Guanacaste, Costa Rica Beaches

The Gold Coast

Costa Rica’s gold coast is a beach lover’s paradise. Imagine an everlasting summer with warm waters and breath-taking beaches.

Its beaches are as diverse as its residents. There are secluded beaches where you can tuck away for a romantic hideaway and beaches that have the hustle and bustle of an international beach town. This region’s beauty has, for decades, attracted adventurers from all over the world to settle down here.

There are restaurants, resorts and local art of exceptional quality, but they’re hidden, like the pearls in the ocean, in the small towns hugging the coast. This stretch of beach offers every beach activity you may be looking for:

• World-class surfing at places like Tamarindo, Avellana Beach, Witch’s Rock at Playa Naranjo, Nosara and Playa Negra where the famous surf movie Endless Summer II was filmed.

• Scuba diving and snorkeling off of Flamingo Bay, Ocotal Beach and Conchal Beach.

• Experience the famous nesting sites for the giant leatherback sea turtle (Playa Baulas and Playa Grande) and also Olive Ridley sea turtles (Ostional Beach).

• Guanacaste is known for its horses, ranches and cowboys. Enjoy a horseback ride down a long beach or along forest trails for an amazing experience.

The Tamarindo area, in particular, offers so many adventures, it wouldn’t be possible to cram them into just one trip. Rent a 4×4 and explore the unique ecosystems and hidden treasures of Costa Rica’s Gold Coast.

After a day full of new experiences and adventure, relax in one of our luxury condos, where privacy, luxury and the comforts of your home in paradise await.
