The SpaceA stay at Sierpe del Pacifico is Costa Rica at its finest...remote and comfortable...nature in its purest form all around you...adventure rich...and much more affordable for families than the Drake Bay Eco-Lodges This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here, each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation. Start your mornings with the sounds of howler monkeys, the sight of tropical sunrises, and the aroma of Costa Rican coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. Fill you days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure, all available directly from your front steps. Finally, wind down the evening watching the flight of white ibis across the sunset over Isla Violin with a cold cervesa or mojito in hand. Sound like paradise to you...we think so too! Our cabina's location on the Sierpe River - a fully navigable river that flows into the Pacific Ocean - serves as a direct connection to all of the best adventure activities that Costa Rica is known for. Accessible directly from the front steps of the cabina are 5 kilometers of hiking trails that weave through primary rainforest, wetlands, mangroves, and 3 tropical fruit filled gardens - all great for wildlife watching and birding. Feel free to help yourself to the fruit as well, the resident monkeys certainly do! Four kayaks are stored on-site and are yours to use for exploring the river and its tributaries. Are you a fan of fishing? If so, you'll be glad to know that some sizable red snapper and snook have been caught from the two riverfront piers. For adrenaline junkies some pretty intense mountain biking and horseback riding trails connect the SDP property to the Mirimar mountain range to the south. Finally, if you just want to sit back and enjoy the wide open views of three coastal mountain ranges, Isla Violin, and the daily flights of macaws, toucans, and parrots over the river, two additional hill-top scenic overlook verandas are just a couple minutes walk from the cabina. In addition to the on-site activities, it is highly recommended that you arrange for a variety of tour boats to pick you up at the riverfront dock for some of the ocean related activities that have made this area so popular with tourists. Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling/diving (Costa Rica's most renowned) and dolphin/whale watching at Cano Island, and wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park. The cabina itself is 5 years old and was built in the signature Sierpe del Pacifico 'refined rustic' style. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of screened in windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 215 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely off the grid here, a well appointed solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone coverage will keep you comfortable and connected. Ask owner about internet options. The beds are all custom made from exotic hardwoods, have orthopedic mattresses, and use high thread count sheets. While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a decent sized hill. While the cabina is newer and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid” and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but 4 overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition! This home is not suitable for children aged 2 and under. Ask about suitability for children ages 3-6. Please note that this home is not located in Drake Bay proper. Instead it is located on the Sierpe River. Most of the tours and attractions that people enjoy from Drake Bay can be enjoyed from this home as well. Please ask owner for details about location. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entirety of the home. The home is located on a 63 acre community with 3 other cottages, only one of which has regular guests. You will have access to all community areas including hiking trails, 3 gardens, 2 docks, 4 kayaks, and 2 mountain bikes. Interaction with GuestsWe meet you at our office, transport you to the home by boat, assist you with your luggage, and then leave you to enjoy the best of the Osa. An employee of ours is available by phone for questions, tour booking, arranging boat transport, and emergencies. The NeighborhoodWe have the best access in Costa Rica to rainforest, river, and ocean environments...all from one beautiful home! Getting AroundPlease read house rules for very important information regarding the nature of staying at an off the grid, solar powered, boat access only home in the rainforest. There is a wealth of information in here about transport. Other Things to NotePlease read house rules for very important information regarding the nature of staying at an off the grid, solar powered, boat access only home in the rainforest.

Our newly built, 1,800 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 360 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping! Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 5 min walk away. The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with two attached full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck. The bedroom features a queen size bed, large armoire and a 180 degree view of the rain forest, the surrounding tropical landscape and river valley below.

Many of these tours are given at no additional charge to our guest with their paid rental. When you come and visit us, included is a full time guide and housekeeper whose sole job is to make your vacation the most memorable, stress free, work free as possible any way that they can.

If you would like to go on a night tour, no problem, if you want to go to a rain forest waterfall, no problem, how about getting you some wild cilantro from the forest for that fresh Ceviche you’re going to make, they can do that to. Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach? There are many other tours available in the area that are not included in the rental fee as they’re operated by independent tour companies. These operators will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the surrounding rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes.

Don’t worry we will transport your luggage and supplies up the hill for you. Travelers considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be physically fit and better geared towards those who are adventurous & enjoy hiking and don’t mind getting a little dirty from time to time ( we have hot water showers and a washing machine as well). *Please ask about our Children rates and the suitability for the elderly or infirm.

The NeighborhoodTHE OSA PENINSULA Located in the south west of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. It is one of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled - it is only within the last 10 years that it has had road access - and consequently much of the Peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rain forest. At least half of the Osa's extensive tracts of rain forest and swamps are protected by Corcovado National Park, and Private Reserves. Its forests are home to endangered species such as Baird's tapir, the white-lipped peccary, the jaguars the America crocodiles, and the harpy eagle (only recently been re-sighted). It boasts the largest population of the endangered scarlet macaws in the country, and is the center of the very restricted distribution of the endangered Central American squirrel monkey. This small peninsula is host to almost half of Costa Rica's 860 species of birds (that is almost 5% of the world's species!), 140 species of mammals, and 117 species of reptiles and amphibians. Almost 750 species of trees have been cataloged in the area, more trees than in all of the North temperate regions of the world combined. Impressive credentials indeed! Per unit area, the Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity on earth. The National Geographic magazine described the Osa Peninsula as 'the most biologically intense place on earth'. This description is a reference to the incredible abundance of wildlife on the Osa Peninsula -not only in it's rain forests, but in it's surrounding marine environment as well. Botanically, the Osa Peninsula has strong affinities with that of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, and its unique forests contain more endemic plants and animals than in any other area of Central America. Climatically, the Osa is the wettest place on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, receiving up to 7 meters of rain annually. Some of the Osa Peninsula's landmarks are described below. RIO SIERPE and the Terraba River valley The Rio Sierpe and its watershed, the Dequis Valley, isolate the Osa Peninsula from the mainland. This substantial river is unusual in that it is tidal almost up to its source, the Sierpe Lagoon. The Rio Sierpe is roughly divisible into two wetland areas: the flooded forests of the upper Rio Sierpe basin, and the extensive mangrove swamps of its delta. Getting AroundThere are many ways that you can get from the international airport in San Jose. Daily regional flights on nature Air and Sansa Airline fly into Palmar Norte which is 10 min away from Sierpe. You can drive directly into Sierpe, about a 5 hr drive by several means; rental car, private taxi (200.00 one way)public bus (15.00pp) Shared taxi or shuttle bus (60.00 pp). Once you find your way into Sierpe we will drop you off and pick you up by our private boat. Other Things to NoteWhile there’s no doubt that Casa Rio Sierpe is in an awe inspiring location that would give anyone memories of a lifetime, we realize that because of the remote geographic location, rain forest and boat only access that it is not suitable for everyone. The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a decent sized hill at the end.

Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling, diving (Costa Rica's most renowned), and wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park. The cabina itself is only 2 years old and was built in the signature Sierpe del Pacifico 'refined rustic' style. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of screened in windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 215 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely off the grid here, a well appointed solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone coverage will keep you comfortable and connected. Ask about internet options. The beds are all custom made from exotic hardwoods, have orthopedic mattresses, and use high thread count sheets. While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a decent sized hill. While the cabina is brand new and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid� and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but 4 overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition! This home is not suitable for children aged 2 and under. Ask about suitability for children ages 3-6.

Our newly built, 2,200 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 360 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping! Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 5 min walk away. The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with one attached full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck.

Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach? There are many other tours available in the area that are not included in the rental fee as they’re operated by independent tour companies. These operators will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a decent sized hill at the end.

Travelers considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be physically fit and better geared towards those who are adventurous & enjoy hiking and don't mind getting a little dirty from time to time ( we have hot water showers and a washing machine as well).

THE OSA PENINSULA Located in the south west of Costa Rica, the Osa Peninsula is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country. It is one of the last places in Costa Rica to be settled - it is only within the last 10 years that it has had road access - and consequently much of the Peninsula is still covered in majestic, pristine rainforest. At least half of the Osa's extensive tracts of rainforest and swamps are protected by Corcovado National Park, and Private Reserves. Its forests are home to endangered species such as Baird's tapir, the white-lipped peccary, the jaguars the America crocodiles, and the harpy eagle (only recently been re-sighted). It boasts the largest population of the endangered scarlet macaws in the country, and is the center of the very restricted distribution of the endangered Central American squirrel monkey. This small peninsula is host to almost half of Costa Rica's 860 species of birds (that is almost 5% of the world's species!), 140 species of mammals, and 117 species of reptiles and amphibians. Almost 750 species of trees have been catalogued in the area, more trees than in all of the North temperate regions of the world combined. Impressive credentials indeed! Per unit area, the Osa Peninsula holds possibly the highest natural diversity on earth. The National Geographic magazine described the Osa Peninsula as 'the most biologically intense place on earth'. This description is a reference to the incredible abundance of wildlife on the Osa Peninsula -not only in it's rainforests, but in it's surrounding marine environment as well. Botanically, the Osa Peninsula has strong affinities with that of the Amazon and Orinoco basins, and its unique forests contain more endemic plants and animals than in any other area of Central America. Climatically, the Osa is the wettest place on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, receiving up to 7 meters of rain annually. Some of the Osa Peninsula's landmarks are described below. RIO SIERPE and the Terraba River valley The Rio Sierpe and its watershed, the Dequis Valley, isolate the Osa Peninsula from the mainland. This substantial river is unusual in that it is tidal almost up to its source, the Sierpe Lagoon. The Rio Sierpe is roughly divisible into two wetland areas: the flooded forests of the upper Rio Sierpe basin, and the extensive mangrove swamps of its delta. The upper Rio Sierpe wetland is virtually uninhabited, relatively unspoiled and it contains large areas of raffia palm swamp, flooded forest and lagoons. Fingers of high ground, thickly clad in rain forest, permeate this area. The delta of the Rio Sierpe, which it shares with the Rio Terraba, is the most extensive area of mangrove swamp in Costa Rica and largest in Latin America (almost 50% of all the mangrove wetland of the country). This swamp is permeated by a maze of channels in which it is easy to become lost! The eight species of mangrove found here are some of the tallest in the world – red, black, grey, and tea mangroves being the most common varieties. These fascinating plants – and their tangled roots – have evolved to survive despite high salinity levels, and the low oxygen content of the mud in which they grow. The impressive mangroves provide a valuable coastal ecosystem to an abundance of avian, mammalian, reptilian and aquatic animals. Birding enthusiasts come from all over the globe to experience the area's phenomenal birdwatching opportunities. Both resident and migratory birds visit these swamps, which also boast two endemic hummingbird species: the mangrove hummingbird and the yellow-billed cotinga. On the coastal fringe of this delta, near the mouth of the Rio Sierpe, lies Violin Island. Sir Francis Drake reputedly buried a large treasure here. The many attempts to find this treasure have met with no success. However, Violin Island has yielded many gold nuggets of one or more kilos in weight. CAÑO ISLAND BIOLOGICAL RESERVE Located 16.5 kilometres of the western coast of the Osa Peninsula, Caño Island is 300 hectares in area with 5,800 hectares of Sea included in the Reserve. While the Island itself is home to relatively few animals and plants, its surrounding waters abound with marine life: colourful reef fish, impressive schools of large pelagic fish, manta rays, sharks, turtles, whales and dolphins. Caño Island is second only to Coco Island in the quality of its diving in Costa Rica. Historically, Caño Island was the sacred burial ground of the Boruca Indians, and many artefacts, including stone spheres, are testimony to this pre-Columbian past. Costa Rica not only offers some of the best sport fishing in the world, it delivers as well. With over 44 line class records, 14 fly records, and 18 all-tackle records, the fishing experience here is nothing short of a bona fide phenomena. Sailfish, black marlin, blue marlin and yellow fin tuna have given this land its claim to fame throughout international angling circles.

Casa Rio Sierpe is located on the northern edge of the Osa Peninsula along the banks of the Sierpe River, approximately 35 minutes by boat from the quaint town of Sierpe, which is considered the gate way to Osa. Casa Rio Sierpe is located among 2,500 acres of private reserve and adjoins the Térraba-Sierpe National Wetlands in the Osa Peninsula. This area is one of the most remote, most spectacular and wildest regions in the country home to 2.5% of the world’s biodiversity and dubbed by National Geographic as “the most biologically intense place on earth”. The house is located in the heart of true primary and secondary rain forest, a plethora of wild life is to be found many of which are endangered or threatened. There are breathtaking post card views from the house and direct ocean access where you will find extremely private, pristine beaches all only 10 min away by boat, we truly have it all! Are you looking to discover the magic of Costa Rica's rain forests, wildlife and pristine beaches? Are you planning your honey moon or looking to rekindle your romance? Are you an avid fisherman? With over 98 line and tackle world records recorded in both fresh and salt water in the immediate area you are sure to have that once in a lifetime fishing trip. Perhaps you’re an active adventure seeker looking for a nonstop, adrenaline filled vacation or you just want to relax on our back deck in the double hammock with a glass of wine or cold cerveza and watch the monotonous grind and stress of modern day life melt away before you. Are you having a hard time satisfying everyone’s needs in a vacation? Perhaps you are looking for a romantic getaway but others want to go fishing, you want to go to the beach, others want to experience the rain forest, why choose only one when you can have it all! A stay at casa Rio Sierpe guarantees to fulfill your wildest vacation dreams and it will rejuvenate your mind, body and soul providing you with a virtual backstage pass to one of the world's most fascinating and diverse destinations. At Casa Rio Sierpe you'll find ultra-private luxury accommodations and full service amenities typically only found in resorts but in the comfort and privacy of a home. Our newly built, 2,200 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 360 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping! Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 5 min walk away. The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with one attached full bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck. The first bedroom features a queen size bed, large armoire and a 180 degree view of the rain forest and river valley below. The second bedroom, which is located upstairs gives a guest an abundance of privacy and features a king size bed, dresser and private 130 sq ft balcony with amazing, birds eye views of the river and the surrounding tropical landscape. The over sized kitchen is fully equipped with top of the line appliances including a side by side refrigerator/freezer, 6 burner gas stove with oven, reverse osmosis purified water and of course a blender! Also, don’t worry about doing those dishes, you’re on vacation, our staff will take care of those as well! All of this is sure to sooth any culinary indulgence that a guest may have! The living room opens directly onto the 600 ft2, covered back terrace complete with ceiling fans, double hammock, lounge & rocking chairs, Webber BBQ and a large dining room table. This is the perfect spot for your daily relaxation, enjoying breath taking views and meeting many of our local neighbors as well. Almost on any given day expect to see resident Scarlet macaws, parrots, Toucans, Aracaris, noisy parakeets, hummingbirds, squirrels, Howler monkeys, white face Capuchin monkeys, frogs, butterflies and at night Kinkajous. And if you are very fortunate you may even see the endangered Spider monkey, Ant eaters, Tayras, Sloths, Jaguarundi cat, White-lipped peccary pigs and the White nosed coatis. Not only is Casa Rio Sierpe’s location poised for optimal wildlife observation it is also a perfect home base for a variety of activities from land to sea that are sure to keep even the most active vacationer busy. Most of these tours are given at no additional charge to our guest with their paid rental. When you come and visit us, included is a full time guide and housekeeper whose sole job is to make your vacation the most memorable, stress free, work free as possible any way that they can. They will give you private guided tours, carry your grocery bags, take you river fishing, clean the house, find fresh fruit, do your dishes and even get you a fresh coconut to drink at the beach. We have over 10 miles of hiking trails along with several kayaking trails that our resident onsite guide will personally guide you on, day or night, along the way pointing out hard to see wildlife that you would normally miss and introducing you to interesting flora and fauna. If you would like to go on a night tour, no problem, if you want to go to a rain forest waterfall, no problem, how about getting you some wild cilantro from the forest for that fresh Ceviche you’re going to make, they can do that to. Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach? There are many other tours available in the area that are not included in the rental fee as they’re operated by independent tour companies. These operators will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a decent sized hill at the end. Don't worry we will transport your luggage and supplies up the hill for you. Travelers considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be physically fit and better geared towards those who are adventurous & enjoy hiking and don't mind getting a little dirty from time to time ( we have hot water showers and a washing machine as well). Here at Casa Rio Sierpe there is an unspoken message of privacy, peace, tranquility and above all - the splendor of nature. We hope that you come and visit us and discover the beauty and enchantment of this distinctive Costa Rican sanctuary for yourself... *Please ask about the suitability for the elderly or infirm. **Extra nightly per person Child rate; Please note that Flipkey does not correctly quote the extra fee per person per night for children.

                  A stay at Sierpe del Pacifico is Costa Rica at its finest...remote and comfortable accommodations...nature in its purest form all around you...adventure rich...much more affordable for families than the Drake Bay Eco-Lodges This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here, each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation. Start your mornings with the sounds of howler monkeys, the sight of tropical sunrises, and the aroma of Costa Rican coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. Fill you days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure, all available directly from your front steps. Finally, wind down the evening watching the flight of white ibis across the sunset over Isla Violin with a cold cervesa or mojito in hand. Sound like paradise to you...we think so too! Our cabina's location on the Sierpe River - a fully navigable river that flows into the Pacific Ocean - serves as a direct connection to all of the best adventure activities that Costa Rica is known for. Accessible directly from the front steps of the cabina are 5 kilometers of hiking trails that weave through primary rainforest, wetlands, mangroves, and 3 tropical fruit filled gardens - all great for wildlife watching and birding. Feel free to help yourself to the fruit as well, the resident monkeys certainly do! Four kayaks are stored on-site and are yours to use for exploring the river and its tributaries. Are you a fan of fishing? If so, you'll be glad to know that some sizable red snapper and snook have been caught from the two riverfront piers. For adrenaline junkies some pretty intense mountain biking and horseback riding trails connect the SDP property to the Mirimar mountain range to the south. Finally, if you just want to sit back and enjoy the wide open views of three coastal mountain ranges, Isla Violin, and the daily flights of macaws, toucans, and parrots over the river, two additional hill-top scenic overlook verandas are just a couple minutes walk from the cabina. In addition to the on-site activities, it is highly recommended that you arrange for a variety of tour boats to pick you up at the riverfront dock for some of the ocean related activities that have made this area so popular with tourists. Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling, diving (Costa Rica's most renowned), and wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park. The cabina itself is relatively new and was built in the signature Sierpe del Pacifico 'refined rustic' style. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of screened in windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 215 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely off the grid here, a well appointed solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone coverage will keep you comfortable and connected. Ask about internet options. The beds are all custom made from exotic hardwoods, have orthopedic mattresses, and use high thread count sheets. While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a decent sized hill. While the cabina is brand new and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid” and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition! This home is not suitable for children aged 2 and under or the infirm. Ask about suitability for children ages 3-6 or those with limited physical abilities.

There are spacious 3/4 baths with high volume/pressure showers in both the upstairs and downstairs. The kitchen is fully stocked and features island seating for six, a gas range/oven, and a sizable refrigerator. For entertainment purposes there is a stereo/CD player/ipod adapter, and books and board games. 3G cell phone service at the property is very good and can provide broadband internet to cell phones and laptop connect cards. Upon your arrival by boat (it’s the only way to get here) the boat captain will walk you up the access road to the cabina and help you with your bags. The beds will be made, the fridge will be cold, and linens and towels will be available for the duration of your stay. Maid service can be arranged for an extra charge. For your safety and convenience there is an on-site caretaker who lives a few hundred yards away. A cell phone will also be provided to you for emergency contact and booking of tours. While the enjoyment of our river retreat provides the ultimate in tranquility, beauty, and seclusion, it must be said that this experience is better geared towards those who are adventurous, independent, and enjoy physical activities. The walk to the cabina from the boat dock is the equivalent of a few blocks and involves a large hill. While the cabina is brand new and provides a wide range of modern comforts and conveniences, you must remember that you are “off the grid” and in the middle of a tropical rainforest. This cabin does not have air conditioning, but 4 overhead fans and a design utilizing cross-ventilation measures keeps the cabina comfortable. In our version of paradise we sacrifice air conditioning for air of the purest condition! This home is not suitable for children aged 2 or younger or the infirm. Ask about suitability for children aged 3-6 and the elderly. Please contact me for availability, and don't forget to watch our promotional video!

                    This is your chance to completely escape the monotonous grind of everyday life and rejuvenate your body and mind with a healthy dose of natural beauty, active adventure, rustic luxury, and cultural authenticity. All five senses will be on full alert here…each one contributing to an overall sense of joy and relaxation. Start your mornings with the sounds of howler monkeys, the sight of tropical sunrises, and the aroma of Costa Rican coffee that would put Starbucks to shame. Fill your days with a plethora of river, ocean, or rainforest adventure – all available directly from your front steps. Finally, wind down the evening watching the flight of white ibis across the sunset over Isla Violin with a cold cervesa or mojito in hand. Sound like paradise to you...we think so too! Our home's location on the Sierpe River – a fully navigable river that flows into the Pacific Ocean – serves as a direct connection to all of the best adventure activities that Costa Rica is known for. Accessible directly from the front steps of the cabina are 5 kilometers of hiking trails that weave through primary rainforest, wetlands, mangroves, and 3 tropical fruit filled gardens - great for wildlife watching and birding. Feel free to help yourself to the fruit, the resident monkeys certainly do! Four kayaks are stored on-site and are yours to use for exploring the river and its tributaries. Are you a fan of fishing? If so, you’ll be glad to know that some sizable red snapper and snook have been caught from the two riverfront piers. For adrenaline junkies some pretty intense mountain biking and horseback riding trails connect the property to the Mirimar mountain range to the south. Just want to relax?...then you'll love the lounger and hammock on the deck overlooking the river.. In addition to the on-site activities, it is highly recommended that you arrange for a variety of tour boats to pick you up at the riverfront dock for some of the ocean related activities that have made this area so popular with tourists. Favorites include deep-sea fishing (world class in-shore and off-shore), snorkeling, diving (Costa Rica’s most renowned), wildlife watching in Corcovado National Park, Cano Island hiking, snorkeling, surfing, beach cruises, and dolphin and whale watching. All of these tours can easily be arranged for you by the owner and are of a very high quality. The home itself is brand new and was built in the signature “refined rustic” style of our Canadian builder. Large beamed exotic hardwoods combine with lofted ceilings and ample use of screened in windows to emphasize views of, and harmony with, the natural surroundings. A 300 sq. ft. veranda has rocking chairs, a breakfast nook, and lounger available to relax in while enjoying the amazing views. Despite being very isolated and completely “off the grid”, a very large solar system, on demand hot water, and 3G cell phone will keep you comfortable and connected. Ask about internet. King and queen sized beds, 500 thread count sheets, and custom built furniture convey a true sense of luxury in the jungle. One of two spacious 3/4 baths with high volume/pressure showers connect directly to first floor bedroom and living area, while the other is located in the upstairs master suite. The kitchen/dining area seats up to 9 and has a 6 burner oven/stove, fridge, and freezer.

Our newly built, 2,200 ft2 home is the perfect combination of modern and rustic styles blending Pacific Rim architecture. This gives the home an elegant sophistication that is very unique and certainly very Costarican. Carefully nestled in the rain forest atop a high ridge line * at 300 feet above sea level gives an almost 180 degree view of the surrounding rain forest, the Diquis river valley and three distinct mountain ranges in the distance. The climate is fresh with a mix of cool Pacific mountain and ocean air that circulates throughout the house and grounds. The yearly daily average temperature at the house is 85 degrees and the evenings are normally a pleasant 70-74 making it perfect for sleeping! Given the remote location of the home, we are 100% off the gird and solely relying on solar energy as the sole provider of our power. Having said that, we have made every effort to assure that our guest will be as comfortable as possible making sure that you never feel as though you are roughing it! We rely on 9 large ceiling fans and the design and the location of the house to keep our guest cool. All rooms in this luxury home are fully screened allowing sun light and cool breezes to fill the interior but keeping the unwanted guest out. Directly behind the house you will find a well-manicured trail that leads you to a small, private, waterfall and swimming hole only a 10 min walk away. The amenities of the home include two bedrooms with two attached full bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, inside dining room, bar, living room with queen size futon and 800 ft2 of covered deck. The first bedroom features a queen size bed, large armoire and a 180 degree view of the rain forest, the surrounding tropical landscape and river valley below.

Most of these tours are given at no additional charge to our guest with their paid rental. When you come and visit us, included is a full time guide and housekeeper whose sole job is to make your vacation the most memorable, stress free, work free as possible any way that they can. They will give you private guided tours, carry your grocery bags, take you river fishing, clean the house, find fresh fruit, do your dishes and even get you a fresh coconut to drink at the beach. We have over 10 miles of hiking trails along with several kayaking trails that our resident onsite guide will personally guide you on, day or night, along the way pointing out hard to see wildlife that you would normally miss and introducing you to interesting flora and fauna. If you would like to go on a night tour, no problem, if you want to go to a rain forest waterfall, no problem, how about getting you some wild cilantro from the forest for that fresh Ceviche you’re going to make, they can do that to. Would you like to explore the Sierpe River and her tributaries by Kayak? Kayaks are on site for our guests to use at any time. And lastly, how can a vacation along one of the world’s most beautiful river’s be truly memorable without being able to experience the natural beauty and wonders of that river without having access to a boat? Included in your rental fee we will provide you with unlimited use of a 20’ boat for use on the river and a captain to drive it, you’re only responsible for the gas that you use! Simply sit back, relax let the captain do the driving and embark on a one of countless river adventures from a lazy sunset float with cocktail in hand to bird watching and of course river fishing. How does fresh snapper sound for dinner? Also have I mentioned that we have one of the most amazing, private and secluded beaches in the area and only a 15 min boat ride away? So how about a barefoot adventure on a pristine secluded beach? There are many other tours available at additional cost by independent tour operators that will pick you up directly either from the house or from our private river dock for any of the following; Horseback riding through the rain forest, tour of Corcovado National Park, Cano Island is directly off the coast offering the best snorkeling and diving in all of Costa Rica, World Class Sport Fishing less than 10 miles out, whale watching and many more tours guaranteeing to indulge your every whim with any array of Pacific Coast or rain forest pastimes * The house is located on a high ridge line giving it amazing views and cool breezes but it also means that you have the equivalent of a few blocks walk from the dock to the house and involves a short but relatively steep hill at the end. Don’t worry we will transport your luggage and supplies for you. Guest considering Casa Rio Sierpe should be somewhat physically fit and who are adventurous & enjoy the outdoors. *Travel times on the river by boat are estimates and will vary slightly depending the load & how much wildlife we stop to look at along the way
