Dominical and Dominicalito - beach chairs available?

I'm going to be in Dominical for a week for the first time in a month. Last time I was in CR i stayed in Manuel Antonio, where there were plenty of places to rent a lounge chair and umbrella when you get to the beach.

But Dominical seems a bit quieter. Does anyone know if Dominical or Dominicalito beaches have beach chair and/or umbrella rentals, or am I better off buying one up at a beach shop upon my arrival?

Thanks

There aren't any beach chairs or umbrellas for rent. However, the tree line does come up close to the shoreline, so you can find shade there. You would only need a chair. I just reclined against beachwood when I was there. They have a few touristy merchants there selling trinkets and such, but that is about it. Very VERY low key, handful of bars, few restaurants, lodging and a general store or two.

You are right it is quieter. In Dominical or Dominicalito beaches I have not seen beach chair and/or umbrella rentals.

None in the area, you are better off buying one on the way. If you are comming from the airport stop by Jaco to buy them not great choice in the area. The beaches are a lot less touristy than MA so not enough crowds to justify renting or selling.

Also check out Marino Ballena Park Marine park beach in Uvita as well as Ventanas beach.

Enjoy your stay!

It might be too late but we do rent beach chairs and umbrellas at Pineapple Surf Shop in Dominical. Go to Pineapple Kayak Tours office. They are $1/hour. The beach chairs are fully equipped with a cooler bag on the back too! We are located next to the Police Station in Dominical.
