Directions to Rio Drake Farm
Map & Directions
Rio Drake Farm is located in the south of Costa Rica, in the Osa Peninsula next to the beach and airstrip of Drake Bay. You can access us by plane, boat, bus or car. Below you find the route descriptions.
By plane: This is the easiest and fastest way to Drake Bay. Sansa and Nature Air have daily flights from San Jose to Drake Bay. We recommend Sansa that flies from the International Airport Juan Santamaria directly to Drake Bay. Please let us know about your arrival time and we will pick you up by car (free service).
By bus and boat: Go by bus (TRACOPA) at 5 a.m. from San Jose (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 a.m. to Drake Bay. There is another boat at 3:30 p.m., but we recommend to take the first one because it is cheaper and you arrive by day. Please let us know about your arrival time and we pick you up by car (free service).
By bus (only Monday-Saturday): Take a Bus from San Jose (TRACOPA) to the South of Costa Rica and change at Chacarita to the Bus to Jimenez (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.). If you come from La Palma, take the bus at 11:30 a.m. or 4:30 p.m. to Drake Bay. Ask the driver to let you out at the entrance of the airport. Please let us know before about your arrival time so we can pick you up by car from the bus station (free service).
By car: Follow the Interamericana to the south of Costa Rica until Chacarita. There turn right and follow the street until Rincon where you turn right again, following the sign to Drake Bay. In El Progreso, follow our sign to the right until the airport. Pass the gate and drive on the left side of the airstrip where you find us at the end. We strongly recommend 4x4.
