NEW WASHER AND DRYER TV AND CABLE We can coordinate taxi pickup from the airstrip if you fly in, or meet you at the beach if you take the boat from Sierpe all people who come by boat are supposed to use Alejio's boat as that is the one designated for Binya. In the rainy season it is very difficult, if not impossible, to drive to Drake because of steep mountain roads and a river to ford. From late December to late August driving to Drake is usually possible, a 4X4 is best. The last gas station is at Chacarita, where you turn off the Interamerican Highway. It is best if you call/email ahead for road conditions. Secure off street parking is available. We'll get you settled in and explain the layout of the town and options for local tours etc. We are always in the next house in case you need something or for an emergency. We can book all of the tours for you. Just send a message to Debra when you book. We just partnered with the Pelagic boat which is a multipurpose vessel capable of rough ocean conditions. We can take you scuba diving with Eric who is a PADI Instructor, sport fishing, on a whale and dolphin tour, mangrove tour, snorkeling, a sunset tour and just about anything you want to do we can arrange it. The boat has a restroom, GPS, Marine Radio, back up batteries, AED, Oxygen, First Aid, Depth/Fish finder, spare food and water. Bahia Drake is a small village. No Starbucks, no traffic, and no worries. There is also no bank or ATM, so plan accordingly!! You can use US dollars or Costa Rican Colones Your home is only steps to the beach, 4 mini markets and 10+ small restaurants. Help support the local economy of Drake Bay. Just tell me what you are interested in, Snorkel to Cano Island, Scuba, Night Tour, Day hike or overnight to Sirena, Waterfall hike, or just take a nice hike right from the house to a coastal jungle trail. If you require a c pap machine, bring extra an backup battery as there are frequent power outages in this location mostly during the rainy season.More
