The best location for a hotel at Drake Bay was selected by Drake Bay Resort on a point of land at sea level. The cabins were built facing the ocean with the jungle river at your back door. There is excellent swimming and kayaking just steps from your cabin, as well as many hiking trails ranging from easy to challenging, and miles of beaches for jogging. Drake Bay Resort was the first and original hotel in Drake Bay. The cabins have comfortable rooms including queen, double, and single beds, private tile bath rooms, hot showers, ceiling fans, reading lamps, 24 hour electricity, and a front porch for relaxing after a busy day.
The river allows easy boat landing at the dock rather than a beach landing.
