Friends said in advance that this was the highspot of their visit to Costa Rica, so naturally we were curious as we drove out to Bahia Drake along the interminable dirt road with its river crossings - no problem with 4x4 in the dry season, but we'd advise you to take a river boat from Sierpe or a plane, much more fun! Once at the finca we gradually realised what a fabulous place this was, with a series of beatifully designed cabins strung out in a clearing along the rolling hillside surrounded by forest, beatifully equipped, an architectonic delight. The reception/dining area towers above it all, with a practical viewing platform for birdlovers. Staff run a laid-back incredibly helpful service, organising whatever activity you like and full of helpful advice. I'm somewhat handicapped, so they organised special forest walks for me, away from the main drag. Night bug walk and mangrove tour highly recommended, as are the incredible beach walks... Relaxing group suppers, exchanging plans and experiences, getting lots of good ideas for the next stage of our trip. Fantastico! Thank you so much Miguel and saff!
