How to get here

Two companies fly directly from Costa Rica’s Central Valley to Drake Bay: Nature Air (www.natureair.com) and Sansa Airlines (www.sansacostarica.com).  The transfer from the airstrip to the hotel costs $8 per person. We are happy to organize it for you.

This is the most recommended way to come to Drake Bay, since it is a tour in itself. The one-hour ride along the Sierpe river and its mangrove forest is just outstanding!

Boats leave from Las Vegas restaurant in Sierpe at 11:30am and 3:30pm. The morning boat costs $15 per person, per way and, the afternoon boat costs $20 per person, per way.

Once you have arrived in Drake Bay, we will meet you at the beach to bring you to the hotel.

As an important detail, we advise you to wear sandals or water shoes since your arrival will be a wet landing.

Please, contact us for assistance on how to get to Sierpe and to book your boat transfer.

From San José, we recommend that you take the new Costanera Highway, along the coast by Quepos and Dominical to Palmar Norte. Then continue along the Pan-Americana highway until Chacarita, turn right into the Osa Peninsula and follow the signs to Rincón de Osa. There, turn West (right) onto the unpaved mountain road and follow the signs to Drake Bay. Once on the unpaved mountain road, adventure begins: you will find yourself passing through mountains, narrow pathways, rivers, and enjoying some fantastic jungle views. Continue on this road until you reach Agujitas Village, which is the main town of Drake Bay. We are located 300 meters from the beach, on the main road, on your left hand side. Our hotel coordinates are:


Latitud: 8.689926 (8º 41′ 23.74″ N)

Longitud: -83.664992 (83º 39′ 53.97″ W)


We highly recommend that you attempt this drive with a 4WD vehicle, only during the day and in dry season (December – April). During the wet season, rivers along the road are hardly passable.

take the bus from Puerto Jimenez to La Palma. From La Palma, a local bus leaves for Drake Bay at 11.30am and 4:45pm. The journey takes around two hours and it’s a bumpy, but beautiful Tico experience! This bus will drop you off right in front of our hotel. Tell the driver you are coming to Cabinas Murillo.

The bus service is subject to change, so please contact us before departing.
