Over 1200 km Beaches !!
Beaches The coconut trees, lithe and graceful, crowd the beach... like a minuet of slender elderly virgins, adopting flippant poses. ~ William ManchesterThe beaches (playas, pronounced PLY-yahs) of Costa Rica are as diverse as the country itself – you’ll find a mixed bag of soft white sand, black volcanic sand, pebble beaches, brown or gray gritty sand, muddy mangroves, rocky outcroppings, soft lapping waves, roaring surf, hidden reefs, spectacular dawns and breathtaking sunsets.
If you are looking for a beach vacation with lots of sun, sand and surf, the beaches of Guanacaste, on the Nicoya Peninsula, offer some of the best. Stiff competition comes from the Caribbean beaches south of Limón down to the border with Panama – specifically Cahuita and Puerto Viejo.
