My girlfriend and I spent a week at Casita Corcovado back in January and found exactly what looking for. This was our second trip to Costa Rica within the same year, we had loved our stay in the Osa peninsula so much that we just had to go back! Drake bay and the Osa in general in general is truly a nature lover's paradise. Drake however has the added bonus of offering great diving as well.
This was her first time in a B&B and weren't sure if we were going to like being in someone else's home... That feeling changed as soon as we met Jamie and Craig who immediately made us feel welcomed. They are both genuinely nice people who are obviously very happy with their new life in Costa Rica and it doesn't take long for you to feel at home with friends.
The house is perfectly situated right in the middle of everything: good local restaurants, a grocery store, the bar, the beach and most importantly, the jungle trail. This trail follows the coast all the way down to Corcovado National Park taking you past countless beautiful and completely deserted beaches with almost guaranteed sightings of white faced (capuccin) and spider monkeys along the way. It is also possible to see scarlet macaws, parrots and a bunch of other birds, insects and reptiles right near the house.
Jamie and Craig are really involved within the community and you are bound to meet locals who constantly pop by the house. They also know exactly who to call for any activity, adventure or any other needs that you might have including diving. Cano island offers great diving, not so much for their reef but definitely for the fish chances to see big pelagics and reef sharks. On the one day of diving I saw four or five white tip reef sharks, a huge nurse shark and that gigantic manta ray! A great experience...
All and all we had a wonderful time and will surely be back to visit Jamie and Craig in the near future.
