There are two different routes to get to Playa Mal País: The best route route is to take the Paquera ferry-boat from Puntarenas. The second route is by taking the Tempisque Ferry and taking the route Tempisque- San Pablo- Jicaral- Playa Naranjo- Paquera- Cóbano. Playa Mal País forms a very irregular and rocky shoreline, where the visitor can find coves, capes, platforms and rocky sheets stretching out from sandy portions of the beach. The beach is inhabited by crabs. Ponds of sea- and rainwater pools form individual eco-systems each. The scenery is of great beauty because of its contrasting diversity.
