Playa Guiones is absolutely beautiful. It is completely unspoiled. I love that there are not tons of hotels lining the beach like you see in many other places. If you are looking for a touristy type beach where there are tons of vendors renting umbrellas...More

The beach is one of the most beautiful settings in the world. You’d never know there was a town behind the beach as there is no construction 200m from the beach to preserve wild life. What a place !

Would love to try the horseback riding next time I visit. Just so cool that there is no development on the beach. And, the trash and recycle bins are right there as you stop off the beach. We should take some notes here in Gloucester!

Perfect beach to learn to surf or play around with a boogie board. Shallow smooth sandy beach with consistent waves. Great temperatures Easy access No worries...very little shade though

Its a very Long Beach to walk on which is great , but its a black sand beach and the vegetation around is not pretty, so its not the best view.

Great little towns, Nosara, Guillones, and Ostional. Off the beaten road. There is bus service, but the rod is not paved and could get rough in the wet season. But worth the trip.

Clean, flat beach perfect for surfing, boogie boarding, walking or just playing in the waves. Our vacation rental was a mere 7 minute walk away. We also walked to the north end and took the path to Playa Pelada one day for a change. I...More

Is the place everyone can enjoy. Is a huge beach with great space for playing, hanging around, walking and getting into the ocean. Many small “ocean pools” for the little ones safety
