“Great place, great value, great hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Casita Corcovado was a great place to stay - we would definitely go stay there again if we were ever in Drake Bay! Many of the places in Drake are very expensive adn very far removed from any restaurants or shops. Casita Corcovado is located in a great spot, close to everything and the owners are amazing - they will help arrange all your tours, cook you wonderful breakfasts, and show you all around town and tell you about the history of the place. Although it was a shared bathroom, it was kept very clean (only thing is the water pressure could have been better) and the house itself is pretty basic very cute with hamocks in the back and front yard. Jamie and Craig are truly the best hosts you will probably experience in all of Costa Rica and we highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: the front room with the ocean view seems to be larger than the rest

Please stay in touch. We loved meeting you two.

Jamie and Craig were very gracious hosts. The house is well situated between town and the beach. The grounds are well kept and absolutely beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed hanging in the various hammocks situated around the house watching a variety of birds and butterflies (even a morpho butterfly paid a visit). Our room was very clean and comfortable. Jamie and Craig have a wealth of local knowledge and are eager to share with their guests. But they also have an uncanny knack for knowing when to give you space, as I do enjoy my quiet time. It was wonderful to wake up to Jamie's creative and delicious breakfast e each morning. Definitely happy with our decision to stay here!

Jamie and Craig are the most wonderful hosts you could ask for. They should nail a plaque to the house that reads "Leave your worries at the door." (Then again, if you are lucky enough to find yourself spending time in the jungle paradise of Drake Bay and vicinity, what worries could you possibly have?) When we arrived in the afternoon, there were beautiful, cut tropical flowers on our beds...a thoughtful, elegant touch. The very comfortable bedrooms are equipped with A/C for folks who can't handle heat and humidity, but they also have fans for those of us who would rather just sleep with warm soft breezes and the sound of ocean waves. The rest of the house has an airy feel about it..in fact the kitchen/dining area is an open patio that looks out upon fruit trees and lush plants. The location is great also -- only a very short walk from the hamlet's two small markets and restaurants. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious, and my only regret was that we couldn't stay longer at Casita Corcovado. If you like conversing with friendly, interesting hosts who really know the area and their community -- and will soon have you feeling like you've found your own home away from home -- then this is the place for you.

By the time my partner and I left Drake Bay we felt as if we were leaving good friends. Jamie and Craig not only shared thier beautiful home and wonderful cooking with us, but also thier great stories and helpful tips about the area. You won't meat friendlier people in Drake Bay. The air conditioned room was a nice bonus as well!!

This is a lovely place to stay. Jamie and Craig met us at the shore and saw us off when we left, keeping us company and showing us around Drake Bay all the while in between. The home is comfortable and homey, and Jamie and Craig are very knowledgeable about Drake Bay and its people. Highly recommended for those seeking to visit Drake Bay.

What a lovely B&B! I felt home :)
Jamie and Craig are very nice, friendly and they can give you all the helpful tips that you need.
The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the patio is beautiful! You can relax on one of their hammocks. Excellent breakfast.
Highly recommended.

Unfortunately, we couldn't stay at their place as the house was already booked.
But we did all our trip with them which were amazing ! Our Corcovado guide was really nice and friendly, he knows a lot about the park and animals. We weren't stressed at all to do the tour.
For our second trip, we went with Craig on the "mixto" tour. First we did a bit of fishing and catched 2 huge fisch ! then, we went snorkeling, unfortunatley, it wasn't the best day to see fish but you cannot decide this. My mother was afraid to go in deep wather so, Craig went with her and finally she really enjoyed her time ! We ended our trip on a beach, he showed us some local strange fruits. During the 2 trips, food provided by Jamie was really good and in good quantity.

If we have the chance to go back to Corcovado, we'll definitly stay at his place.
