We stayed in Playa Esmeralda for 11 days and had a blast! The resort was beautiful and well-maintained. The food was delicious and the entertainment was so fun. The excursions really made our stay remarkable, however. Rafael and Pepe took us surfing, snorkeling, and spearfishing. We can't say enough about the professionalism and friendliness of the guides.

I’m from Florida. We know beaches. Trust me, Playa Costa Esmeralda is on of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. We were only one of three or four groups there on a Sunday. No seaweed, no crowds, crystal clear water, heaven-on-earth.

Beautiful beach! Went during the week and we were the only group there. We even saw horses on the side of the beach. And the best part, we got to park on the sand. It was amazing. Would recommend to anyone!

We drove out here ourselves. It is a 5km drive from the main road. The road is very rough but the locals said the government is planning to repair it. The beach was empty when we were there. Water and beach very clean

This beach is beautiful and almost empty. I suggest going before they build hotels near there. I was told that they are working to construct big hotels nearby.

For me really is the most beautiful beach I’ve ever been

The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the sea

Very nice sand and is almost a virgin beach

Very recommended

Even though it is not so easy to get there even with a relative good car, it is absolutely beautiful there. Just leave before the sand fleas become really aggressive around 4pm.

Completely wild and unspoilt - a beach from postcards with white pristine sand and cristal waters! Truly magical having 4km of beach to yourself. They are currently in the process of building a 5* resort there, which is likely to restrict access to part of the beach once completed. Go while you can still roam freely! Access is only with private car or hiring a mototaxi to take you and pick you up. You can walk from the nearby town but it would take around 2 hours. Take plenty of water and lunch because there are no facilities or shops. Palm trees provide shade if you want to escape the sun and not roast yourself all day. Honestly one of the most beautiful places I've been in my life.
