Following activities are offered at no cost:

Canoe use

Use our canoe and discover the tranquility of Rio Drake, its lagoon and streems on your own. You may see many different water birds, monkeys, turtles and sometimes caimans or crocodiles.

Trails / Hiking

  • Bamboo Trail

The bamboo trail goes along a stream and through the forest on our property. It is about 1km. You can see  bamboos, huge wild cashew trees, jesus christ lizards and sometimes water birds, otters, turtles, snakes or other animals.

  • Monkey Trail

The monkey trail leads also through forest and to a stream. It is about 700m length. It is often possible to see white-faced capuchine monkeys and sometimes howler monkeys when walking on this trail.

  • Hike to the Mangrove

The mangrove offers a very special hidden beach: There are no waves. It can be reached by walking along the beach and climbing over the rocks at low tide or following a little street through farmland and the Golfo Dulce forest reserve over a mountain with a stunning view. You can get there in about 1,5 hour by foot (one way). On the way you may see monkeys, scarlet macaws or toucans.

  • Hike to Agujitas

Visit the center town of Drake Bay for an ice cream or lunch and walk along the deserted beach of Drake Bay (about 1 hour). You can also walk back along the street (1,5h) or take the bus or taxi for coming back.

  • Hike to San Josecito Beach

The hike to San Josecito is most of the time along beaches and little bays where you can see wildlife, too. San Josectio beach is very remote and it takes 3,5hours at least (one way).

Swimming

A lonely sandy beach invites you for swimming and sunbathing. There are no dangerous currents in the bay. However, sometimes, depending the weather and conditions of the ocean, there can be big waves. Usually, at 300m left from Rio Drake lagoon, it is always calm enough to swim. For children, we recommend visiting the mangrove beach with no waves.
