You need to pass four streams between Rincón and El Progreso (although it is not necessary to cross the big river “Rio Drake” to get to Rio Drake Farm). In raining season, we recommend to plan your arrival around midday or in the early afternoon in order to avoid possible heavy afternoon rain falls complicating the access due to rising rivers.

There you turn right in the direction to Drake (gravel road). Follow the road until the little village El Progreso. El Progreso is before the big river “Rio Drake” and before the center of Drake (which is also called Agujitas). In Progreso, follow our sign to the right to Rio Drake Farm /Drake Airport. Follow the signs along the little road parallel to the runway until our parking area. From Neily: Drive on the Interamericana north until Chacarita (last gasoline station before Drake Bay), there turn left in the direction to direction to Puerto Jiménez / Bahía Drake and follow this street until Rincón before the bridge.
