We booked 4 nights here for a family vacation and loved it. From pick up at the Drake Bay airport there is a short car ride and river crossing to the boat that ferries you to Copa de Arbol resort. On the boat ride over the escorts took a short detour into an inlet to show us some lovely views and wildlife (great photo ops) before continuing along the coastline to the beach landing at the resort. My husband walks with canes but there was plenty of help on hand to help him off the boat. We loved the setting and the accommodations are lovely and very comfortable. There are hammocks on the lower level and a porch with seating for enjoying the views from your upstairs rooms. Spacious and comfy. The food was very good and plentiful, enough to keep you energized during the tours and activities. We rounded out our arrival day with a trip to San Josecito beach for lunch and snorkeling. Some of our members did the Corcovado hike with naturalist guide,José, who was very knowledgeable (they saw tapir !). The kids raved about the Caño Island snorkel trip and on the boat ride over they had close encounters with dolphins and humpback whales (whale season is Aug-Nov. We were there at the very beginning of August). The staff is personable and very attentive. We enjoyed our stay immensely, which unfortunately was cut short for two of us because my husband dislocated his artificial hip (not an accident, just happened spontaneously) and had to be evacuated to a hospital in San José. Mike and his crew organized a stretcher and group of people to carry him to the boat for the trip to the waiting ambulance in Sierpe which the resort had arranged. Our adult son and niece stayed behind and enjoyed the rest of the tours and activities. We all agree, we can't wait to go back. The setting is stunning, and there is so much to do for nature lovers. We even enjoyed the light show that the lightening bugs put on one evening. So relaxing! We all agreed, we can hardly wait to go back. Thanks Mike, Orlando, and the rest of the team for showing us such a good time and taking such good care of us. We'll be back!
