As I see it, this is the least touristy beach in this area. It neighbors Playa Conchal to the south and Playa Flamingo to the north. Both are hopping with tourists. Playa Brasilito is empty. It is a beautiful place to walk and or ride...More

Run-down, dirty beach with hypodermic needles and condoms lying around. Also has open drainage running directly into the ocean from a nearby shanty town. Pity it has so much potential. Avoid it for now.

A noisy, boisterous and untidy area; unlike anything we had seen in all of Costa Rica. Maybe OK for the locals, but definitely not for us. Nothing to recommend about this place. Drive 20 minutes south to Playa Grande and you'll be in another world.

I guess that when you go on holidays and the place you stayed at is not what you expected or is simply awful, you will not share it with your friends, on social media, blogs, etc. No, you'll pretend you had a good time! That's...More

Having been travelling around Costa Rica including visits to many of its totally undeveloped and stunning southern beaches, arrival at Brasilito was a shock! We certainly don't agree that this place has charm and a local feel. In fact, the whole place was a mess,...More

Playa Brasilito is a totally underrated beach. I found the waves excellent for body surfing and the beach quiet and untouristy. If you walk North on the beach there is a completely quiet area with a little island out front you can swim out to....More

We are staying in Brasilito as part of our honeymoon trip. We chose the area as it was described as 'local', which is what we want when we travel abroad...if we didn't, I don't see why we would bother travelling! So we arrived in Brasilito....More
