“Great place for a great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2010

We stayed at Vista Drake for 2 nights in February. Although there is one room to stay in, the majority of the people stay in tents perched on a hill over the bay. The view from the campsite is AMAZING! We had our own tent, and for $5 a night we could not have asked for a better place. The tents looked very clean, had electricity and beds. There is a shared bathroom that is also very clean and although the showers have cold water, it was the most refreshing part of the day (due to the heat and humidity). It is close to the center of town, so not much of a walk from where the boat drops you off. Emilio (the owner) and his family were fabulous hosts. He speaks English and can offer you a lot of information about the area. We also had breakfast there one morning and it was delicious. (My boyfriend has food allergies and they were amazingly accommodating). There is also free internet and as much purified water as you want. Overall, we loved staying here and would highly recommend it to anyone.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2009

We (my partner and I) LOVED staying at Vista Drake. We looked at several places in town to stay, as we arrived without reservations for accomodations. We are so glad that we found Vista Drake. An awesome camping/tenting experience. We stayed for 5 nights. The accomodations were very comfortable, the facilites clean and the view great. Our host Emilio, a local resident and his family , were very welcoming. He speaks english, which for us was nice as my spanish is a combination of spanglish, and hand gestures. He is very passionate and knowlegeable about the osa peninsula, drake bay and the corcovado park. he is a wonderful hiking guide. we enjoyed the typical breaksfast as well. there is a walk up the hill to the tents however it really is worth it.
