Sierpe River Camp provides you with your own private room out in the true Costa Rican wilderness. Many kilometers away from any type of civilization, this is truly a camp, yet one that provides you with basic comforts that are sure to make your stay hassle free, relaxing, and still full of adventure. We're located directly on the edge of the Sierpe river, with a rainforest behind the property, and the Pacific Ocean just a 5 minute boat ride away.

The space
First, you should know that this is a project that I, Carlos, a born and raised Sierpe native, recently started. This is not some big well-oiled eco-cabin machine, but rather one man with some help from family and friends that is trying to start something truly authentic and unique. For the time being, there are only two private rooms, this being one of them, so you can be assured that you'll essentially have the property to yourself, minus myself and a helper or two.

Sierpe River Camp truly is a camp in the sense that it is an escape out into nature, away from the noise and the busyness of the outside world. Might we mention that our escape out into nature is among the most beautiful, pristine, and secluded in the entire region? Even in Costa Rica, it isn't easy to find a place that's completely off the grid, far away from civilization, but we're just that. For heavens sakes, there aren't even roads to the property! You need to get on a boat just to get there (see more info on obtaining that boat transportation below).

We promise that you can't stay any closer to the river than you can with us: its about 5-10 steps steps from the door of your room to water's edge. This isn't just any old river either, but the Sierpe river (a quick image search will show you some of the majesty that awaits you here). The Sierpe river hosts the biggest wetlands and mangrove system in all of Costa Rica, and one of the biggest in Central America. Of course, this brings with it gobs of wild life, including: 3 different species of monkeys, sloths, tons of bird species, crocodiles, and even sharks that use the area as a breeding ground! As if it weren't good enough to stay on the shore of such a life filled river, there are jungle covered hills backing up to the property. Being sandwiched right between jungle and river sets the perfect scene for an authentic Costa Rican wilderness adventure.

With the Pacific Ocean just a 5 minute boat ride away, and the largest wetlands and mangrove system right at our doorstep, there are limitless tour options. All of our tours are private, directly through us, leave right from the property, and include a professional guide (myself) and non-alcoholic drinks:
- Kayak tour through the surrounding mangroves
- 4 hour birdwatching tour by boat
- All day Caño Island with snorkeling (lunch included)
- All day Corcovado (San Pedrillo station and Sirena station, lunch included)
- 4 hour waterfall tour (lunch included)
- Mangrove and wildlife boat tour
- Mangrove, wildlife, and beach tour by boat (lunch included)
- Scuba diving (availability of diving spots depends on how far ahead of time you make the reservation. Please message me if interested to find out what we can offer you) (lunch included)
If you have something else in mind, just let us know, and we can plan your ideal personalized tour for your stay with us. Please contact us to get specific pricing info for your group, and any further information that you require.

Last but not least: food. We have a fully equipped kitchen, which you are more than welcome to use to cook your meals. Alternatively, we'd be more than happy to prepare native Costa Rican dishes for you at an additional charge. Here are our prices, per person, in USD:
Breakfast (coffee/juice included): $6
Lunch (drinks not included): $10
Dinner (drinks not included): $10

We offer an all inclusive and all encompassing escape out into nature here at Sierpe River Camp. Venturing into the Costa Rican wilderness doesn't have to be uncomfortable, a hassle, or wildly expensive. That's why we offer to take care of everything for you, at very affordable prices, so that you can focus on enjoying every moment of your authentic nature get away at Sierpe River Camp.

Guest access
You'll have access to the entire property, which includes a fully equipped kitchen, boat dock from which you can fish, and various common spaces where you can relax in a hammock. Your private room is yours alone, and is pulled back away from the common areas of the property, to ensure your privacy.

Other things to note
The property is on the edge of the Sierpe river with thick jungle behind it, and is many kilometers away from anything resembling a town. Therefore, it is only accessible by boat. There are two options for your boat transportation:

1) Taxi boat - Taxi boats (more like a bus than a taxi) leave twice a day from Drake Bay and twice a day from Sierpe. They are full of tourists traveling between the two towns, but you can also take one of these to get dropped off at the property. This is a cheaper option for individual travelers, but there are only two departure times per day, and they won't cater to the time you'd like to leave. They will also be full of other passengers, up to 25 people per boat, hence, it can get a little cramped, especially with luggage. Cost: $10 per person, one way.

2) Private transportation in my boat - I will pick you up in my boat, at the time you prefer, will take care of all of your luggage for you, and you'll have plenty of place to sit on your own private boat. I charge an extra fee for this service, but depending on the amount of people in your party, this may be a more economical option for you. Message me to coordinate your private transportation. Cost: (note that the costs are not per person, you are paying to rent out the entire boat for a one way trip) 1-2 people in a small boat: $50 one way. 3-6 people in a big boat: $90 one way.

If entering through the town of Sierpe, I have property at my boat dock where you can park your car for free.

Please contact me to coordinate the best transportation option for you.
