Fodor's Review

No longer only a sportfisher's dream lodge, Aguila de Osa has luxurious, high-ceilinged rooms with handsome, hardwood interiors, king-size beds, and glass-brick-and-granite bathrooms that will please the fussiest traveler. Hairdryers, coffeemakers, and small fridges are now standard equipment, thanks to the arrival of main-grid electricity. Stained-glass lamps with tropical themes and hand-carved cocobolo hardwood doors add local color and artistic flair. Be prepared for a steep climb up to your room with veranda views of Drake Bay and the ocean beyond. Dinner here features perfectly cooked meat and fresh fish, often the catch of the day straight off the lodge's three sportfishing boats. Diving, including certification; snorkeling trips; excursions into Corcovado Park; and boat tours through mangroves round out the activity list. Two-night packages include transfers from Drake Bay or Palmar Sur airports and a boat tour to Corcovado National Park.
