First off, I think it's helpful to note that Casa Horizontes does imply a somewhat challenging 200m hike from the base of Drake Bay (challenging especially in the rain), but it is WELL worth it! Set on a hillside with views of the bay, fresh mangoes (in season) and lemons from the garden, beautiful wood detail that they take great pains to maintain in excellent condition, hot water in the showers, spacious rooms... it is clear that this place is very much their pride and joy. Although the house itself is wonderful, it is Yami and Pedro's hospitality that really sets this place apart. Just a few examples of how they went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and pleasant: my group and I (7 of us total) ended up renting out the entire place, including the kitchen, and they provided us with everything we needed (pots, pans, coffee filters, you name it). Although we were cooking for ourselves and not receiving meals, they still welcomed us with fresh fruits and juice when we first arrived and when we returned from our trek to Corcovado national park. Made the beds everyday. When they saw that we did not have rain boots for Corcovado, they brought out a big sack of extra boots for us to borrow during our two days in the park (by the way, in rainy season, these made a HUGE difference in the quality of the experience - hiking boots alone are insufficient unless you want to be soaking wet the whole time). By they way, Pedro and Yami also recommended Elia, Yami's sister, as a guide for the park, and I cannot recommend her more, whether or not you manage to stay at Casa Horizontes. Elia is amazing, so talented and good-sprited, she made our trip unforgettable. All in all, this was the perfect visit to Drake Bay!
