My wife and I visited this quite and relaxing beach. It is great for snorkeling on a low tide day. We were there the first week of October and there was very few people there.

Almost a private beach for the W hotel guests, as it is difficult for the general public to reach there. Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Great place for horseback riding, swimming, massages, lounging.

Playa Conchal is the most beautiful beach in the Guanacaste Region. The sand is made of crushed seashells so it is very white. The water is bluish so it feels like you are in Cancun. The beach gets crowded on the weekends so try to...More

Don't come here! It's all mine! Yes, it is the best beach in CR, but access to the best part is difficult unless you're willing to walk a long distance or drive to the parking lot in Puerto Viejo. The general public access is fine...More

Ever seen something like this. It is mixture of Seychelles and Mauritius. Beach and green mountains. Rocks far in the ocean. Colour of the water differs with lot of shadows!

Very nice beach with white sand (actually tiny sea shells) and crystal clear water. More secluded away from Westin (Puerto Viejo). A couple of great snorkeling spots. You will have to travel about 3 miles on a dirt road from Matapalo, but it is worth...More

Pretty good beach for snorkeling. A 5 minute walk south from the parking lot leads you to a nice beach behind an outcropping of rocks where you can swim or snorkel. There seemed to be a lot of locals there on a Sunday. It looks...More
