Experience pure nature at a small ecofarm/hotel in a very natural place in Drake Bay of the Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica. Enjoy the pura vida feeling in one of our hammocks under a traditional palm leaf roof looking at the lagoon, beach, sea and caño island or observing animals as hummingbirds, kingfishers, river turtles, otters and many more.

We organize for you any tour you wish to do, as hiking in the corcovado national park, snorkeling at caño islands biological reserve, horseback riding at the beach, bird watching, poisonous dart frog watching, crocodile tour and more. Or enjoy the 4km lonely beach in front, go hiking to a mangrove river or try your fishing luck!

We are situated next to the Drake Bay Airport, so it is really easy to get here by plane from San José (Sansa).

By plane: The easiest and fastest way to Drake Bay is by plane (Sansa and Nature Air). We recommend Sansa that flies from the International Airport Juan Santamaria directly to Drake Bay. Please let us know about your arrival and you get a free pick up service from the airport.

By bus and boat: Go by bus at 5 a.m. from San José (TRACOPA, about 6 hours) at or 7 a.m. from Neily (if you come from Panama) to Palmar Norte. There, take a collective taxi to Sierpe and then a boat at 11:30 to Drake Bay. There is another boat at 3:30 p.m., but we recommend to take the earlier whenever possible, it is cheaper and you arrive by day. Please let us know about your arrival and you get a free pick up service from the boat station.

By bus (Monday to Saturday): Take a bus from San José (TRACOPA) to the south of Costa Rica and change at Chacarita to the bus to Jiménez (3 p.m.). If you come from Panama, take the bus at 2 p.m. from Neily to Puerto Jimenez. Get out in Rincon (before the bridge) and change to the bus to Drake Bay (4:45 p.m.). Ask the driver to let you out at the entrance of the airport. Please let us know about your arrival and you will get a free pick up service from the bus station.

By car: Follow the Interamericana to the south of Costa Rica until the gasoline station in Chacarita. There turn right and follow the street until you pass Rincon where you turn right again (before the bridge). After about one hour driving along a gravel road through farmland and forest you arrive in El Progreso. There follow our sign to the right until the airport where you pass through the gait and follow the airstrip at the left where you will find us at the end. We strongly recommend 4×4.

Located Near

Rio Drake Farm is situated in the South of Costa Rica, in the Pennsula de Osa, with front to the beach.

We are at 2km from the village El Progreso and at 5km from the village Agujitas. In El Progreso you can find two little stores, a bar and pre-Columbian stone balls. Our Farm is located between forest, the lagoon of the Rio Drake and the air strip of Drake Bay. The lonely beach of Drake is very close (at 200m) and from our dining platform you can see the Cao Island and beautiful sunsets.
