Don't drive all the way down that treacherous road though. Walk down there and enjoy.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

My fiancé and I got married here. The photos were amazing. The photographer, kanutto got the most beautiful photos I have ever seen. Thierry picked the location and helped with everything. We are not gay, but we love that it's a gay friendly beach!!! Too cool.

“The best gay beach in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

Get a Playita Infobuliten to work out the tide schedule. Remember, the showers and bathroom at the back of Playita are public.

Enjoy!
