Besides a wonderful location, very clean and comfortable rooms and good breakfasts this place is all about hosts.
There are only one Jamie and Craig in the world and we were lucky enough to find them. They are extremely nice, most considerate and service minded hosts I've met. We've spent a whole week with them and still can't understand where all the time disappeared.
The atmosphere in the house is very relaxed at the same time as everything gets done nearly before you think of it. The tours you want to take get arranged by themselves no matter which guide or agency you choose, the taxies order themselves, the breakfast gets ready just when you wish it would be there and your kid gets to feel special being shown the iguanas, secret gardens, exotic plants or fruits, miraculously getting his favorite juice in the morning or catching a wahoo "all by himself".
The couple knows just about everything and everyone in the village and they share their knowledge with you willingly. If you do choose to stay there, ask all the questions you need and listen to their advice no matter if comes to restaurants, tours or clothes you need to wear. It worked really well for us.
Jamie and Craig love what they do and the country they live in, which is really easy to observe in just about every moove they do. It did feel like we were visiting relatives or friends, who happen to live on another continent. Very safe and good feeling, especially if you are travelling alone with a kid.
NB: If you are concerned about your privacy, it's no problem at all. These hosts have a tendency to appear and disappear according to your unspoken wishes and other guests are just a nice company in the evenings if you wish for it. :)
Location and accomodations were all perfect for us, just like other reviews describe it.
I recommend you to choose Casita Corcovado from the bottom of my heart! :)
The bug tour, fishing/ whales with Craig and very early morning Corcovado are the must see tours in Drake Bay in our opinion. Canopy tour is also a lot of fun if you have more time.
