It's hard to describe how welcome you are made to feel at Casa Horizontes - from being met wet-legged off the boat, to a slightly tearful farewell, Pedro, Yami and their family and helpers made us feel very welcome. The lovely Nancy was always on hand with a fruit juice, coffee or meal, and Yami helped us to plan all our trips successfully (we were there for 5 nights). The food was great, every meal is taken outside on the balcony (hand-built by Pedro, like the rest of the house) with amazing views of the garden and Drake Bay beyond. With a little practise, we were able to hear the scarlet macaws coming and get the binoculars and camera ready.
We should also mention some of the practicalities of feeling at home in someone else's home:
Meals are taken at a large table with other guests, where you can swap stories and plans;
Most rooms share one bathroom;
The Romantic room, where we stayed, is accessed by a steep ladder-type staircase, and is at the top of the house, so can get quite hot (there is a ceiling fan). But you do get lots of white-faced Cappuchin monkeys strolling and jumping past the window, about five feet away.
Drake Bay and Corcovado have to be among the best places to visit in Costa Rica, if not the world, and Casa Horizontes is a great place to stay, and certainly the best value.
