Drake Bay (Bahia Drake) is situated on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica, on the Peninsula de Osa. With lodges and hotels fitting perfectly into nature, you’ll find yourself in a beautiful, authentic, and unique village with friendly, welcoming people. A few shops and restaurants offer all you need here in the jungle, but bring enough cash. There is no bank and only a few places accept credit cards (We do!).

From Drake Bay you enter Corcovado National Park, which hosts half of the countries flora and fauna(!) as well as Caño Island Biological Reserve, one of the best places in Costa Rica for snorkeling and diving. But even around the village are lots of possibilities for nature activities-so don’t plan your stay too short!. The accommodations we offer should make you feel at home and our fully equipped kitchen is open for self-cooking. Free coffee and tea.
