We organize the Violin Island Tour for you, so you can have peace of mind during your stay at Drake Bay Getaway.

Violin Island is located north of the Rio Sierpe, about an hour boat ride from Drake Bay. This untouched wilderness has spectacular mountains, deserted beaches, wetlands, and diverse wildlife.

The tour begins on the beach and includes a hike through rustic jungle trails and the opportunity to see crocodiles, caimans, monkeys and a huge variety of birds such as herons, egrets, osprey, scarlet macaws and toucans.

Violin Island is part of the Térraba-Sierpe mangrove forest park and is surrounded by huge, winding mangrove forest channels which have countless species of fish and incredible tropical plant life.

Whales and dolphins can also be spotted on this tour and there is even a jaguar rumoured to be living in the jungle-covered hills.

Things to Note:
Boat rides are 'wet landings' and can be bumpy.
Wildlife spotting depends on weather and other conditions.
Minimum 4 people.
