Drake Bay is situated on the northern side of the Osa Peninsula and while it’s a little more difficult to get to, its popularity can be attributed to being located just a short distance from Corcovado National Park. Our bay is surrounded by lowland tropical rainforest with minimal development and some of the most scenic spots are still only accessible by boat. The primary activity in our region is Ecotourism and at the hotels in Drake Bay you will find our Lodge, Aguila de Osa, where we provide a luxurious experience to guests from all over the world. Drake Bay is the ideal refuge for a vacation that is quiet and peaceful as well as for those seeking active adventure.
If you have a wanderlust for adventure travel and a desire to explore the best destination in Costa Rica, search no further. Our location is home to impressive lagoons and coves ideal for kayaking and nearby Caño Island is perfect for both snorkeling and scuba diving.
One of the wildest local attractions in Osa Peninsula are the sightings of a variety of dolphins as well as migrating whales. The whales come each season to give birth and raise their calf in our calm, warm and safe waters and let them grow and learn to swim for the migration back to either the Antarctic to the south or Alaska to the North. Whale sharks, mantas, turtles and four types of dolphins can be seen… great for the enthusiastic diver. Another marine adventure is Costa Rica sportfishing; right outside our bay with little fishing pressure gives us some of some of the best game fishing in the world!
Drake Bay is even a great place for off the beaten path surfing. There are a few locations nearby that you need to take a boat to get to but have awesome powerful waves that are perfect for experienced surfers.
Last but not least, while hiking in Corcovado National Park, you will be guided by local naturalist experts and see more than you could possibly ever imagine.
The Osa Peninsula also has miles of wild pristine beaches, decorated by the spectacular palms that grow along the shoreline. A perfect spot for when you want to take a break and relax under our tropical sunshine.
We invite you to experience a rainforest and marine adventure vacation in Costa Rica, and will be happy to create a vacation designed for your adventurous spirit!
