Simply amazing. If I could give Copa de Arbol 10 stars I would. This resort is set in a remote part of Costa Rica near Drake Bay in the heart of the rainforest. You are surrounded by exotic wildlife such as monkeys, tucans, and sloths! The accommodations are beautiful-each family/couple is given their own separate cabana with a private balcony... More

Visited in March 2015. It's a long trek to get there; we traveled from Manual Antonio by van (3 hrs), then boarded a boat that zipped down a tidal river to the ocean (1 hr). At the mouth of the river, we had to jump crashing breakers between giant rocks (yikes! scary, but exciting too) to get far enough out... More

We spontaneously stayed at this property and instantly fell in love with it. The boat ride to and from town was fun and adventurous. Randall (front desk) was extremely helpful with assisting us. We needed to arrange some details with Nature Air and our car and Randall was on it ! My husband and I got to chat with one... More

We just returned from a five night stay at Copa De Arbol. This piece of paradise was hard to leave! We have been to Belize and to Costa Rica three times and this was definitely our favourite experience, it exceeded our expectations! The moment we got there our wildlife experience began. Randall, the resort's concierge, brought us over to Cabinas... More

We found everything about this place to be impressive. From the reservations process with Summer handling every minute detail, to the staff, to the facility itself, to the activities. We spent most of our activity time each day scuba diving at Cano Island, but there are an amazing array of other choices you can pick from (their website explains them... More

Cano Island is an amazing, world-class dive and snorkel site. Several weeks ago a group of guests were treated to a rare sighting of a juvenile whale shark 18 feet in length. Keely’s father was visiting at the time and has never really snorkeled before. His very first minute in the water, he was up close with this magnificent creature.... More

Access is via a speed boat from the local Drake Bay 'airport' - well, it isn't an airport, but planes land there! So getting in and out of the place is challenging - a tidal surge on entering or leaving the boat could be a real inconvenience. Pack light, because the bags go through the same thing you do! Once...

The remoteness of the Osa is what first sparked my curiosity to explore this area. As a kid I was very interested in geography and would spend many hours looking at maps searching for wild, roadless areas where my young imagination could run wild. As soon as I was old enough, I began to explore the wild remote places I... More

We love to have families visit. It’s always a thrill to watch kids respond to the wonders of the Osa. It’s nice to hear you took full advantage of the activities we offer and even found time to hang by the pool. Thanks for choosing us. More
