Budget Accomodation


My girlfriend and I are looking to go to Osa towards the end of November this year.

It is part of a long haul Latin American trip so we are trying to save as much money as possible. The Osa peninsula is something we have considered essential because a main amibition is to see as much wildlife as possible. We are going to let the purse strings go a bit. But not too much.

What are the best value lodgings in the area (Drake bay most probably). Ideally we would like as much included in the per night price as possible (snorkells surfboards canoes etc) to keep us occupied so tours are not a necessity.

Something around $60 all inclusive is really our budget. And that is pushing it a bit.

Any help would be greatly received.



ps we will be getting there by bus from San Jose after spending time at Montana Linda spanish school is Orosi.

All-inclusive on the low end figure about $50/pp in Drake at a place like Poor Man's Paradise. Marenco Lodge is a nice rustic place, but meals are extra. There are a few budget cabina-type places in Agujitas. The budget options are more extensive on the Puerto Jimenez side of the Osa Peninsula, as is your ability to get around...

Getting to Drake from San Jose will require a bus to Palmar Norte, then a taxi to the Sierpe docks and a boat ride down. Buses do go all the way to Puerto Jimenez from San Jose (8-9 hours).
