Drake Bay, Osa Peninsula, Province of Puntarenas
Private and secure casita in the town of Aguijitas, Drake Bay. Now we offer A/C in the bedroom. Just 5 minutes to the beach, shops, cafes, and pubs. Great location to explore Corcovado National Park, Rio Sierpe-Terraba Wetlands, Cano Island. Endless hiking options. The Mango Street Casita is in a gated garden with fruit trees and tropical ornamental plants all around. This is a birders delight. Monkeys and sloth are see easily from the porch of the casita. This remote location can be expensive that is why this option would be best for those interested in being independent and economical by some of their own cooking. In your own house you can enjoy more of nature at your own pace.

The Mango Street Casita is a perfect little gem for two or three people. As someone who knows Costa Rica well and has been many times in Drake Bay, I often stay here. The accommodations are spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The lovely property (with gardens lovingly cared for by Mario) is technically located "in town", but it's set off...

This is a tropical paradise surrounded by plants and trees well maintained by the owners. The village is not overdeveloped which lends to it charm. The accommodation are full service (full cooking kitchen, fans, internet access) which is amazing since Drake just recently had electricity installed. I noticed a reviewer complained about the bugs and I was amused. This is...

Mu husband and I arrived for what we thought would be the perfect end to our 2 week tour of Coata Rica, 4 nights in Drake Bay with all the wildlife and tours to see even more wildlife. One thing that I didn't realize from the posting (my fault) was that the bathroom (toilet, sink, shower) were literally all outside....
