The cove is accessible by boat only a short 5 minute boat ride from the town of Drake Bay, There are no roads!
The beach is protected by a large volcanic rock outcropping on the west side. It helps to block the the ocean swells which keep the cove calm and allows for easy boat landing on the beach as well as fantastic snorkeling. Caletas Cove is also the perfect spot for your own private boat to be moored. The property has some semi cleared areas on small hill tops that would be perfect for construction. Surrounded by thick rain forest on three sides with more clearing in the direction of the ocean. The property lies 200 ft above sea level and approx. 300 yards from the beach. On the beach is a new resort hotel named the " Treetop Resort " which is currently under construction and scheduled to open November 2010.
