“Absolutely amazing stay! wish we could have stayed longer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at Rio Drake Lodge for 3 days in February and it was an amazing experience. It exceeded our expectations and we loved everything about this place - i really cannot say enough. We lucked-out and were the only 2 people staying there at the time. We immediately loved the rustic and remoteness of it. Edu and Sabrina are so lovely and such generous and helpful hosts - we fell in love with the place. Sabrina's cooking is ridiculously good... the monkeys accross the air strip are wicked to see first thing in the morning... taking the canoe for a ride along a river...swimming and fishing everyday...and then candle-lit dinners and star-gazing at night top it off. Corcovado National Park was definitely worth the day-trip as well. It was a major(and unexpected) high-light of our 3 month trip through Central America. I'd love to go back some day - we think about our stay there often...such an experience, cannot say enough - great job Edu & Sabrina;)

Room Tip: We had our own mosquito net - not sure if they have them? (may not be neccessary though;)

When we arrived at Rio Drake Lodge, we had no clue what we were about to discover : a rustic and lovely hotel located at the end of an airstrip, right next to the Pacific Ocean.

At Rio Drake Lodge, it's you, the nature and the animals.
It's a terrific experience in which you get to live the real and wild Costa Rica.
Plus, this place is where you can see the best sunsets of the country.

Our hosts, Edu and Sabrina, were very kind and helpful during our 5 night stay. We went snorkeling in a river off the beaten path and hiked in the jungle. We also visited the must-see Corcovado National Park and snorkeled in the clear waters of the Cano Island.

On top of this, Sabrina is a very good cook. Indeed, every meal we had was fresh and delicious. We even ate the fish we caught with Edu on the same day...!

Needless to say, we left Rio Drake Lodge half heartbroken.

NB. This lodge is a remote place. So, if you expect to have a nightclub or a restaurant next door, this is not a good place to stay for you.
