The small village of San Juanillo is situated between popular surf spots on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. This place is perfect if you are looking for tranquility away from the typical tourist-infested vacation spots. Here, you might be the only one on the beach, especially in the quieter months. (July is a great time to go!) You can fly into Nosara, the closest airport. From there you'll travel by dirt road through the jungle to San Juanillo. Keep your eyes peeled for monkeys hanging out in the trees, and iguanas running under your feet. The cabinas at Hotel Sueno are awesome, and the food at the Buddha Bar and Restaurant is beyond excellent. The menu includes daily specials of fresh fish, chicken dishes, and the linguine al pesto is fantastico! Drinks are well-priced so you won't be afraid to spend a few nights hanging at their bar, enjoying cocktails or cervesas. The hosts are friendly and speak English and Spanish. The beaches here are secluded and beautiful, completely natural and free from the anyone trying to peddle merchandise. It's a real experience of Costa Rica living, filled with fresh fruit and fish, clean water, and of course, the mighty Pacific.
