Playa San Josecito
A two-hour walk from Drake, Playa San Josecito is regarded as the most beautiful beach in the area. Facing west, the beach's sunsets are spectacular -- particularly during whale season, when the setting sun provides an unreal backdrop to these majestic creatures. Day trips to Playa San Josecito are popular, and some tours allow a stopover on the way to or from Corcovado National Park's San Pedrillo Biological Station. Offshore snorkeling, sunbathing, and relaxing underneath one of the area's many palm trees are San Josecito's main attractions.
