We recently returned from a 10-day trip to Costa Rica, during which we spent half our time in Manuel Antonio and the other half in Drake Bay at Las Caletas. What a phenomenally beautiful location! If you are looking for a peaceful, remote, relaxing place, this is it! The last time we traveled to CR we didn't make it this... More

We have stayed at Las Caletas in the past a few times and it has become our "home" on the Osa Peninsula. We had the pleasure of meeting Yolanda this trip and celebrated her birthday. She departed and David arrived the next day. We spent four nights this trip. We made the trip down to Sirena to see what we... More

We stayed at Las Caletas for 4 nights in one of the tents. I honestly think, listening to our travel mates , that the tents were cooler than the rooms. The shared bathroom was no problem at all. No bugs. Loved the open to the jungle feel. Great food. Tasty afternoon sweets. The boat rides too and from were lovely... More

I've been to Drake Bay before and I had a 5-star experience. On this second visit, things didn't go as well because of badly set expectations on the part of the Las Caletas Lodge owners. I booked my stay well ahead of my arrival and at least a month before my arrival date I requested the activities I was interested... More

My adult daughter and I spent 2 1/2 weeks on our first visit to Costa Rica and our stay at Las Caletas was the highlight. Gorgeous setting, quiet, great food and close to Cano Island and Corcovado National Park. We did the Sirena tour, snorkeling at Cano, and a guided night walk. We stayed in a cabin and were completely... More

I went here with my cousins and we were very happy. We stayed in one of the tent cabins (the bathroom is shared). It's a beautiful setting a bit south of Drake Bay- an hour walk or a quick boat ride. Jolanda was really helpful with reserving our stay and the owner is very nice too. It's a 5 minute... More

Same for the way there by boat from Sierpe they charged 40$ eventhough the boat was running anyways for groceries and bringing workers to the... More

We were fortunate to stay at Las Caletas for four nights last week. We found the perfect place to stay. Jolanda was so helpful in making arrangements and making sure we were picked up at the small airport in Drake Bay. The trip getting there is an adventure itself, we flew into SJO airport and walked two blocks to Sansa... More

I went to Las Caletas with my brother and meet friends there for my birthday. We were all so delighted with the location, basically your own beach, the food was outstanding and the people we met were so interesting and friendly from all over Europe and North America.
