Hotel Casa Horizontes Corcovado
Ranked #4 of 22 Drake Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2011

We are from Hasselt, Belgium and during 6 days (april 2011) we felt very welcome in casa horizontes. Jami and Pedro really did everything to make sure that our stay was as pleasant as possible.
The B&B is the best spot of drake bay: in the middle of the bay, on a hill with ocean view and a garden where we saw scarlet macaws, tucan, huge green lizard etc.
The rooms are simple, but clean, and the price very reasonable (we paid 55 USD/room)

I stayed with Yami and Pedro for over a week and enjoyed every moment of it. If you visit Costa Rica, don't miss the Osa Peninsula and Drake's Bay and while you are there stay at this wonderful bed and breakfast. Everything the other reviewers have said is correct. It is true that there is a steep climb, but you are rewarded with a great view and a peaceful environment. At the top of the hill there is no loud road traffic or dust clouds. I'm in my early 70's and climbed up many times in a day without any difficulty. This is one place I will certainly return to.

Its probably all been said, but some of the pro's:
beautiful looking
porch with ocean viev
great meals
top room with ocean view
beautiful garden with wildlife like toucans, monkeys, (humming)birds.
nice helpful people
great guide, sister of the 'guest mother', just ask for tours to Corcovado amongst other things

not so great things
pretty steep climb, doable but not when you can (hardly) walk
no pcs with internet, i think no wi fi

Staying with Yami and Pedro was just fantastic! The family is wonderful and very welcoming, the location is excellent and the rooms are very good value for money in drake bay.
Yami's sister Elia is an excellent nature guide in the area and we would highly recommend her.

My wife and I had the privilege to be hosted at Casa Horizontes, by Yami and Pedro, while we adventured in the Drake Bay area with Galiano Kayaks (itself rating a top review for an adventure experience). It is actually very hard to write a review of Casa Horizontes without seeming to exaggerate. This is truly a gem. The rooms were comfortable, airy and bright. We stayed in an upstairs loft with windows on three sides, and were lulled to sleep by the sound of surf and jungle noises. The meals were excellent, and were served on a front veranda overlooking Yami’s garden, and Drake Bay itself. Fresh tropical fruits, homemade breads, and natural fruit juices were part of every meal. Because we were with Galiano Kayaks, we also ate lunches and dinners there as well, and were treated to wonderful food and service at every meal. Food preparation was to the highest standards. The house, kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms were impeccably clean. The home itself is stunning. It is constructed of local hardwoods, and features Pedro’s very beautiful carving and inlay work. The setting is stunning as well, and the garden and surrounding forest were visited by an incredible variety of birds and wildlife. Yami and Pedro, and family and staff were wonderful and warm, and made our stay memorable – in fact the best stay we have had anywhere in our travels.
Drake Bay and the Northern Osa Peninsula are not a casual tourist destination. Getting there takes planning but that is also part of the adventure. Roads are rough. Air service is by Twin Otter aircraft from San Jose to a small airport near Drake Bay. Casa Horizontes is on a bluff overlooking the bay, and is a steep, but short, walk from the road. After a couple of walks down to swim in the bay or explore the area, the hill seems much shorter and less steep and the top of the hill was home. It would be a shame to miss this Bed and Breakfast because it is a little bit out of the main part of town.

Casa Horizontes has a privileged view of Drake Bay. Off the deck we viewed at very close range an incredible array of wildlife including capuchin monkeys and toucans! The hosts, Yami and Pedro, are exceptional. Yami is an excellent cook; I would compare her dishes with anything on offer at a high-end restaurant - - the menu was varied and the juice fresh squeezed! I was pleased to stay a little off the beaten path (not in the tourist enclave in the tiny town up the road) but in a serene spot within a close distance of the beach. Staying at Casa Horizontes was an incredible experience I'll enjoy remembering throughout the winter months and beyond!

Yami and Pedro provide a very high quality B&B stay in the Osa. Price is very reasonable; each meal is delicious and different, including some Caribbean recipes. Yami's rum cake was amazing. Yami's sister, Ellya, is an excellent guide to the Sirena ranger station. We stayed overnight at Sirena and saw more animals and birds than imaginable - including the red eyes of crocodiles at 4:30 a.m. They book up quickly - so plan ahead!
