Costa Rica - Travel Essentials
Papagayo Gulf & Northern Guanacaste
The Papagayo Gulf and the north of the province of Guanacaste are located within easy driving distance of Liberia Airport, making these amongst the most accessible of Costa Rica's beach resort areas.
The Gulf of Papagayo is home to many of the best luxury resorts in Costa Rica, with beaches lapped by warm, clear and calm waters.
Coco, Hermosa, Ocotal and Panamá beaches as well as Culebra Bay are popular spots and the area has seen something of a boom in recent years.
Villa Buena Onda is a great option on Coco Beach for an adults-only boutique hotel, whilst El Mangroove on Panama Beach is one of our favourite luxury boutique hotels in Costa Rica.
Many of Costa Rica's All Inclusive resorts are found here, but there are also several of Costa Rica's best boutique hotels.
The Gulf of Papagayo is ideal for those looking to combine a luxury Costa Rican beach resort with some nature or adventure activities.
With dry tropical forest, volcanic landscapes and several national parks close by, there is no shortage of attractions beyond the beaches of the Gulf.
Southern Guanacaste & The Nicoya Peninsula
South of the Gulf of Papagayo, The Nicoya Peninsula offers dramatic scenery and charming small villages and is home to many of the best beach resorts in Costa Rica's north Pacific Coast.
From Potrero beach up north to Pinilla beach further south, this area is home to some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches in Costa Rica.
Portrero Beach is home to the lovely boutique Bahia Del Sol Beachfront Hotel.
The lively town of Tamarindo offers some exciting nightlife and a wide variety of restaurants.
This is Costa Rica's Pacific Coast at it's most developed and will suit those looking for nightlife, shopping and dining.
There are a handful of lovely boutique hotels in Tamarindo including Capitan Suizo on Langosta Beach and the luxurious Cala Luna.
Surfing, fishing and snorkelling are also popular along the Nicoya Peninsula.
Nosara and Samara
Wild and beautiful Nosara beach is ideal for surfing and is also well-known amongst yoga-lovers - an ideal location for a yoga retreat.
Samara is a much quieter beach, with calm waters ideal for kayaking. The town offers a wide selection of hotels, restaurants and entertainment.
Further south down the Nicoya Peninsula, Punta Islita offers spectacular sunsets and beautiful beaches and is a good choice for those looking for a serene ambience.
Punta Islita Beach itself is a kilometre long stretch of beach on a private cove which connects with the longer Playa Corozalito, backed by mangroves and a popular turtle nesting site.
The quaint village is home to a lovely white-washed church and there are plenty of activities on offer around here including hiking trails in the forest.
The area features excellent surfing conditions.
Malpais, Santa Teresa, Montezuma and Tambor beaches are also popular in the south of the Nicoya Peninsula.
