The Amaya Family Cabins is located on the Amaya family homestead along remote Playa Ricon on the Peninsula de Osa. This is the last frontier of Costa Rica. Accessible reliably only by horseback or boat this is the world of generations past. The Amaya Family Cabins are next to one of the most biologically important spots on the planet, Corcovado National Park. Playa Ricon itself is virtually uninhabited where the only traffic seen is occasionally on horseback. Many of the local inhabitants on and behind the beach are related to the Amaya family, who were pioneers in this special corner of Costa Rica. Internet is via satellite and is not fast and does not work well(or sometimes not at all) if cloudy and not at all if raining. There is cell phone service at top of the ridge overlooking the resort but not on the beachfront portion of the resort. You are in a remote location.

I hate write this because it will generate too much business for this Paradise. It has to be the all time favorite experience for my husband and I. Our trip is everything we dreamed of for over 15 years. The house was clean, the staff...More
