The Top 5 Costa Rican beaches I’ve visited during my stay and would highly recommend to anyone else going on a Costa Rican adventure!
Playa Conchal in Tamarindo
This is a soft waved beach with white sands and very relaxing. A little busier but plenty of spots to throw your towel down and enjoy the beach and local wildlife!
Playa Flamingo in Tamarindo
Lush white sand beach, with small waves and a tasty beach front restaurant called Coco Loco, where you can get this tasty coconut ice cream and cold caramel coffee!
Playa Manta in Jaco
A lucky find, and a beautiful white sand beach with calm warm waters – in this area, this is where the locals go as the other beach nearby is private for resorts.
Playa Uvita – The Whale Trail
This beach takes you all the way down to the whale tail, which splits the beach in two and on the way you may spot Scarlett Macaws Parrots in the palm trees!
A small, calm quiet cove during the week with warm waters, ideal for the early mornings. They also do a tasty BBQ lunch. A little rocky and a short 5 minute walk down from the road, but well worth it!
