I went here with my cousins and we were very happy. We stayed in one of the tent cabins (the bathroom is shared). It's a beautiful setting a bit south of Drake Bay- an hour walk or a quick boat ride. Jolanda was really helpful with reserving our stay and the owner is very nice too. It's a 5 minute... More

Same for the way there by boat from Sierpe they charged 40$ eventhough the boat was running anyways for groceries and bringing workers to the... More

We were fortunate to stay at Las Caletas for four nights last week. We found the perfect place to stay. Jolanda was so helpful in making arrangements and making sure we were picked up at the small airport in Drake Bay. The trip getting there is an adventure itself, we flew into SJO airport and walked two blocks to Sansa... More

We spent the first part of our time in Drake Bay in a simple pension in town. That was great, easy walk to restaurant, store. Then we took a boat over to Las Caletas. Beautiful spot, fairly isolated. Had a tent for the first night, then moved to Iguana room attached to the restaurant. Both places were nice, tent did... More

Yolanda organizes your whole stay, including tours. The food is awesome! The cabin was nice, just a little warm to sleep comfortably. David takes very good care of his guests. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Fantastic setting overlooking Bahia Drake, friendly staff and great food. Incredible gardens full of a wide variety of birds and the occasional capuchin monkey. The cabins were comfortable and cool and we had a relaxing stay. They also take care to recycle which is especially pleasing. The only slight downside was the lack of more comfortable communal seating out of... More

You forget that there is an outside world when you stay at this lodge. David was very helpful.; thanks the seating at dinner (at long tables) you get to know the other guests really well. The nature walk with Gabriel to the Sirena area of the Corcovado NationalPark was brilliant.

After a very bad start at the neighbours (Corcovado tentcamp) we moved to Las Caletas which was everything we expected. Jolanda is a great host who knows what her guests need. Our tent was clean and comfortabel, great location, helpfull and friendly staff and absolutely great food|! The only downside is the cold water showers when staying in a tent.
