I never really expected almost anywhere in the world to find an amazing beach left... so remote that I was the only human on the beach besides my husband....and yet...right across the road was a magnificent resort/pool/restaurant. It's like having your own private paradise and they were totally booked! Palms line the beach and hammocks are yours for the taking. Just beyond is a huge (tide out, HUGE) beach of sand and brilliant blue-green waves crashing just offshore. I felt like Robinson Crusoe with NO other human being in sight 85% of the time. But when you are ready to socialize and eat, it's all there for you. A "palm-thatched" restaurant/club that serves magnificent food and duplex "palm-thatched" huts that were designed ulta elegant. 12 rooms in 6 "huts". Outside the town of Parrita which is very close to Quepos, a nice sized town but not a tourist resort. Bus/taxi/rental car are all options. If you really need a break and want to feel you are a local (a pampered local!), then this is the place!
