Drake Bay is an oasis of natural beauty and peace in our increasingly hectic world. The hotel offers a simpler lifestyle that is more in tune with nature. However, this version of eco-tourism doesn't mean you'll sleep rough! All beds have orthopedic mattresses. All cabins and bungalows at Pirate Cove Hotel have hot water showers and 24-hour electricity. A delicious European-Costa Rican style cooking, homemade bread ,and deserts receive very high praise.

You have to wake up really early to eat breakfast and be ready to leave for the park before 7:00 a.m. Corcovado National Park is probably the most isolated and beautiful park in the country. You can see all four Costa Rican species of monkeys there. Bring your bird book because there are over 400 species in the area. However, it's not easy spotting them among the dense primary rainforest.

Watch your step so you don't get in the way of the army ants. Your guide will show you strange and wonderful trees such as the "Leche de Vaca" (which the Indians used to cure ulcers) and the "Walking Tree" (which actually moves several inches each year). He will explain more or less how this special ecosystem functions, although the greatest experts admit they may know less than half of the total species that live here.  There may be one hundred different types of trees in one hundred meters. At midday you stop to eat your picnic lunch on a deserted beach or else swim at San Pedrillo waterfall. The 4-5 hour walk is not terribly difficult but be prepared for a lot of ups and downs through the uneven jungle. You will be ready for a shower and a snooze when you return to the hotel. (Duration: 7 hours approximately)
