Family trip to playa negra in feb?

Looking to rent a large house for 3 families in Guanacaste. Found a great house in Playa Negra but not sure if location the best. Have one surger but the rest are more boogie boarding, swimming, active trips. What do you think? Is there another beach that is better? We'd rather not be right in the middle of a town or resort - a little seclusion. Thx

Was just researching the same thing.

Sorry I didn’t see anyone reply to you.

Did you wind up going ?

I’ve been to tamarindo and that town seems like too far a drive to do multiple times on a trip.

Was the town of playa negra enough ?

Playa Negra is a plce for surfers…well let say surfers like Playa Negra…even that is a nice area…I think for a family you can do better.
