Pirate Cove is a small hotel, consisting of comfortable cabins and bungalows, located on the Osa Peninsula, the least developed and most bio-diverse area of Costa Rica.
Its 3 cabins and 4 bungalows have great ocean and river views and are hidden among rainforest trees. The hotel is a few meters of the beach (those who like deserted beaches will be able to enjoy about 2-3 kilometers of beach).
- This is an authentic lodge. No TV, no easy internet access, no 24 hours bar.
- Great place to take a PADI scuba diving course.
- A middle budget option in the Corcovado area. It is a very good choice for nature lovers or bird watchers visiting the area in order to appreciate its marvelous natural beauty.
- Active people will not be bored here, and those wishing to relax will be able to appreciate the calm, quiet atmosphere of this lodge.
- Good option for the traveler looking for a rustic yet comfortable option in this area.
Pirates Cove is also highly praised for the European-Costa Rican style cuisine, homemade breads and deserts. A typical dinner taken in the main dining room consists of salad (with home-made dressing), a main course of perhaps fish steamed in coconut and banana leaves, yucca, potatoes or rice, and local vegetables, and a dessert of fruit salad. Vegetarian meals are also available.
Pirate Cove is a PADI International Resort Association member, offering first class diving at Isla del Caño. The following activities are also on offer: guided tours to Corcovado National Park, snorkeling tours and special packages for families. Guests have free use of kayaks in order to explore the Pacific Ocean.
The Bungalows are made of a very sturdy fabric, and each has a door and screened windows. Inside, the floors are polished wood, two of the bungalows have one double bed and 2 single beds and the other two have one double bed and one single bed. Outside, there are small balconies with hammocks directly overlooking the beach.
The Bungalows slightly cooler than the cabins during our dry season (January-April).
In the process of implementing the CST
The Certification for Sustainable Tourism Program – CST – is a product of the Costa Rican Tourism Board and it is regulated by the Costa Rican National Accreditation Commission. The certification is based on an accreditation of a scale of 5 “levels” of sustainable tourism achievement.
CST gives you reliable information regarding companies that make efforts to improve their management and operations to offer a sustainable product. It is also a good tool to differentiate those companies that are truly engaged with sustainable practices, from others that claim to be sustainable but are inconsistent in their actions.
PRICES: The range of prices scale is based on the following criteria: $ Refers to Budget accommodation: ranging from $70-100 $$ Medium: $100 – 150 $$$ Upscale: $150 – 200 $$$$ Premium: $200+
These measures are meant to be used as a reference only and they are calculated on double occupancy, standard room, quoted in U.S. Dollars and include a 13% sales tax; on both high and low seasons.
You can always refer to these prices as selection criteria.
