“The BEST beach in Costa Rica!!!!”
Reviewed January 31, 2012

I traved up and down the coastline and fell in love with this place the first time I stayed there. I loved it so much I took my kids and husband back. There are coconut trees that line the beach, where you can hang your hammick, or enjoy the shade. The beach is filled with kids laughing and swimming, when the tide is low you can ride your bike on the beach, in the morning you may even see horses running down it. If there is an undertow we never experienced it in the 6 weeks we were there. I never worried about my kids being overtaken by the waves. THEY ARE GREAT SWIMMERS, 11 and 9 years old. You can surf, but the waves are small and great for kids or beginners to learn on. Kayakers were out everyday. This is a great place to take your family!
