We stumbled upon the farm on hostel world and decided to give it a try. Before arriving, I was able to email with Sabrina to find out more about Drake bay and to finalize plans and transportation needs, as it can be a little tricky. Sabrina was very helpful and quick to respond. Upon arriving to Drake bay, Edu picked us up, (not knowing that it was located at the end of the runway). Both Edu and Sabrina were very nice and willing to help us enjoy our stay as much as possible. Meals could be purchased and Sabrina was a very good cook. the rooms and bathrooms were very well maintained. there were hammocks for guests to enjoy the views and to relax. The beach was a quick walk away. there is very little electricity so i would recommend bringing flashlights or headlamps. they can also arrange excursions such as snorkeling, the bug lady and trips to Corcovado national park.
the farm is secluded and very low key. it is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the pura vida!
