OK, our Drake Bay stay was our favorite place to visit during our two week stay. The Monkey Lodge was disappointing for birds and animals in the lodge yard, probably due to the heavy rain in the area for the last several weeks, but the lodge itself was SO nice with lots of beautiful wood and we LOVED the balconies over the yard in the back and the hammocks! We took the Mangrove tour and a bird tour with Neyer and saw about 50 birds in the two tours, many on the road near the lodge. There is a little grocery store walking distance from the lodge. Kim did a wonderful job of arranging tours and answering our endless questions. She also did a great job of making sure we were met our guides and provided all transportation. She and Neyer even borrowed boots for us to use and had them delivered to the lodge for us! It was an overall outstanding visit in Drake Bay despite the rain (it was high rainy season). My 83-yr old Mom says the very best part for her was the thrilling ride in the boat crossing the waves at the mouth of the river where it meets the ocean.
Property was just like the pictures, the surroundings were beyond our expectations, even though it rained some in the late afternoons, it was still a beautiful memorable stay! I must tell you, our hosts WERE AMAZING and made our stay that much more wonderful. They greeted us at the entrance of the finca and their warm welcome made us feel just at home! Will forever remember our stay at Finca Manglar
