Drake Bay

  • Drake Bay, Costa Rica
     Drake Bay, Costa Rica

Composed of rocky areas and coves of great scenic beauty, Drake Bay features very wet tropical forest due to its frequent rainfall, and rich biodiversity. Drake Bay is the starting point for sportfishing tours, diving/snorkelling trips to Caño Island, and boats to get to Corcovado National Park. Long beach walks and horseback riding are popular here, especially at Playa San Josecito at the bay’s southern end. Every year in February, the community celebrates the arrival of famous British explorer Sir Francis Drake, after whom the bay is named.
