A concerted development project by the government given Gulf of Papagayo a growing number of luxury and all inclusive resort complexes and turned it into one of the country's leading holiday destinations.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Playa Rajada and Iglesia Catolica de Playas del Coco. Take a break from the city and head to Playa Hermosa and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get out of town with these interesting Gulf of Papagayo side-trips: Costa Rica Sailing Center (in Playa Potrero), Playas del Coco (Crazy Alex CR, Rojas Bros Boruca Indigenous Arts, & more) and The Monkey Farm (in Playa Ocotal). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Conchal, tee off at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica Golf Course, stop by Souvenir Ocarina, and take in the exciting artwork at Hidden Garden Art Gallery.
