Catching a boat from Sierpe to Drake

You can catch a boat taxi to Drake Bay at the Las Vegas shop/restaurant in Sierpe. Tickets are something like $15 per person but you might be able to cut a deal with your lodge (e.g., they pick you up for free). This is what we did. The boat ride takes about an hour and will take you through the jungle to the Pacific. At the mouth of the Sierpe is where the ride can get a little rough. I would advise bringing a wet bag or plastic bag for your backpack. Otherwise, make sure the captain stores your bag in a dry area. From the mouth of the river, you will cross Drake Bay, and head onwards if you decide not to stay in Drake.
