This was our 3rd visit to Costa Rica ( we love it here!) and have stayed in other similar 'eco-resorts'. Copa de Arbol did not disappoint and the 4 days here was the perfect relaxation setting for the last 4 days of our holiday. From our pick up in Seirpe we were treated like

The Grounds
What Wildlife might we see nearby - birds, butterflies, monkeys?
I went on the tour to la sirena ranger station in Corcovado national park where I saw A tapir (sleeping) a group of wild boars all four species of monkeys ( white face, howler, spider, and squirrel monkeys).A large group of coati, an ant eater. I am not a birder by any means but the bird life is unbelievable with scarlet macaws and tucans of two species toping the list. I also saw many dolphins on the boat ride to and from the park and a few caiman in the sirena river.

Is it a good place for a single female
If you are wondering if it's safe, yes, it is very safe. You will have the opportunity to meet people and the excursions can be with a group (Cano Island snorkeling, the mangrove tour, or Corcovado hiking). We've been to similar places and there is usually a single traveler who seems to be getting along fine.

The resort will help you with travel arrangements. I flew into SJO on Delta. Then connected on Sansa Air to Drake Bay. It is a short flight, approximately 45 minutes. The resort will also arrange for a cab to pick you up at Drake Bay and take you to the pick up spot on the beach for the boat from the resort.

Can I get there from the Liberia airport?
From Liberia you would fly to San Jose and then catch a flight to Drake Bay airstrip. All flights to Drake depart from San Jose.

"Great view from Sable!"
"Try out the paddle boards!"
"Best cabin is number 9 but all are great."
"There are fewer than 10 units. I imagine they are all wonderful. Ask which accommodation will serve your needs best."
"You cannot go wrong in whatever room you choose, but a ocean-facing suite gives the best view by far"
