Copa de Arbol is just special. Max capacity is about 25 guests. Situated at the edge of the Corcavado rainforest and with Cano Island directly off the coast for awesome fishing a diving. Snorkeling right out front was very cool, but visibility was just so-so after afternoon rains. We had a family of 5 with 3 teenagers and we had... More

We came here last year as part of our honeymoon, and it was just incredible! Words will not do it justice! The adventure of getting there was an amazing experience, very organised and they made us feel so welcome from the very beginning. Our room was stunning with the most beautiful sea view. The personal service made it feel like... More

Copa de Arbol is the most amazing place....the location, the accommodations, the staff, and the food were all top notch!!! We were there celebrating my parents 50th anniversary this August, and absolutely loved it. We stayed 7 nights and were able to really see and do everything that the area has to offer: rainforest zip line tour, snorkeling, hiking in... More

I am a retired Corporate Travel Consultant and have visted various hotels, inns, boutique hotels, etc. Copa de Arbol is by far the most incredible place to stay. The rooms are perfect with a Costa Rican flare set on the edge of the rainforest in your very own tree house! The staff are warm welcoming friendly wonderful people. Randall is... More

My husband and I have stayed at Copa de Arbol three times – our trip in late 2012 proved so wonderful that we have been back twice since. My January 2013 review provides details on the excellent staff and customer service, beautiful and comfortable rooms, and exquisite dining available at this lodge. We are happy to report that the lodge... More

My wife and I stayed here for five nights. We looked for a place with amenities like air-conditioning and good food, yet also a place that takes the incredible nature seriously, allows for quiet time and is a great jump off point for other activities. We found it ALL here. We have to highlight the fantastic staff though: Rendall, Rudy,... More

Our second trip to CDA was even better than our first! Why? Because we stayed longer! We are a family of five with an intense love for nature and adventure. CDA afforded us the opportunity to experience some of the most remarkable wildlife anywhere in the world. Over our six day stay we saw over 100 different species of animals... More

We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica, and our visit to Copa de Arbol was so special, I'm not sure how to sum it up in words. I had been reading reviews on Tripadvisor for months and everything you read is true. The food IS amazing. The cabinas ARE amazing. The property, the pool, it's all amazing. The... More

We are finally sitting down to write our review. It's been a whirlwind summer and we can't let this go any longer. Our first trip to Costa Rica included a 3 night stay at the Copa de Arbol. We are 40 and 41 and our kids are 13,11 and 7 and consider ourselves a pretty adventurous family. Our trip began... More

I really don't have much to add to the other reviews. The room was just beautiful! spacious, quality throughout. The staff are delightful and genuine. You are surrounded by the jungle with monkeys trying to raid the kitchen and toucans flying by during lunch. The naturalist on staff, Jose, was great. He took us to the National park for a... More
