Copa de Arbol

For a luxury, eco-boutique experience in the heart of the rainforest, look no further than Copa de Arbol. This small eco-resort creates an intimate environment unlike any other between guests, the ocean, the wildlife, and the rainforest. Copa de Arbol, set among 70 acres of pristine rainforest reserve between Drake Bay and Corcovado National Park, is the first eco-resort to add a luxury element to the west coastline of The Osa Peninsula. With unmatched wildlife encounters, endless small coves and beaches, and miles of hiking trails, Copa de Arbol is the perfect hotel for couples and families looking for an off-the-beaten-path, all-inclusive experience without sacrificing luxurious comforts and service.

The Osa experience starts the moment you hop off the plane/ground transport and into a boat that will take you to Copa de Arbol. Once your boat has arrived to the hotel, you’ll dip your feet into the warm Pacific waters and walk up the sandy beach or a refreshing welcome drink at the reception. There are just 10 free-standing bungalows on the property, each with its own unique layout and ocean/ jungle view. Every bungalow is equipped with hardwood floors, A/C (a unique feature in The Osa), ceiling fan, orthopedic pillow-top mattress, bathroom, and safe (no TV). Every bungalow also features a balcony or terrace with seating to enjoy the sights and sounds of the surrounding rainforest and Pacific Ocean. Each and every bungalow is constructed with recycled or reforested woods and decorated with eco-chic, Balinese-style furnishings.

While it’s logical to spend most of your free days hiking the world famous Corcovado National Park or enjoying the warm Pacific waters, what makes Copa de Arbol unique to The Osa are its additional amenities. Copa de Arbol is one of the few hotels in the region to offer a pool – a 3-tiered infinity pool topped off with a heated Jacuzzi to complete a fourth tier. You’ll also find complimentary kayaks and paddleboards to explore nearby coves and secluded beaches. A fully stocked bar with bell-service allows guests to order cocktails while by the pool or in the Jacuzzi. For dining, a full meal plan with artfully and deliciously created plates feature native fruits and vegetables, “catch of the day” seafood, freshly baked breads, and specialty coffees.

Even with the charm and beauty of Copa de Arbol’s bungalows and amenities, the true drawing point is its location within The Osa Peninsula. Copa de Arbol is located just a few miles from the incredible Corcovado National Park, which is a 300,000-acre habitat known as “the most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic. It is home to hundreds of birds, sloths, four species of monkeys, giant tapirs, crocodiles, butterflies, snakes, and wild cats. Off the mainland and into the sea, you’ll also find an abundance of marine life located on a marine reserve just seven miles off shore called Cano Island. Cano Island an excellent location for water activities, offering some of the best snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing in Costa Rica. Between Copa de Arbol’s numerous amenities and its prime location, there is plenty to do and see for a three to five night stay!
