Hi Katja,

You can usually take a 4x4 taxi out of Drake Bay.

From Drake Bay, there is a bus to the town of La Palma.

In the rainy season the local bus leaves Aguajitas (Drake Bay Center) at 5am and will pick you up along the main road. The bus returns from La Palma for Drake at 11:30am.

If there is a big rain that causes the Rio Drake to fill quickly (which can happen in big rains all of a sudden in rainy season) the bus will be cancelled until it can cross the river. In case of bad weather, check with your lodge for more details.

In the dry season, the bus travels twice a day to La Palma, at 5am and at 1pm. It returns from La Palma to Drake at 11:30am and again at 4pm.

Hope this helps,

Pura Vida, Ballardo
