Is some peoples preferred coastline in Costa Rica, with spectacular beaches for snorkelling, diving and swimming, fishing and surfing! The virgin beaches are remote and spectacular and relatively undeveloped, adding to their beauty. There are more activity-based things to do as well as more national parks on the Pacific Coast but also have the perfect spots to kick back and relax. Cano Island, Drake Bay, Tamarindo and Flamingo are great surf spots. The pacific coast is the better coast to use as an entrance point into the national parks and rainforests.
This is a fantastic beach along the pacific coast for surf lovers. There are all different levels of surfing here, so it is a great place to learn as well as a long right break for the more experienced. As in any surf town, Tamarindo Beach is home to great restaurants and bars in the evenings, after a hard day battling the waves.
Montezuma beach is further south and boasts an excellent climate all year round. This incredible white sandy beach has the fantastic backdrop of lush green jungle behind you and the feel of paradise. From here you can visit Tortuga (turtle) Island and will stop off at 2 points to go snorkelling and scuba diving! These magnificent creatures can be seen in large quantities and just one of the incredible species of marine life you will be able to see.
The Osa Peninsula is the gateway to the Corcovado national park. This is one of the top destinations for hikers in Costa Rica. This is where the wild mountain forests meet up with the ocean. It is also a great place for a digital detox or simply to get away from it all!
