If you will be arriving to Drake Bay from San Jose, there are two ways to travel by air or by land. The easiest way of arriving to Drake Bay is by taking a flight from San Jose to Drake Bay. There are two airlines that make this flight; SANSA Airlines and Nature Air. The flight costs about $150 each way per person. You can also take a bus to Palmar Norte, where we will pick you up in a taxi and bring you to the town of Sierpe. In Sierpe we will have a boat waiting that will bring you to Drake Bay. It takes 4 1/2 hours by bus to Palmar, 15 min in taxi to Sierpe, and 1 hour by boat to Drake. It costs about $10 for the bus, and $35/person from Palmar to Drake. There is also a private shuttle that I can reserve for you that would pick you up at your hotel in San Jose and bring you directly to Sierpe where you will catch the boat for $85/person. You can also rent a car and drive to Sierpe. From San Jose the drive takes about 5 hours and you need to keep in mind that there are two times the taxi boat departs Sierpe. Once at 11:30am and again at 3:30pm. You can also drive directly to Drake Bay as well. However you must have a good 4x4 and a keen sense of adventure as the road to Drake is only passable during the dry season due to several rivers that you must cross to get there. You can see all this on our website.
If you will be in another location and traveling to Drake Bay please let me know and I will suggest other ways of traveling to the hotel.
