Find us in


Our installations are built on the top of a hill overlooking Drake Bay, which is named for the legendary pirate, Sir Francis Drake, who according to history buried treasure here. For us, the true treasures are the beautiful beaches and the natural resources of the Corcovado National Park and the amazing marine life of Caņo Island, both located close to Drake Bay on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.

El Mirador is the perfect place to spend your vacation in touch with the rainforest and yet very close to the beach. Our hilltop location is in Drake Bay, but away from the hustle and bustle of the town and with a panoramic view of the bay and a great lookout area ready and waiting with hammocks! According to Lonely Planet, Mirador has one of the best views of the sunset in the country, second only to Chirripo!

We have 3 hectares of land and 200 meters of beach front for swimming and exploring. Corcovado National Park is located 8 miles south and Caņo Island is 12 miles west of Drake Bay.


Our hotel has very pleasant rooms designed especially to make your stay with us the most comfortable possible. Each room has its own private bath. We also offer free parking at the hotel. You can enjoy the fresh sea breeze and the beach is only 100 meters away from the hotel. You will fall asleep to the sound of the breaking waves and awaken to the early morning sounds of the surrounding wildlife.

In addition to the excellent view, we also include three delicious home-style meals carefully prepared by our cooking staff and can accommodate special diets. We also offer all tours in the area, and you can find more information in our Eco- Activities.
