Location: Private, quiet, serene...special care was taken in design and development of the special place to preserve the natural beauty and habitat of the area. The grounds are immaculate in grooming and cleanliness while preserving nature. Staff:... More

It's been almost a year since we traveled to Costa Rica and I would just like to acknowledge the unbelievable time my family had at CDA. The love and dedication and commitment of the staff and management rang loud and clear. They get it !!! Private, Clean, Unique, and Wonderfully Dedicated. We were in Costa Rica for two weeks and...

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

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...

My daughter and I stayed at Copa de Arbol for 3 nights and 4 days. The staff did everything to make sure our visit was amazing. From the moment we arrived and Randall met us at the boat to the moment we left. We felt like special guests. The food was great and they really accommodated all of my dietary... More

I can't say enough about our vacation to Costa Rica and our stay at Copa de Arbol. It was truly beautiful. The staff was great, very polite, attentive, and eager to please. The grounds were clean and well maintained. We were so pleased with the food. Considering where they are and only having boat access, there creativity was superb. Everything... More

We scheduled a quick two night stay for something different. From the moment we arrived to meet our boat to the resort we were impressed...we were met by staff member Luis who took us for a walk to see some wildlife as we waited for our boat, then made a point to take a quick side trip via boat to...

We only got to stay 2 nights but was truly the most amazing nights. The staff was over the top with everything from arrival to departure. Food and drinks were wonderful. Snorkeling at Cano Island was unbelievable. Summer did a great job helping set the trip up. Highly recommended the boat trip instead of plane.

Copa de Arbol exceeded all expectations, and we can't wait to return! The setting is absolutely beautiful. As you arrive by boat, you see a lovely beach with the rainforest as a backdrop, and tucked in the rainforest are beautiful teak, open-air buildings. Wear sandals or water shoes as your feet will get wet on arrival. We were welcomed with... More
