Hi there! My friend Laura and I are hoping to come over to the Osa and do some river floating, tour Corcovado National Park, and perhaps do some snorkeling. We are staying in Playa Zancudo (and have easy access to Gulfito and Porta Jimenez via boat) until about the 7th of January. We'd like to come for about 3 days somewhere in between now and then, preferably not being gone over New Years. Do you have any openings for your hotel (and what is the rate?) within this time frame (between the 26th and 31st) or (2nd through 6th/7th)? I understand this would be a busy time of year. If you are available during this time do you know what the best way to get to drake bay is? I've heard there may be some sort of group taxi from Jimenez? Do you know what the price on that is? Thank you for your time and assistance!!
