    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).
