Good place to stay. Good price. Choose the bungalow where in your private hammock and on your private terrace you can admire nature, ocean and if you are lucky arrow flights. Breakfast is correct with eggs, fruits, toasts and sometimes pancakes. The sympathic owner welcomes you at the pier, explains you a lot of things and organize tours to Corcovado... More

Emilio was an amazing host along with his mother who was a great breakfast chef! We stayed here the first 3 nights on Oso Penninsula. Emilio put us up in much nicer accomodations than we originally booked due to our party growing in size by one, but at no additional cost! Really a treat! Emilio also arranged for a great... More

We visited Vista Drake lodge in December 2014. The location is very convenient. It is close to the village restaurants and stores. It is not in the middle of wilderness like some all the lodges. Maybe location in the jungle is more romantic and more close to nature. But this one was very convenient. Our Bungalow had a great view.... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in March and wished we had booked for longer. We arrived during a storm on the boat from Sierpe and got soaked but it didn't matter as Emilio and his family were there with towels to dry us and drinks to refresh us before we had even checked in. We stayed in 'Grandma's Bungalow',... More

Emilio and his family were wonderful. I made reservations in 5 months prior thru booking.com; I did email Emilio confirming my reservations then again a few weeks before leaving. Our Cabin was very clean with fresh towels and linens every day. Each morning we were served fresh fruit for breakfast as well as pancakes one day and eggs another. We... More

We stayed three nights. Emilio (owner) took good care of us, from advising on where to go, transportation and restaurants. Fun and friendly. The cabin is basic but view is what you pay for and it does come with hearty breakfast! They clean the cabin every day. Home made steps a bit treacherous (steep) but with flash light and hand...
