Cool beach. Light hits it just right. Can catch the surfers at Salsa Brava every morning, sometimes afternoon. Hang out, splash around, people watch or do some unexpectedly fun and easy snorkeling.

Soft, black sand beaches that are kept clean and beautiful. I would recommend making a trip to this beautiful area in Costa Rica.

Good luck leaving this place! So many fall in love and never return home. Its very remote, but if thats what youre looking for, then this is the place for you. The sun burns hot non stop.

Popular beach, but still not crowded. Clear, beautiful water and great waves, and shade also, if you need that. Open air restaurants are close enough to get a cool drink. Stroll into town when you need a break from the sun. Wonderful area!

Private, quiet, great waves, body surfing, walk to town from my resort (Chimuri Beach). I love how the sands change from brown to black. Look out for the pirate ship... anyone know what that is?
