Well this review is better late than never as we had a week stay here in winter 2014. If you've got a bit of adventure in your blood but like the finer things, this could be the right place for you. We traveled as two couples and thoroughly enjoyed unplugging from our busy lives. No TVs, no radios -- no... More

We spent 5 nights at Copa and found it to be luxurious, beautiful, exhilarating, and enormously friendly. The setting is exquisite, with a lovely beach and cottages spread within flowering jungle gardens. Every meal in the lovely dining room (facing the ocean) exceeded our expectations: after all, who would expect sophisticated entrees and even fresh sushi in a remote outpost.... More

My group of five spent five nights at Copa de Arbol the first week in February. This is a little piece of Paradise on the Osa Peninsula and I am so happy I found it. I was searching for a small place away from the crowds, non-touristy, on the beach with a lovely view of the sunset, and had to... More

Three nights was just not enough in this beautiful, natural setting. From the beach you can hardly tell the resort exists, it is so in harmony with the environment. Beautiful birds, monkeys and other wildlife abound in and around the pristine grounds and the large nature reserve surrounding it. The staff become good friends quickly and learned our likes (black... More

To say this location is off the beaten path would be an understatement. In fact, it's only accessible via water. Not that this was a problem. When we booked our five night stay, we worked out travel arrangements via the extremely helpful hotel contact, including a boat ride from Sierpe after we landed. The location is unbelievable tucked into a... More

Copa de Arbol is, quite simply, a dream come true. In one of the most beautiful and isolated parts of Costa Rica, Mike (the owner) and his team have managed to create a true tropical paradise, where service comes first and nothing is too much trouble. My husband and I spent an idyllic four nights at the hotel in late... More

One of my favorite things about living here and running the hotel is the chance to connect with so many people from all over the world. It’s like getting to see my surroundings from many different and new perspectives as many guests notice and appreciate different things. It was great to meet you both. Keely & I really enjoyed learning... More

We stayed for three nights and were bowled over by the resort, from the luxurious cabin to the atmospheric restaurant; the sandy, almost private, cove just yards away; the humming birds in the garden; the white-faced monkeys in the trees; the beautiful views across the bay; the friendly and helpful staff; the good food; the superb guides who took us...

Well it sounds like you had a great time and got the full Copa experience. Caño Island is my favorite place to dive/ snorkel because you never know what you might see. I have seen everything from the tiniest colorful reef fish to giant manta rays, turtles, sharks and even humpback whales close enough to feel the displacement of water... More

My family of 4 (children 13 and 15 yrs) stayed a delightful 5 nights at Copa in January and had an unforgettable adventure holiday. Having travelled to Galapagos, Madagascar and Amazon we weren't sure whether our adventure expectations would be met. Whilst not as raw, wild and confronting as some of those places, all but one of the activities at... More

Thanks for posting this informative review. We receive a lot of well-traveled guests who have visited the planet’s top wildlife destinations. I find that many guests are pleasantly surprised to discover that the Osa Peninsula provides a true wilderness experience in a part of the world that has been largely altered or destroyed to some degree. Central America is a... More

We stayed 7 nights in this jungle paradise. Everything is so well done at this resort from the wonderful air conditioned cabins to the excellent food ( as much as you want and whatever you want ) to the helpful and friendly staff. We snorkeled and were helped by the attentive staff, we took a jungle walk at night and... More

For couples, cabin 9 is my favorite of our 10 cabins. It along with cabins 1, 10,and 11 are the closest to the beach. Cabin 9, or Balsa as we named it, is built on tall posts to give it more of a tree house feel. The view of the ocean from the bed combined with the sounds of the... More

This is truly paradise on earth! Situated on a beach with the jungle just behind: the Pacific Ocean AND monkeys on site! No TV, no music -- just the sounds of waves crashing, monkeys howling, and thousands of birds singing.
