The coastal town of Drake Bay and it’s perfect half-moon beach, which sit just minutes from Isla de Caño, the Sierpe River, and Corcovado National Park, are considered one of the most inaccessible places in the entire country.
Originally discovered by Sir Francis Drake in 1579, today Drake is home to several excellent eco lodges offering tours to the San Josecito or La Sirena ranger stations to explore the tallest primary rainforest on the planet. A dive or scuba trip to the biological reserve of Isla del Caño will unveil brightly colored tropical fish, nurse sharks, sea turtles and dolphins. Coastal trails leading south from Drake take you past foaming surf and shrieking macaws, to explore the region’s abundant wild beauty on your own. While you’re here, be sure to pay a visit to our Nature Kids School on the road from the airport to the town. Book Your Flight to Drake Bay Today!
