At Copa de Arbol you've got the ocean, the rain forrest, the birds, the animals, the culture, fine dining, excellent service and privacy all in one spot.
This is our 6 the year traveling in Costa Rica. It is a wonderful country and this is our new favorite spot.
The only way to get there is by boat so part of the adventure is just getting there. When we arrived to this beautiful lodge we were warmly greeted and offered fresh towels and coconut waters. It was lunch time so while our luggage was taken to our cabin we had our first experience in the restaurant. Orlando the chef came out and explained the lunch selections. We could tell right off the bat that we were going to love eating here. Orlando is an amazing chef who creates 5 star meals but also a genuinely nice guy who goes above and beyond to make you happy. Henry the bartender was also a lot of fun and the bar is well stocked with top shelf liquors.
We loved the jacuzzi and pools. We thought they were awesome. Not oversized but comfortable and beautiful and immaculate. A great place to hang out and read a book or watch the monkeys playing in the trees.
One day we hiked south for about an hour to Rio Claro, a river that flows into the ocean. There is a beautiful lagoon that you can swim in. Very refreshing. The hike itself was beautiful and we stopped at one of the many beaches along the way and ate a lunch that Orlando packed for us. Great day. The next day we hiked the opposite direction about 45 minutes to a little town of Drake. Very colorful town. We enjoyed a fruit smoothie at a local soda and headed back.
After hiking we enjoyed massages on the bottom deck of our cabin. A great massage with the sound of the ocean and other nature sounds in the background.....not from a CD player. Awesome.
We also went on a sunset cruise that we thoroughly enjoyed. The sunset was absolutely stunning.
Kudos to Mike and Jay for creating such a dream place. We will definitely be back and will stay more than 3 nights.
