We stayed at Las Caletas for three nights in late August 2013 (I would recommend to stay at least 3 nights - possibly much longer because there is so much to see and do).
It is a stunning place, set on a little hill but only 2 minutes walking down the property to the beach. We stayed in one of the cottages which were very neat, clean and had comfortable beds. The bathrooms offered shampoo, shower gel and conditioner.
From the lodge you can view the entire bay - it is simply breathtaking. Around the property you will be able to see lots of different animals from monkeys to parrots and of course watching whales passing by Drake Bay. Likewise there will be plenty of insects: You are in Costa Rica and if you are expecting to see Tapirs and Sloths then do not be suprised if there are insects too. I do not understand the point of other reviews complaining about bugs.
Included in the price were three meals as well as coffee, cake and cookies throughout the day. The meals were absolutely delicious and we never ever left hungry.
We loved every minute of our stay and the entire lodge had a very warm and welcoming feel to it. The owner David, guide Jose as well as the rest of the team were super!! Thanks so much for the amazing time we had!
