TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Rancho Corcovado Drake Bay
We ended up pitching a tent in the front of this hotel, right above the beach. The old man working the office was very nice, and agreed to let us pitch our tent out front for cheap. We also looked at a couple of the rooms up on the hill, and they had unbelievable views.

... night we removed about 30 before going to sleep. They started their march as soon as darkness fell and continued through the night. Jim insisted on putting the light on when he went to the bathroom as he didn't want to stand on them. It is amazing how quickly one adjusts to the unexpected.
So after three days of relaxing by the beach we moved to Hacienda Baru. This is probably our favourite place so far. A man named Jack Ewing went to work on the ...

While the actually bridge wasn't as grand as I had hoped, it was a great hike with some cool waterfalls and swimming holes. A perfect pre mountain hike. Plan on leaving around 4am tomorrow for about an 8hr hike up to catch the sunset. Then wake up early on Friday to see the sunrise and hike back ...
