Drake Bay is a large sweeping bay on the northwest of Osa Peninsula.
Drake Bay extends
south below the mouth of the Río Sierpe. The small village of Agujitas- home to the Drake Bay Tourist Information Office and airport- lies at the southern end of the bay, which is ideal for trips into Río Claro
National Wildlife Refuge (8 km) and Corcovado National Park (13 km
south), or to Caño Island.
Humpbacks and other whale species pass by close to
the shore. The southern end of the bay has good snorkeling.
Golden sand beaches lie farther south, ending at Playa
Josecito at the edge of Corcovado National Park.
You can fly to Drake Bay, on Nature Air (Airport in San Jose suburb Pavas), or Sansa Air, which is out of SJO.
Boats travel to Drake Bay from Sierpe. The trip takes 2 hours down the Río Sierpe.
