We stayed her in January 2015 and this was the best place of many places we stayed in our month in Costa Rica. Edu and Sabina are passionate enthusiasts of local bird and wildlife and we had many close encounters with all sorts of beautiful creatures. On top of that, they have the most delightfully secluded and peaceful spot in... More

We stayed at the farm for four nights enjoying the community, diving and snorkeling at Canos and hiking near and far. The food is fabulous and wisely choose to board. The facilities are authentic, clean and add to the natural experience.no electricity except by solar for battery recharge, cold water bathrooms. Brush teeth by candle light! Beds are a bit... More

Edu and Sabrine are wonderful hosts at their tranquil and peaceful farm by the sea. Great food, lovely company and comfortable, clean and simple accommodation. It is a great place to hang out for a few days and recharge your batteries with small walks through the local forest and wonderful sunsets over the sea and lagoon. The tiny runway next... More

We were traveling during 12 days in Costa Rica end of 2014/2015. The last four nights we spent at "Rio Drake Farm" and we consider this was the best place of our entire trip. Why? simple, very private, submerge in the nature, just 200m away from a splendid beach, surrounded animal activities (birds, monkeys) and quite isolated from civilization. We... More

This is a very secluded and beautiful place next to the river, jungle and ocean beach. All rooms are made with a good taste and the walls are hand painted with pictures of costa rica animals. The location is outstanding, I cannot imagine a better place to stay for Corcovado. We strongly recommend to take tours with Edu, poisonous dart... More

We (couple with 10-year old son) went to the Osa peninsula for the Corcovado park, which is great (if your vertebrae survive the shocks of a very rough boat ride)... however, I must admit that most of the animal sightings happened at the very place we stayed at - the Rio Drake farm. Not that we didn't see any in... More

I stayed 3 nights at Rio Drake Farm and felt welcomed the moment Edu picked me up from the Boat. Edu and Sabrina are very nice hosts and they also cook delicous meals. The room was spotless clean and the bed very comfy. Loved the silence, the wildlife and candle light at night as well as the thousand stars. Sabrina... More

Rio Drake Farm is a place of Real Escapism. It has 2 very nice owners who looked after me and my wife very well. The owners, Sebrina & Edu, book the tours for you then drop you off and pick you up so that everything is very convenient. The food is very healthy and well prepared and the layout of... More

This lovely hostel had just the pura vida I was looking for when I traveled to Costa Rica: No electricity, no internet, no traffic, a tiny village in 15 minutes walking distance, pure nature with animal sounds around and adventurous trails through the forest to lonely beaches and last but not least a charming couple who is running the hostel....

Far away from civilisation: no electricity, no tv, no wifi. It's the perfect place for the nature lovers. You wake up in the morning with the sounds of the monkeys :), close to the beach, forest, laguna, ... . A good base camp for corcovado trip.
