Those travelers seeking a bit of seclusion during their trip to South Puntarenas can venture to Drake Bay, which offers scenic coastline and plenty of activities to enjoy. Sport fishing, kayaking, snorkeling and many more. Drake Bay is one of the two main entrances to the Corcovado National Park, Home to a sprawling 23 miles of golden shoreline, several hiking trails and 13 major ecosystems, Corcovado National Park is one of South Puntarenas’ finest. Considered to be the crown jewel of Costa Rica’s park system, Corcovado is the country’s largest park and stretches across 103,290 acres – nearly a third of the Osa Peninsula. This park is called “the most biologically intense place on Earth” by National Geographic. From Drake Bay you can also get to Caño Island which sits 20 kilometers offshore from Drake Bay. Caño Island serves as a biological reserve and important archaeological locale. The island protects artifacts from pre-Columbian times, including the mysterious spherical stones, which scientists are unaware of their origin. There are five diving sites around this island, which feature manta rays, Olive Ridley sea turtles, dolphins and both Humpback and Pilot whales and of course many different species of tropical fish.
