Costa Rica has some truly stunning beaches, the most scenic of which are to be found on the Pacific coast, rather than the Caribbean coast. Popular beaches in the north are located in the province of Guanacaste and on the Nicoya Peninsula. Here there is an excellent choice of romantic, small hideaways located on the coast, which are the perfect place to unwind at the end of your stay in Costa Rica. Further down the coast, the beaches at Manuel Antonio are ideal for beach break with safe swimming for the kids and easily reached from the capital San José.
