This was our favorite beach from our entire trip. Not crowded at all. Simply gorgous sand and gorgous water. Calm and protected. 30 min drive on a dirt road to get there, but well worth it! You could also camp there if you wanted to....More

This is a must see if your kids like hopping through water holes and seeing sea creatures and baby fish. Find Mitch at Playa Conchal outside of the Westin and he’ll guide you through all the sea creatures.

We've been to many of the beaches in Guanacaste and this is our favorite. It was recommended by a local who told us about it...it's a hidden gem that is completely unspoiled. It is remote, but not too far off the beaten path and the...More

Playa Mina is a beautiful beach to visit if you want tranquility and solitude, free from being bothered by any other people. Incredible view and peaceful location which you will have all to yourself. A real treasure.

If you're looking for a great beach away from the crowd, check out Playa Minas! Shade, soft sand and calm water. Mostly locals and even then, not a lot of people in this quiet bay. Not far from Brasilito and easy enough to find. The...More
