While staying in Jaco, I read about this as a cleaner and nicer alternative. It was just a ten minute drive down the coast. There was nearly nobody there, just some surfers and local dogs and me. After the crowd and noise and washed up debris on Jaco, this was a very nice change of scenery. The only thing I would mention is that there is truly nothing on the beach so if you want water or food you just have to stop up the road..but again the seclusion is part of the appeal to me.
