After PV ... Nicest Beaches in CR

My girlfriend and I are planning on coming to PV. The area sounds intriguing ... yet a little rough. We are OK with that ... there seems to be many great things to experience. We plan on staying about 4 or 5 days and then driving to another part of the country. We are in search of the finest beaches ... clear water ... beautiful sand ... beautiful views ... great snorkeling ... best weather. Can anyone recommend areas we should consider? So far we have heard Quepos/MA and Guanacaste are very nice. Your wise advise is greatly appreciated!

You will fall in love with the Carribean side of Costa Rica. The beaches are clean and beautiful, especially further down the coast to Cocles Beach, Punta Uva and Manzanillo. However, we loved the beach in front of Stanford's in Puerto Viejo - could watch the kids play soccer all day. Very mellow...

If you are looking for the best snorkeling, pristine and almost untouched Costa Rica, there is but 1 place. The OSA peninsula is where yo want to go. Couldn't be farther from you from PV though :(

Before I decided on living in Puerto Viejo, Samara Beach was always my second choice.
