Las Caletas was one of the most incredible places I have ever stayed at. Its tranquil beauty and remoteness bestows a feeling of peace and unity with nature. At the same time, the level of service the owners (Jolanda and David) provide made us feel so well taken care off that we were able to relax completely and enjoy every...

My husband and I stayed at Las Caletas over Christmas 2008 as a treat at the start of a five month round the world trip and I can honestly say it still remains one of our favourite hotels in the world. We arrived at Las Caletas in serious need of relaxation and recouperation and left feeling like new people after...

We can echo the high praise others have given Las Caletas with regards to location, food, and the resident naturalist's excellent guiding skills. In addition we would like to note that the bird watching right on the property is excellent. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cabin and found that we could spot dozens of species of birds right from our...

We had an amazing stay at Las Caletas staying in the honeymoon room (2 floor hut) up at the top of the property. We could hear howler monkeys as we went to sleep and woke up and so much wildlife around the room and hotel - absolutely stunning. The views from the restaurant over the sea are stunning and we...

Las Caletas is a special place. If you are into wildlife, birding, the beauty of the Osa Peninsula and the outdoors, this is for you. We stayed in the Honeymoon Cottage, at the top of a hill, and woke up to the sound of the surf , birds, and monkeys every morning. We saw much of the unique wildlife of...

We stayed here for 5 nights in March 2009. We booked late and were offered a tent, which turned out to be perfect for us. It meant we didn't have a room that shared a wall w/ a family (although several cabins are free standing) and sharing a bathroom with those in the other tents was fine. The tent we...

I spent 6 nights at Las Caletas and had a wonderful time. The setting is idyllic, and the vibe is very laid back, welcoming, homey, and very comfortable. I slept in one of the tents because no bungalows were available. The tent turned out to be very comfortable. It is very roomy, sits on a platform and is as clean...

Jolanda and David run a wonderful lodge. Their guide Eric is superb, especially at finding mammals in Corcovado Park. We also enjoyed the night tour and the trip to Cano Island (our 8 year olds loved their first experience snorkeling.) Our boys are picky eaters, I call them "pastafarians" since that's about all they eat, so we especially appreciated the...

This was our first stop, and although very tired after our journey from England, I instantly relaxed. We stayed in the "honeymoon cabin" which I liked as it was a little more private than some of the other rooms. I loved sitting watching the birds and animals pass by. David was a great host, and we had some enjoyable trips...

My wife and I spent 7 nights at Las Caletas in February 2009. The lodge has 8 to 10 or so rooms/cabins and hosts perhaps 15 - 20 people at a time. The setting is simple and you arrive by motor boat with a short dash through the surf to the beach... expect to get a little wet.... it's warm...
