We can meet you at the beach if you arrive by boat from Sierpe. You can also fly in to the nearby Drake Airport on either Sansa Airlines or Nature Air Airlines. In the rainy season it is very difficult, if not impossible, to drive to Drake because of steep mountain roads and a river to ford. From late December to late August driving to Drake is possible, a 4X4 is best. The last gas station is at Chacarita, where you turn off the Interamerican Highway. It is best if you call ahead for road conditions. Secure off street parking is available. We'll get you settled and we will explain the layout of the town and options for local tours etc. We are always in the next house in case you need something or for an emergency.
Bahia Drake is a small village. No Starbucks, no traffic, and no worries.
Drake Bay is on the national power grid and electricity is reliable but occasionally there is a power outage. If you use a c-pap machine or another medical devise that requires electricity it would be advisable to carry a backup battery unit. This would be good advice for traveling anywhere in Central America.
There are no banks or ATMs, so plan accordingly!!
There are 8 small restaurants and 2 small super markets within walking distance. Offering typical Costa Rican fare, seafood, pizza, chicken, etc.
