Something not right?

Description

The camping spot is right at the end of the street (on the right hand side). The street here is only doable with a 4x4 at least if you are not a local (these guys do crazy things with normal cars). The river you have to cross was at least knee deep (during rain season). Once you are here you get a paradise beach all for yourself with perfect sunset and camping on green gras right next to the beach. About 20min walks down the beach is a restaurant and hostel where you can get something to eat. The place is perfect for small tents and also for big rigs. Also there are open showers like 10min down the beach.

One of our favorite wild camping spots in Costa Rica. We shared the beach with two other small rigs our first night and had it to ourselves our second night. No problem with the river crossings in our small Suzuki Jimny 4x4. Meals & cold showers available at Life for Life Hostel about one mile up the beach along Drake Bay Trail. You can arrange pickup/dropoff by boat at the campsite for Cano Island and Corcovado tours.

This “end of the road” beach is the perfect spot to camp and hike the Drake Bay Trail to both sides. You can hike north all the way to Drake and back in one day and south to Jaguar Lodge with lots of special wildlife.
Place for multiple big rigs, but maybe you have to wait till the locals are gone. Very quiet at night and unbelievable sunsets.
We made it with an Overlander truck, 3.5m high and 8m long without any problem. 3 river crossings to get here, 4x4 with offroad tires and sufficient clearance necessary.
Stayed 4 days without any problems, only the usual sand flies.

Great place with a hiking trail nearby. Calm for swimming
Cold shower and a toilet at a school nearby
No cell coverage and many tiny bugs that are me alive. Bring lots of bug spray

Nice spot on the grass. 3 spots available, expect to share because this place is well known. Not much insects. Beware we saw stingrays in the shallow water.

Road from Drake to get here is good, but we had to cross 3 rivers. You only need to do the first river if you're higher than 2.8 meters, but it's a wide river. At this date the water was only 30cm.
The camp spot is very nice, safe and quiet. The school nearby has toilets which you can use for 300 colones. Hiking trails to Corcovado on the beach, but you need a guide to get in the park. Free trails are still 3-4 hours of hiking and tons of animals to see. Coconuts on the beach to refresh after a hike. Since it is all jungle around expect some insects.

Amazing place, super nice swimming in ocean. Beaches are sooo pretty. But the road to there is super bumpy and 2 or 3 river crossings, so 4x4 needed.

very stunning place but busier than expected. there are some lodges ducked away along the beach and the main activity of all tourists is to walk along the beach as there is a path leading into the rain forest. a Frenchman just passed by carrying an enormous fish which he pulled out of the sea. he was totally taken as two pumas crossed his path while a big whale on the other side showed up.

As described, absolutely epic place.
River was knee deep for us as well, solid ground.
Higher rigs (+2,5-2,7m) need to do an extra river crossing, which looked not frequently used, no idea on the depth.

The hostal 700m to the right, where you can eat (quite expensive) is also a turtle Sanctuary. You can ask if there is a nest hatching and join the release.
