La Paloma is a small nature-oriented lodge located in Drake’s Bay, near Corcovado National Park. It is about an 6 hour trip via ground and boat transportation or a 40 minute flight from San Jose. Sitting on top of a cliff, the lodge is blessed by a refreshing sea breeze and a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean and Caño Island.

  • Great for birdwatchers, nature lovers and photographers.
  • Also for honeymooners that are into nature.
  • Lots of variety of sea life, not as much coral as on the Caribbean side, but more fish diversity around Cano Island.
  • Excellent option for clients looking for a sophisticated, secluded place to relax set in a natural tropical environment.
  • Not recommended for small children, as there are not many suitable activities available, and also due to the hotel’s quiet atmosphere.

Hotel facilities include a restaurant, bar, and swimming pool.

4 standard rooms with King size bed, private bathroom, balcony, A/C and have a splendid Ocean view.

7 deluxe ranchos (large thatched roofed cabins) that comfortably hold from 2 to 5 guests. These are two story rooms; on the upper floor is a king bed with a private bathroom while on the first floor guests can find one queen bed and one single sharing a bathroom.
