Travel Blogs from Drake Bay
Vandaag uitgeslapen tot 8u30/vroeg opgestaan en een boek gelezen. Na een echt tico-ontbijt (bonen en rijst)/continental breakfast onze bagage een beetje geherorganiseerd en een paar inkopen gedaan in 'el supermercado local' zodat alles klaar is voor het vertrek naar Parco Nacional Corcovado morgen. In de namiddag nog naar een strandje in de buurt …
To sum up my trip to Osa, all one has to do is listen to the Michel Teló song "Ai Se Eu Te Pego." Just kidding, my trip wasn't torturous. That song did, however, become somewhat of our anthem since we could so easily change the lyrics to "osa...oas...so much biodiversity...oh if we snorkel...oh so many activities" Imagine the seven of us wild …

As expected our accommodation is simple but adequate and it is probably the most relaxing place I have ever been. The hammocks are very comfortable. In fact some people don't even need hammocks – see last photograph! We want to take some trips but will say more about them in the next blog.
... not much point making the effort really. I’m not quite sure how Willem got wet I think he was between me and Jan and just got caught out. Luckily for him it was only his shoes and not anything else but at the same time unfortunately for both us we were only halfway there so another 10kms walked in wet shoes, ho hum. It’s about this point where the ticks start to appear on the trail. They are tiny little suckers that are little more than specks when they ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsCabinas Manolo Drake Bay
When I decided to go to Osa I imagined an isolated bug ridden sweaty experience. Cabinas Manolo is amazing! I skyped with my credit card company from their place (in the jungle,) they have a very nice restaurant with great "naturales," a warm and knowledgeable staff, and clean clean rooms. I was very impressed.
