  • I was there with my family in the summer of 2017 and fell into the hype of Costa Rica and the Pura Vida. The reality it is a dirty and unsafe country ...though in comparison to most Latin American cou...  more »
  • You can find shade. the waves are strong, but the water is perfect. Bring your drinks and your food and you will have a great time. You can walk to the nearby Beach, which is in full sun but very quiet. Attention flea sands that will sting you!

  • Great beach. Need to drive on sand to get to. Local mafia offers “protection” when you park for 6$. The police needs to deal with this. The beach is gorgeous. Constantly harassed by people that want to sell you stuff on the beach.
  • Beautiful beach! Large, white sand, beautiful blue water, calm, and super fun! One of our favorite beaches from our trip! Just keep driving until you past the Resort and park along the beach.
  • It's one of the most unique and beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my life, You gotta live it!!! By the way, local ppl will tell you you can't park at that specific beach but there is a way to get there so don't believe them just keep driving till you get there. Also I can't believe someone would rate this beach less than 5 stars, these people are retarded!
  • Long Beach so you can find a secluded spot. Soft sand! Definitely worth the detour
  • Great place, try not to go on weekends, way too much people
