Drake Bay Backpackers is an ideal hostel for travellers wanting to experience Costa Rica's natural beauty, culture and wildlife. The hostel is also the camp for the Corcovado Foundation's sea turtle program, offering the best chance of seeing nesting sea turtles in the area. During my stay the hostel on request organised activities such as snorkelling Isle De Cano, sea turtle patrols, horse back riding, fishing trips and transportation to near by towns, making it hassle free. Meals are available made from fresh local ingredients that are flexible to your preferences, or you can use the kitchen area to prepare your own meals. The hostel works for people traveling alone or in groups as there is a social atmosphere. I felt welcome as a friend rather than just a guest wether its socialising in the hammock area or going out for drinks and dancing at the local bar with locals, volunteers and other guests. The location is secluded but definitely worth the trip.
