The Pacific coast of Costa Rica is famous for its fabulous views and it hosts many small boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, unique, and often family-operated restaurants, ranging from typical Costa Rican cuisine, to fine dining fusion. The communities along the coast each have their own flare and attractions.
From north to south, here’s a list of coastal towns we represent along the Pacific coast of Costa Rica:
White sand beaches, turquoise water and an abundance of a marine wildlife directly at the beach. Located by Quepos.
San Isidro lies in the middle of the peaceful mountain range of Talamanca. Visitors benefit from just an hour car ride to the beach.
Dominical is the gateway that opens up to Costa Ballena. With consistent waves it attracts many surfers and beach lovers.
Costa Ballena’s most famous natural attraction, the Whale’s Tail is found in Bahía along with Parque Nacional Marino Ballena.
With ocean and mountain views, Ojochal has many bed and breakfasts, boutique hotels and has a reputation of being the heart of fine dining in Costa Rica.
Diquis Valley, Sierpe is an important town from a conservation point of view, as it serves as the entrance to the largest mangrove reserve in Latin America.
The absolute highlight for everyone that is interested in Pre-Columbian history are the mysterious stone spheres around the area of Palmar Norte and Palmar Sur.
Puerto Jimenez lies deep in the Southeast of the Osa Peninsula. It is the biggest town of the Osa and is the main harbor on the east of the Golfo Dulce.
Right on the mainland side of the Golfo Dulce lies the small port town of Golfito. Close to several beaches, many recreational sports fishermen chose Golfito as a home.
Pavones is more for the action and thrill seekers and lies two hours South from Golfito. It is heaven for expert surfers, as it has the longest left point break in the world.
