Dominical

4.6
Nature & Parks · Surfing, Windsurfing & Kitesurfing · Stand-Up Paddleboarding
The laid back beachfront town of Dominical has been transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a surfer haunt of some repute. Known for its large, year-round waves, Dominical tourism has grown by word of mouth, so the coastline remains largely undeveloped, allowing the scenery of small coves, sheer cliffs, and the deep blue sea to speak for itself. In the area's estuaries, mangroves, and marshes sit a number of wildlife sanctuaries, reserves, and plantations separating Dominical and surrounding settlements. Plan how to spend your time in Dominical and other destinations in Costa Rica using our Costa Rica day trip planning website.

Where to stay in Dominical

The estuary of Rio Baru offers memorable natural scenery, so it's no surprise that most of the accommodations in Dominical cluster around this point. Look to the eastern bank of the river to find a selection of resorts, eco-lodges, and villas offering pleasant waterfront views. For something a bit quieter but with excellent beach access, stay in a private vacation rental farther east down the coast. You can also head north to stay near Nauyaca Waterfalls.
