Playa Brasilito, Province of Guanacaste

While resorts sit on neighboring Playa Flamingo and Playa Conchal, Playa Brasilito retains a more natural feel thanks to minimal development. A limited number of accommodations dot this 2 km (1.25 mi) beach, which is perhaps one of the reasons locals choose it to escape the city on weekends. The beach is home to a small fishing village, which features a soccer field. Games often spring up on the beach itself, and locals often welcome visitors join. To experience a distinctly local vibe, this stretch of sand is the prime choice among Costa Rica's Gold Coast beaches.

  • Great place to relax, great restaurants, look for the north area of the beach just very secluded and beautiful, best spot to see the sunset  more »
  • Certainly not the best beach in Costa Rica, who expects bar, lounger and parasol will remain disappointed. Who instead (like me) like a beach in the wild, without motorboats and jet skis, without chaos or noises, with a clean water will certainly appreciate it. We hope you stay that way for a long time.

  • Playa Brasilito’s sand has a dull, grey colour. That’s the main reason that nobody - neither locals nor tourists - uses this beach and instead chooses to walk the 10 minutes to marvellous Playa Concha...  more »
