Drake's Bay gets its name from the famed Sir Frances Drake, the English pirate, who apparently hid some buried treasure near here...The bay was gorgeous. We camped in our tent, right in front of a resort/hotel called Rancho Corcovado, and were rained on slightly that night. We woke up to a stunning view of the bay, and a giant sailboat coming in to anchor. We hiked the trail into the jungle for a few hours, swam in the ocean a bit, then jumped on the 'bus' to Puerto Jimenez. More of a van really, and it was quite an experience. One of the tires wouldn't hold air, and we kept stopping to top off.
