Drake Bay Attractions

Pockets of onyx-colored sand beaches, protruding vegetation and rocky crags squirrel away between the Pacific swells and the coastline from Drake Bay to Corcovado National Park.

Hike south on the coastal trail to discover unspoiled beautiful beaches. Or, boat on a tour 45 minutes to Caño Island, 30 minutes to San Pedrillo Ranger Station, or an hour to Sirena Ranger Station and explore what Corcovado National Park.


San Pedrillo Waterfalls

This set of three falls can be reached via a steep, hour-long trail at the San Pedrillo Ranger Station. The largest of the trio is about 80 feet tall. A cold swimming hole provides a nice respite from the Costa Rican heat.

La Llorona Waterfall

An enormous 100-foot waterfall marks the end of the Las Marias Trail from Corcovado’s Sirena Station. This inviting cascade can be seen from the boat ride to and from the park.

Rio Agujitas Waterfall

The Rio Agujitas Waterfall is about a two and a half hour canoe or kayak trip from Drake Bay. There are a number of excellent swimming holes along the way.  The falls are 65 feet high, and an excellent place to find poison dart frogs, monkeys and many species of birds. 

The Don Petrona Waterfalls

Located on  private property, these falls are only accessible with a guide.
