Corcovado National Park is one of the few places in the world that truly merits the phrase teeming with wildlife. National geographic named it "the most biologically intense place on Earth" with good reason. Its proximity to the equator, and the fact that it makes up part of an isthmus that connects North and South America, create ideal circumstances for over 13 types of forest to thrive -- along with the dizzying array of wildlife inhabiting them.
Copa del Árbol Beach and Rainforest Resort is a secluded eco-conscious beachfront Drake Bay hotel set amid 70 acres of primary rainforest reserve.
The resort is placed in Southern Pacific Costa Rica on the Osa Peninsula, situated halfway between Drake Bay and the Corcovado National Park in an area called “Caletas” (small coves).
The only way to get to Copa de Arbol is by boat, as it is surrounded by a most exuberant rainforest and the beautiful sound of the ocean waves. This is also a place to see a vast array of fauna such as the four species of monkeys, toucans, sloths and if lucky, the cats: Margays, ocelots and the mighty jaguars are in this area.
The grounds offer endless small lagoons and miles of forest trails that make Copa del Arbol a lovely spot to unwind, relax and enjoy nature at its best.
