Amaya Family Cabins (aka Poor Man's Paradise) in March with my sister The stay starts with a 1.5 hour boat ride from Sierpe. Bill, who helped us make our reservation, had alerted the boat company in advance that we would be coming, and indeed they were expecting us. The boat was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Amaya Family Cabins is located on the Amaya family homestead along remote Playa Ricon on the Peninsula de Osa. This is the last frontier of Costa Rica. Accessible reliably only by horseback or boat this is the world of generations past. The Amaya Family Cabins are next to one of the most biologically important spots on the planet, Corcovado National Park. Playa Ricon itself is virtually uninhabited where the only traffic seen is occasionally on horseback. Many of the local inhabitants on and behind the beach are related to the Amaya family, who were pioneers in this special corner of Costa Rica. ... more   less
