Jinetes and Drake Bay were absolutely amazing! I was looking for a stress free vacation and found exactly that.
The staff was incredible, everything is arranged for you. Every evening Victor asks what you would like to do the next day, then arranges it all...More
just getting to Drake Bay was an experience in itself.
You can only get there by boat or plane so we took the boat there and plane back to San Jose.
The packed speed boat took around an hour to reach Drake Bay and gave...More
Note that if you are traveling to Drake Bay by boat, you will get wet. Wear water shoes or be prepared to take off your shoes as you are ‘docking’ (note that docking simply means backing the boat into the shore as the co-captain jumps...More

They bring the horses to the hotel and you head out. The ride is guided, through town and some back roads that take you to the river. There is a spot to stop and walk into the waterfall. Total time is appropriate 3 hours. You cannot hike on Cano Island. You can swim, dive or snorkel. A guide leads you. There are lovely beaches nearby the hotel. You have approx 20 minute walk through the jungle. You can rent kayaks nearby. There are lots of hikes. The hotel staff can help you with everything. They are great!

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.
