Rio Drake Farm is a place of Real Escapism. It has 2 very nice owners who looked after me and my wife very well. The owners, Sebrina & Edu, book the tours for you then drop you off and pick you up so that everything is very convenient. The food is very healthy and well prepared and the layout of... More

This lovely hostel had just the pura vida I was looking for when I traveled to Costa Rica: No electricity, no internet, no traffic, a tiny village in 15 minutes walking distance, pure nature with animal sounds around and adventurous trails through the forest to lonely beaches and last but not least a charming couple who is running the hostel....

Far away from civilisation: no electricity, no tv, no wifi. It's the perfect place for the nature lovers. You wake up in the morning with the sounds of the monkeys :), close to the beach, forest, laguna, ... . A good base camp for corcovado trip.

I was visiting the Rio Drake Farm for a two nights stay. It was an amazing experience and I would definetely go back again when visiting Peninsula de Osa in Costa Rica. The most special thing about it is that the Rio Drake Farm is located at the beach in the middle of the nature 20min outside of the little... More

We stumbled upon the farm on hostel world and decided to give it a try. Before arriving, I was able to email with Sabrina to find out more about Drake bay and to finalize plans and transportation needs, as it can be a little tricky. Sabrina was very helpful and quick to respond. Upon arriving to Drake bay, Edu picked... More

I had the pleasure of staying at Rio Drake Farm in January 2014, and found it to be a well kept secret with many beautiful surprises. The rooms are clean, hammocks are plentiful, and the food was delicious. It's a very low-key spot to truly get away and enjoy nature. Transportation is a bit tricky, but Edu and Sabrina are... More

I stayed for 3 nights in the dormitory and I had a great time. Rio Drake Farm is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the beautiful aspects of nature close to the place where you sleep. During my stay I saw turtles, caymans, a crocodile, macaws, a snake, toucans and a lot of birds and reptiles close to the... More

We stayed at Rio Drake Farm for 5 nights during our CR trip and we loved every single day! The cozy huts, the hammocks, the sunsets, the walks through the jungle during which we were accompanied by white-face and howler monkeys and aras, the miles long beaches all for ourselves... There is no hot water and only limited electricity which,... More

We found Sabrina and Edu great hosts and now consider them friends. The rooms were rustic but clean and were cleaned every day by Sabrina. Cool water showers were quickly adjusted to and felt so good at the end of a hot, humid day. The food was simple but amazing. Sabrina and edu cook up local delights with a lot... More
