Sitting quietly on Costa Rica's north Pacific coastline, Peninsula Papagayo is a destination that prides itself on its enviable location (teeming with exotic flora and fauna), stunning coastal setting and a local residential community that embraces tourism. As an upmarket and exclusive corner of Costa Rica, Peninsula Papagayo holidays are well-suited to families wishing to experience the Pacific coast; the bays are protected and therefore much calmer, making them ideal for swimming, while its inviting shores sit just 30 minutes from Costa Rica's Liberia International Airport. Through years of volcanic
activity and the effects of its seasonal climate, the jagged peninsula has been formed to perfection, with the Bay of Culebra to the east and the Gulf of Papagayo to the west, featuring 21 beaches and 15 miles of simply breath-taking coastline. Often overshadowed by the larger peninsulas to the north and south (Santa Elena and Nicoya), Peninsula Papagayo was, until recently, Costa Rica's secret little gem. Only those who explored by boat, foot or horseback reached Papagayo's undisturbed paradise. Now the secret is out and a peppering of good hotels have set up camp here, making it a real contender for a luxury Costa Rican getaway. Diving with enormous bull sharks around the Bat Islands is another amazing experience to be had during Peninsula Papagayo holidays – if you like sharks, that is.
