Playa Grande

A number of online sites are indicating that Playa Grande 30 minutes from Montezuma beach is clothing optional. Can anyone confirm?

May be there is a Playa Grande nearby Montezuma as well, but THE Playa Grande is a 20 minutes drive from Tamarindo and a long way to go from Montezuma

Good point by Tineke...we have a few Playa Grandes...the clothing is not optional at any of our beaches...if the police at any beach do not like what is going on...they will ask to dress properly...is not optional is by law!

Occasionally, I've seen a few people way NE of Montezuma with nothing on (usually topless), but they usually cover up (or stay in the water as I pass by). But it's not an area that's even unofficially designated, it's just so isolated that I think they just say "what the heck". It's not a common occurrence, maybe every other trip to El Chorro (2 hours hike) I'll see someone, but it doesn't mean they didn't see me first and cover up.

I would say there is not a "specific place" where people go. I've never seen a group of people. So if you do looking for a specific place, I don't think you'll find it...
