Copa De Arbol is a very special place. From the service, to the beautiful grounds, to the food, and to the rooms, this place has it all. Luxury mixed with wildlife. The service was absolutely amazing. Everyone is so friendly and they really are trying to get to know you and get to know what you like, without being instrusive.... More

Thanks for writing this informative review. The positive feedback is very nice and we really appreciate you bringing up a great point, choosing the right cabin. The way our property is laid out leaves some cabins closer to the water, while others have better jungle views. Our website has detailed videos showing each room inside and out including the view....

We stayed at Copa de Arbol at the end of March 2014 and had a fantastic time at this resort. Be prepared to see some incredible wild life. As soon as we were at the resort's beach on the boat transfer, we saw a pod of dolphins that came right up by our boat! The staff is friendly, helpful and... More

I have to say we all had quite a good time reading this review. It was nice to have someone acknowledge “sand on the beach” and “water droplets on the speedboat” as part of the experience. Beware the crumgrudgeons…words to live by. LOL! Thanks for the kind words and come back soon!!! More

This was our third trip to Central America, but our first to this part of Costa Rica. The adventure begins with the puddle jumper flight to the Drake Bay area and then a boat ride down the Sierpe River and along the Pacific coast to reach this unspoiled destination. The staff were welcoming, attentive and knowledgeable. We learned soon enough... More

My partner and I just returned from this one of a kind vacation in the rainforest. From the moment we landed it became clear this was the right place for us. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and we have traveled all over and wanted something different than the norm. No shoes, no phone, TV, or roads. All you could... More

My wife Linda and I recently returned from four days at Copa de Arbol. The scenery was breathtaking, the ocean was warm, the wildlife was spectacular, and the accommodations were very comfortable with great views. Best of all the staff, especially Randall was outstanding and took care of our every need. The food was absolutely fantastic with a wonderful wait... More

It's been two weeks since we returned home from Costa Rica for the second year in a row. Our first visit left us wanting to see more of this amazing country and this year we wanted to include the Osa Pennisula. Our stay at the Copa de Arbol ended our trip this year reminding us that there are few places... More

This review touches on something that I highly recommend, arriving via the Sierpe River. Nowadays there are several options for accessing Drake Bay. When we first came to this area over twenty years ago, the only access was the hour & 15-minute boat ride down the Sierpe River out into the Pacific and on to Drake Bay. To me, it... More

There are many aspects of our stay here that we enjoyed: i.e. the welcome, the experience in the restaurant. Staff generally really seemed to care and the location was amazing. However, there are some things that spoilt the experience for us: a resort of this price and calibre should have a jetty, it was difficult at times to get on... More

Seeing that you stayed with us almost a year ago, we are saddened that you still carry negative memories of your stay here at Copa. Worse yet, all of your complaints could have been avoided. First I would highly recommend any potential guests to read the “Is Copa Right For You” page on our website. You will find info that... More

If you would like to escape to a place that is totally off the beaten path and lets you enjoy everything there is of the rainforest and ocean, then this would be a great place to come. You arrive by boat to a beautiful luxurious resort that only has 11 cabinas on premise. They are well appointed, spotlessly clean, air... More

As the title of your review states, this part of Drake Bay known as ”Las Caletas,” which translates to the small coves, is a very private part of the Drake Bay area. There are only 6 small lodges including us between the Aguijitas River and Punta Marenco, which covers about 2 miles of coast. This leaves most beaches free of... More

This is a gorgeous, off the grid place to totally unplug. The setting, food, service, pool, casitas are truly wonderful. The food was excellent and despite having, officially, a limited number of choices for lunch and dinner, they were always able to come up with other options if one of my children had a specific request. There are plenty of... More

One of my favorite things about the rainforest is the rain. I love to feel the power of raw nature. Our guests come from all over the world and from all walks of life, but no matter who you are or where you’ve come from when there’s a true thunder and lighting storm hitting Osa-style, you can’t help but feel...
