Tour guides stand outside the Westin gates. The only beach chairs I saw available were for Westin guests. The vendors start to be a bit much,... More

This is one of my favorite beaches in Costa Rica that I visited in the over 7 moths of my stay. Great snorkeling too as well as Jet Ski rentals and shops set up. It requires a long walk along a neighboring beach to get too. More than worth checking out, amazing sunsets too!

This beach is very nice, clean, quiet, almost blue like the Caribbean. Worth a visit when you are in Costa Rica. You need to go farther down toward the end of the beach.

Playa Conchal is a bit south of Playa Flamingo/Potrero and will take you about 15 minutes to get by car from Flamingo. Its worth the drive - there are some nice trees so you can sit in the shade if you get too hot. In low tide, there are a ton of shells on the beach. (I guess if I... More

We went to this beach not knowing about how it is reached. You can access it by foot, about a 10 minute walk across the beach next to it or you can drive across that beach if the tide is low enough. Just make sure that if the tide doesn't come in so much that you can't drive back out.... More
