My partner and I want to spend a quiet & relaxing 3 or 4 days by the coast on the Nicoya Peninsula in December - preferably somewhere with some good snorkelling nearby. We were thinking of somewhere like Playa Grande, Nosara or Samara. What snorkelling options are there in these areas and how rough/calm is the sea? Where else would you recommend on this stretch of coast?
We're planning to drive to the Peninsula from Santa Rosa National Park and would appreciate any advice on how long this would take. Any ideas??
