With the tallest primary rainforest on the planet, the national forest in Abahia Drake is home to many endangered animal and bird species as well as a huge number of indigenous wildlife and flora.
From Drake Bay you can also visit the biological reserve of the isla del Caño which offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in Costa Rica. This tiny island has a wealth of underwater beauty, and gives tourists the opportunity to swim amidst beautiful brightly colored tropical fish and dolphins. Horseback rides are available in the area as well as some excellent sport fishing off the coast. Canoeing and kayaking trips can also be arranged.
