A trip to Costa Rica isn't complete without an escape to the beach. Fortunately, there is no shortage to choose from, with both the Pacific and Caribbean coasts on offer. The Nicoya coast has great year-round surfing, with warm water and long beaches, the beaches on both sides of the Peninsula are sandy, palm-lined postcard stuff, but the difference is the sea and accommodation.
On the Pacific side, of the Nicoya Peninsula, the Guanacaste province is ideal for active types, with its superb surfing, horse riding, snorkelling, and even windsurfing on mountain lakes. The Nicoya Peninsula is home to isolated and rugged beaches, nature reserves and quaint rural towns.
The southern tip of the Nicoya peninsula has grown in popularity with travellers and has some stylish and exclusive hotels. Montezuma and Santa Teresa are two emerging hot spots that enjoy a perpetual spring-like climate.
