Welcome to the jungle! Copa de Arbol is an eco beach front resort, secluded in 70 acres of tropical rainforest in Drake Bay.

Will and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

Hidden in the trees are ten sustainably sourced cabins. As well as having complimentary rhythmic sounds of the rainforest and ocean, they also have great views of both. Cabins are kitted out with wooden decking and seating areas, comfortable furnishings and en suite bathrooms.

The resort's open air restaurant and bar are in a great spot on the beach font, serving a wide variety of cocktails and fusion dishes. We can highly recommend the 'catch of the day' and some fresh coconut water.

Copa de Arbol is perfect for guests seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. In fact the resort is so secluded that you can only access it by boat. Located in the Corcovado National Park and Isla Del Cano biological reserve, there is plenty of wildlife for guests to see, twitchers may revel in the fact that they could chance a glance at eight kinds of hummingbirds on the Copa grounds or chestnut-madibled toucans. Other species found in the area include monkeys, pilot whales, coatis, peccaries and even sloths. The resort's guides are on hand to help teach and share their passion for wildlife with guests. Other activities include morning or evening walks, hiking, snorkelling and scuba diving trips, mangroves tours, sunset catamarans, yoga and horse riding.

Why we love it

With so much choice of activities it only makes sense to have a private massage on your cabin decking in the early evening.
