“Beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

It was a great way to end our trip - spent that time on the beach our last afternoon in this area to watch the sun go down. You can rent chairs along the beach. Prices vary. Be careful who you pay and don't leave valuables alone on this beach.

“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

The beach was beautiful. We visited in May and there were not a lot of people. Monkeys and racoons try to steal peoples' bags and provide a lot of entertainment in the process!

“Great beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is a stunning beach inside the national park. Once you are past the entrance and crowds of tour groups blocking the entrance, it takes around 20 minutes to walk to the beach.

The beach is a cove with jungle up to the edges. There is lots of wildlife around, lizards, iguanas raccoons and monkeys will all appear as you laze on the beach, however the larger animals will eye up your stuff to steal if you don't keep an eye on it!

Bring food and water as these cant be purchased once inside the park

“Amazing Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

The Beach is picturesque and the water feels amazing. Definitely one of the best beaches in the world. Ya definitely put your food in a backpack or else the racoons or monkeys will take it. They are cool to see for a minute but they can get annoying
