We spent a few hours here and enjoyed the sites and sounds. If you want to try surfboarding this is the place in Costa Rica. Lots of places to shop here as well. There is also no shortage of places to eat and drink

Great place for vacation relaxation. Waves not too big so little ones can go in the water. Huge beach so didn't feel crowded at all.

Our son Tedward and my husband Ronnaton really enjoyed the beach... but make sure to stay at a hotel that has some private space next to the beach. I recommend the Diria as you will have grass and chairs, right next to the beach. Tedward...More
