Playa Flamingo ©
The white sand beach of Playa Flamingo has become a go-to tourist getaway by the sea.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at El Viejo Wetlands and Costa Rica Sailing Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Playa Flamingo: Hacienda El Roble & Adventure Center (in Santa Cruz) and The Monkey Farm (in Playa Ocotal). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Playa Conchal, look for gifts at Bahia Artshop, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.
