Hello everybody! I am in need of some serious advice.
I'm heading to Costa Rica The first week of May and I was hoping that you guys could help me pick a good Pacific beach to spend the last couple days hanging out and enjoying the water. I'm looking for a non-tourist beach area that my friends and I can maybe take some surfing lessons at, but avoid all the drinkers of the Caribbean.
What beaches have you guys been to that you liked?
I will recommend you Manzanillo beach. It is perfect for a peaceful vacation and is not crowded at all. Manzanillo is a small fishing village that is surrounded by forest area and so it offers rich wildlife as well. The whole area is very picturesque.
I live in Costa Rica and our favorite beaches are Esterillos Oeste and Esterillos Este on the Central Pacific Coast. Totally not touristy and not sleezy like Jaco! Here is some information:
this place sounds great! thanks laurel!
Dominical and Uvita are good places as well, it dependes where are you coming from, I mean your last detination before the beach, to see how convenience it will be
One of our favorite Pacific Coast beaches is in Moclips, Washington
Wide beaches, you can drive your car on the beach and picnic.
I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm in Washington. What I meant was Costa Rican Pacific beaches. ^_~
I'm laughing at myself. I read the heading and Moclips popped into my mind. I guess I stop reading and started writing. After working all day I guess my concentration is waining.
Did you find a nice beach in Costa Rica.
LoL, it's no problem. I thought it was really funny too ^_^
I did find a good beach. We headed up to Tortugero, which is famous for the sea turtles every summer. It was wonderful.
Glad you had a fun trip. Tortuguero is nice. I live in CR, have only been out there twice but it is pretty sweet. Were you able to see any turtles while you were visiting?
I wasn't able to see any because I was there in May, too early for the sea turtles. But I saw a lot of monkeys, caiman, and met some really nice people!
You can go for Mission Beach, Mission Beach is located on a narrow strip of land between the ocean and Mission Bay, only a few blocks wide.
Pacific Beach P.B. for short) is one of San Diego's many beach towns, bordered on the south by Mission Beach and Mission Bay, to the north by La Jolla.
I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm in California. What I meant was Costa Rican Pacific beaches. ^_~
Thanks for the tip though ^_^
I'm laughing at myself again. Glad I'm not the only one who didn't read the entire thing.
Life is too short not to laugh.
This teaches me to always put a country in front of everything ^_^
i dont know in fact beaches in costa rica, but the miami beach in california is one of the <snip> best pacific beaches! Trust me and try!

Living in Samara Beach, Costa Rica, obviously I recommend this beach. Why? Because it is a little beach town, no disturbing big hotels which could ruin the beach setting, peaceful, a great mix of local and foreign people and of course an amazing beach. I also recommend the beaches around Samara and in the south of Costa Rica, Peninsula de Osa!
