We stayed 4 nights at the Rio Drake Farm this end of May/beginning of June and even though it was the rainy season and we got a few showers, we have to say it was really great to be there. Edu and Sabrina are very nice hosts, they know very well the place, the surrounding nature, you see they want...

My husband and I stayed 5 nights at the farm. If you don't need 5 star amenities, and have a sense of adventure, do yourself a favor and stay here. We arrived via a Nature Air flight which is the start of the adventure. You land on a gravel runway, complete with mud puddles. Wow! Edu met us at the...

I would highly recommend staying at Rio Drake! We were there with a family of 7 (4 kids 7,9,11 and grandparents) for 4 days and we were so happy we chose to stay there. The rooms were the cleanest we stayed in and the property was peaceful and wonderfully maintained. There are multiple places to lounge in hammocks and enjoy...

Edu and Sabrina have created a wonderful atmosphere of peace and tranquility here. The property itself is hard to summarize. It is a wildlife haven and a working farm. It isn't really a beach resort, but you can walk to the beach in a few minutes via a jungle trail and suspension bridge over a lagoon. You can hear the...

Our stay at Rio Drake Farm was lovely. Edu and Sabrina were wonderful hosts, they worked around the clock booking us tours, preparing meals and making sure we got to wherever we needed to be on time. They had a very strong knowledge of the natural history in the area which was really helpful. The area was beautiful and there...

The hotel is located close to Corcovado National Park. The host of the hotel takes care of organising your admission to the park and is also driving you to the pier for the boat trip to the park and getting you back to the hotel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days here, and I recommend Rio Drake for everyone looking to get away and rest in nature and solitude. The accommodations are very rustic, but this is all you will need - you are not there to spend time inside your room. There is a wonderful lounge area complete with hammocks, great hiking trails and...
