We absolutely fell in love with Drake Bay, Corcovado. I have been travelling to Costa Rica for many years and this was the most incredible place that i have ever seen. Miguel helped us with our accommodations and arranged our tours for our stay at Drake Bay. The cabin was the most beautiful cabin i had ever stayed in, the shower overlooks the jungle, the hammock and bed comfy and overall it was super relaxing. The reason for the sleep quality score being rate 3 is that i did not sleep a wink (although my husband slept like a log) the hotel went through torrential rains that were super loud and it was super hot at night especially sleeping under the mosquito net. I felt as though Miguel acted more like a counselor at a kid's camp trying to arrange all the excursions for us, but was not very informative about what the tour was about and how we were getting there. I felt that Drake Bay was exceptionally expensive for it's food and tours, because it's so remote from any city they pretty much charge you the most expensive prices for any little thing you might need while you are at Drake Bay.
We took a tour to Sirena at Corcovado park and one day we went snorkeling and it was absolutely amazing, swimming next to turtles and sharks and seeing endangered animals through each tour, made me feel so humble and awed at the beauty that Corcovado holds. We also went on an night tour that was amazing, Tracy Stice is a researcher that has lived in Drake Bay for 15 years and after listening to her for 2 hours i was amazed at her knowledge of the animals in the area and how she found them in the dark was even more impressive. Heads up..FInca Maresia is lovely but very far away from the town, each cab ride will cost you $10, i saw some other tourist paying $20 for each way (ridiculous), so be prepared for this. Overall we will be back for sure, but i think next time a little more prepared in what awaits us.
