Casita Corcovado
Ranked #2 of 20 Drake Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2012

An absolutely fantastic experience! Jamie and Craig were wonderful hosts that made us feel as if we were family they’d known forever. The property was charming and clean, the rooms were spacious and well appointed, the grounds were gorgeous and the view from the front door is simply unrivaled. The food was top notch and the (amazing) coffee was plentiful. Laughter flowed as Craig (an old Pirate with several life times worth of stories) and Jamie immediately ingratiated themselves with our group. They had a sixth sense and were scarce when we needed alone time yet were there to liven the atmosphere whenever we were dragging. Jamie and Craig are early risers and never made us feel as if we were putting them out when we wanted breakfast at obscene hours prior to the tours they skillfully arranged for us. Jamie and Craig negotiated tour rates (they have their own boat as well for snorkeling, fishing and dolphin and whale watching) and accompanied us to the markets to ensure that we never got charged the "gringo price" for goods (though everyone in Bahia Drake was so friendly I dont know if it was necessary). If there is one downside to Casita Corcovado its that I can't call it home.

Wow! What can I say. Pura Vida. It is people like you that make what we do a complete joy. Had a great time with you all here, a tear in our eyes when you hopped on the boat. Hope your new job back in the U.S. is treating you well and turns out to be all you hoped for. Can't wait for your next visit. A suit and tie is a far cry from t-shirt and flip-flops...lol.

Jamie and Craig are very accommodating hosts who give you an insider's tour of town, get up at any hour to make you a great breakfast, and will arrange anything you need. The house isn't fancy but it's clean and relaxed and you certainly feel welcome. Drake Bay can be pretty pricy but this is good value for money.

Looking for Adventure while staying in a friendly and comfortable family like environment? Then, Casita Corcovado is the place for you. Jamie and Craig who have been living in Drake Bay for many years are the perfect hosts. They know everyone in the area and can pre-arrange (or arrange once in Drake Bay) the Adventures you desire. With their help, we did it all over a week: zip lining through the jungle; horse back riding and swimming in a secluded jungle waterfall; deep sea fishing; snorkeling and diving Canos island; night touring with the "Bug Lady"; guided visit through Corcovado Park; kayaking. They can also arrange your travel from San Jose with a private driver to Sierpe (4 hours) and then the boat ride to Drake Bay (1 hour) on the picturesque Sierpe river. Or you can fly to Drake Bay. Jamie and Craig do all the planning, you do the enjoying! They have 3 bedrooms with A/C (rare in the area) and 1 large bathroom. The rooms are simple but very functional with very comfortable beds. Every morning (which typically starts at 5:00 am), they will prepare before you leave an excellent and copious and always different breakfast (eggs, pancakes, fresh fruits and local juices). Jamie and Craig are wonderful people and our stay in the Osa Peninsula could not have been more enjoyable, thanks to them.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are facing the ocean. However most of the daylight hours are spent outdoors or in the...

This B&B is the best way to experience Drake Bay! Cute, comfortable house with all amenities, great breakfast, clean, nice bathrooms (shared with one or two other bedrooms, but never busy). Craig and Jamie, the owners, are so nice and take care of you, giving you a tour of the town, giving you ideas and hooking you up with tours and hikes and whatever else you could want. I'm definitely coming back! Reasonable prices and great location, too!

The Casita Corcovado is probably the best place to stay in Drake Bay. The hosts, Jamie and Craig, are such a lovely couple. I had such a great time with them and they helped me organize everything from the trip to the corcovado national park to the airport shuttle bus on the day I left. Even if you leave for the park very early in the morning, they will get up to prepare breakfast for you.
The rooms are fully equipped with air conditioning, although this wasn't necessary for me in January. Everything is very stylish, clean, ecological and near to nature. The bed was very big and comfy!
The way Jamie and Craig life is very inspiring to me: Their rhythm goes by the daylight: In the morning they get up with the sun, in the evening they go to bed at sunset. They love nature and care a lot about the town and environment. It was so interesting talking to them about all sorts of things. Craig said to me he loves having guests from all over the world as he can "go to school" everyday since he learns so much about the world that way. And you feel this! Those guys built their own little paradise down at Drake Bay and you can be part of it. Don't miss it!
