Drake Bay


Drake Bay is the main getaway for those that wish to explore the Northern Corcovado National park. The small and enchanting bay got famous hundreds of years ago. It was used as a hideaway for pirates, including Sir Frances Drake, who, it is told, buried his treasures in the area and used it as a hideaway.

The small village in Drake Bay is called Agujitas. Most of the hotels and lodges are located in Drake Bay, or around the coastline. Drake Bay has its own airstrip, so clients can also fly from San Jose or other regions in Costa Rica.


Views

The majority of clients arrive via land through Sierpe. Once in Sierpe, our boat departs from Oleaje Sereno Restaurant at 11 AM and also, later at 3 PM. The boat ride from Sierpe to Drake Bay takes around 1 hour. It is very scenic since it will go through mangrove forests.
