“Best beach in Costa Rica and snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Costa Rica has many great beaches...bit Conchal is really outstandingly beautiful and als good for snorkeling, which seldom directly at the Pacific beach. There is also nice tents to rent for a high price but worth it.

“Several Beaches to escape the crowds in the vicinity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I love seclusion and that's just what I was able to find on the numerous beaches. The best way to go about it is to simply talk with the locals or get with a small group of ATVs and have a guide take you around. Hotel Bazilito is nice with $55 rooms for 3 people and good food and service and an ocean view.

“Playa Conchal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Beaches were clean but are shell beaches so they are rough on the feet and can be a bit muddy. There were no waves present during our eight day stay. The beaches are also public and therefore are full of vendors. The vendors are assertive but not aggressive.

“White Shells Sand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

A special kind of white sand! Beautiful ocean colors. No crowded beach, long enough to take a good walk.
