Lovely setting, well taken care of. Nice food. Very pleasant.
What I didn't like was the fact that we disembarked from the boat at Drake Village, and only because I asked on the beach where the Tent Camp was was I informed that we had to get back on the boat to get to the Tent Camp. That information should be made available before disembarking with all your baggage.

Outstanding wifi.. some of the best I’ve experienced
Entry by boat and completely isolated
Lockers provided with key.Tent closes securely so feel protected from bugs
Fan and sheet only keep sufficiently manageable temp. glorified camping. Expect to be roughing it to a degree. Headlamp is a must. Fresh drinking water always available in camp as well as coffee and tea.
Dinner eaten with other guests so very interactive. This turned into a huge positive and made for an amazing experience.
The path to Drake Bay village And rio claro and playa San josecito passes right through the village. One hour walk to the village and 1-2 hours to the other places. Arrangment for snorkel tour which was outstanding and worth it and the Corcovado national park tour. We hiked Down to rio claro along a clear trail along the ocean
More places to hang stuff to dry at tent? Everything felt damp b/c it is so close to the ocean. Nothing dries well. Very humid
Must eat dinner at camp as isolated from town. Not a good idea to travel footpaths at night
A short journey to the toilets at night. spiders, lizards, toads on the paths at night etc. But like most bugs etc, they don’t want to interact with You either. surprised how tolerant I quickly became. Minimal mosquitos and nocium bites.
would be nice to see a little more site cleanup, more fresh vegetables/ variety with dinner....( everything must be brought in by boat so there are limitations)
Kayaks have holes and are under repair

What a cool experience, Drake Bay is a stunning and untouched part of Costa Rica. Only accessible by boat this Tent Camp is an oasis from the busier tourist regions. The boat trip in is an experience by itself. Don’t miss the easy hike on the coastal trail that runs through the camp. The beaches and views are stunning. The Tent Camp staff are friendly and look after all the details for scheduling excursions and activities. The meals are great and provide a relaxed atmosphere for meeting the other campers who come from all parts of the world.

The tent camp is a great place to base out of for day trips to Corcovado National Park and for a day trip to snorkel at Cano island. We saw lots of animals, including a tapir, at the park and while snorkeling we saw sharks, turtles and rays. We stayed a few more days and walked around the tent camp - there is a trail in one direction toward the town of Drake Bay and a Trail in the other direction toward Rio Claro - a sweet little freshwater swimming hole! Of course, it is not all about doing - we also took a day and just relaxed in a hammock reading a book, listening to howler monkeys and watching scarlet macaws while listening to the waves. The sunsets were amazing, the night skies were awesome. There are many perfect little beaches, most are deserted. Spend some time on this wild coast - it will be memorable!!!

Pura Vida on the OSA!
Larry, the owner, met us in Sierpe where we took their boat down the river and to Corcovado Adventure tent camp. We had a great five night stay. Our roomy tent had a great beachside view with a nice ocean breeze. Meal times were a great opportunity to chat with other travelers. Our tours to Corcovado National Park and Cano Island were wildlife rich as was the trail we hiked up and down the coast from the tent camp. We found Larry’s place to be a comfortable and relaxed place to vacation on the Osa Peninsula. Pura Vida.

I was so into the whole experience we added another day onto our trip and werlucky it was available to do. Beautiful jungle walk right along the beach. Lots of animals and birding was good with many scarlet macaws, Hawks, caracaras and more. Staff was very professional and helpful. Meals were delicious. I will go back again.

The ideal base for wildlife viewing and relaxing
We spent 2 nights at the tent camp. Getting there is an experience in itself (one hour boat ride from Sierpe). Tents are large (1 double and 1 single bed) and clean with lighting, socket for charging devices and a very effective fan. Each tent has an outdoor covered seating area and plenty of ropes etc for hanging clothes. Lovely hammocks for relaxing. Food was excellent and very well presented. Water and coffee/tea available all day. Bathroom block clean with plenty of toilets and and showers, and really not far from the tents. Beautiful views of the beach and sea, and you can walk along the coast to numerous other lovely beaches. No rubbish or plastic in sight. We did the night walk, Corcovado park hike and Cano Island snorkelling tours. These were certainly not cheap (esp. with the current GBP/USD exchange rate) but definitely value for money given the variety of wildlife around. We saw more than we have previously seen on rainforest or snorkelling tours, including tapirs, dolphins, humpback whales, turtles, rays, numerous frog and toad species (including the red eyed tree frog), snakes, howler monkeys, birds and of course, many insects. Very good quality snorkelling equipment. Tours start early (6 or 7 am) and you’re back at the camp around lunch time so there is plenty of time for relaxing. Overall an excellent 3 days in a beautiful unspoilt place.
Tips - be prepared for beach landings (no jetties) and clothes /shoes being permanently damp!

El hotel es lindo, en una zona completamente aparte, pero eso hace que sólo tengas opción a comer ahí y los alimentos son muy caros y muy simples, sin darte a escoger ni hora ni platillos.
