This is a kind of place that is not for every one. If you are looking for a fancy and sophistication, this is not a place. This is the place to scape for everything and everyone. Plenty of sand, rocks, and waves.

No crowds and no noises in order to let you enjoy the Pacific Ocean and the waves only for you. A short walk let you forget all the stress you might have.

I would think that this is one of Costa Rica’s top hidden secrets. The beach stretches for literally miles in either direction and there are barely any people around. Check it our for yourself! You will not be disappointed!

A gem of a beach. Unspoilt, secluded, used by locals and guests from the RIU hotels. Wildlife aplenty so take the time to explore what it has to offer.
