“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Costs 3 euros to park, which we were happy to pay.The roads to the beaches are not surfaced but as they are so well used they are flatish and smoothish.

When we got to the beach we were even happier as the beaches were quiet (we did go in October!) and there was plenty of parking. The golden sands made a perfect retreat for us and we stayed alot longer than we planned as there was a nice breeze ensuring that we did not get too hot.

“Beautiful !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

It's a little bit tricky to find, and you have also pay a fee for the car, but I really think that is a great place.
There are several beaches in the area, but the pappagajo is the best!!!
You need a car to arrive there, I don't thing there are other way!!

“Turquoise waters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We hired a car and asked what would be a nice beach to see. The person at the Car hire company recommended us Papagayo beach so we followed his directions.
We paid the 3 Euros to enter. We were not sure what to expect after driving on the dusty track but it is well worth it.
There are numerous beaches, we saw two, both very alike and both beautiful. There is a small coffee shop on top of the cliff.

“Worth the bumpy ride on the dust track”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fantastic beach, not as remote as we had anticipated and a great little cafe atop the cliff. There are at least 5 different beaches and we went for Papagayo itself.
