  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    The volunteer will stay in a private room with shared bathroom.
    There is a shared kitchen and free Wifi (available just in the hostel not by the finca).
    The kitchen has everything you need, you only need to bring your food.
    In Drake Bay super market is a litle bit more expensive so, i recomend you to by your food before you came here (in Palmar). Also you need to bring cash because there's no ATM and lots of places don't accept card.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Drake Bay is very closed to Corcovado National Park and to the Caño Island for diving and snorkelling lovers.
    During your free time you can also go for hiking or discover wild and uncontaminated beaches.
    The hostel is just 5 minutes walking to the beach and there are 2 small shops where you can find food.
    (Please keep in mind there is no ATM in the village, the nearest one available is in Puerto Jimenez or Palmar Norte).
