We loved everything about Las Caletas -- It is about an hour by boat from Sierpe. We stayed in the honeymoon suite with it's own deck, hammock, table and chairs, bathroom, etc. (the one thing to note is there is a ceiling fan, but the window ventilation isn't exceptional, so might be hot later in the year...) The dining area... More

Without any luxury pretentions, Las Caletas Lodge is a great place to stay if you decided to be Robin Crusoë for a few days. If you need comfort, hate bugs and not to change your way of life, be here for the beauty of nature and respect of ecology, book anywhere else and avoid Osa. This lodge has a welcoming... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable, although some are better than others. Room 4 is very nice. Room 2 is large and designed for 4-5 people. Both have nice views. Room 5 is private, but no view. The food is typical Costa Rican, with some nice meat, chicken and fish for dinners. Not as well set up for vegetarians but... More

We recently returned from a 10-day trip to Costa Rica, during which we spent half our time in Manuel Antonio and the other half in Drake Bay at Las Caletas. What a phenomenally beautiful location!

We stayed at Las Caletas for 4 nights in one of the tents. I honestly think, listening to our travel mates , that the tents were cooler than the rooms. The shared bathroom was no problem at all. No bugs. Loved the open to the jungle feel. Great food. Tasty afternoon sweets. The boat rides too and from were lovely... More

I've been to Drake Bay before and I had a 5-star experience. On this second visit, things didn't go as well because of badly set expectations on the part of the Las Caletas Lodge owners.

Gorgeous setting, quiet, great food and close to Cano Island and Corcovado National Park. We did the Sirena tour, snorkeling at Cano, and a guided night walk. We stayed in a cabin and were completely... More
