To say that Aguila de Osa is everything you could want in a Costa Rican vacation is an understatement. On the short taxi ride from the Drake Bay air strip, my dad and I were taken to a beach and then traveled to the resort in one of their many private boats. Upon arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff, a cocktail, and a quick run down of what our week would be like. Our bags were waiting for us in our villa along with two red macaws feeding on an almond tree just outside.
The week was fantastic. The staff is superior and we never had to wait on anything. Every night your excursions are laid out for you and the next morning you are briefed and promptly on your way to diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing, zip lining, whatever you feel like. Every excursion is top notch, and the guides make you feel comfortable with whatever you're doing that day.
Service at Aguila de Osa is some of the best I have ever experienced in a hotel stay. Everyone is very friendly, and will take the time to answer any question you might have. Every meal was fresh and promptly prepared. My favorite part was in the early evening when we were prepared with fresh appetizers, including guacamole and ceviche, and sipped on cocktails with other guests and discussed our day. The close knit environment provides you with an extended family for your stay, and it's fun to hear all of the stories from everyone's excursions.
So, if you're thinking about a trip to Drake Bay in Costa Rica, this is the place to stay. If you get a chance, track down the owner, Brad, and get him to tell you his story of building Aguila. It's definitely one you'll want to soak in.
