About the neighbourhood
.Costa Rica beaches do not come more beautiful than Playa Grande, a seemingly endless curve of sand with water as blue as the summer sky. A great place to surf or take a private walk down the long stretch of sand. A beach trail to the North brings you to another beach near Grande called at Playa Ventanas, there are palm trees, coconuts, and driftwood scattered about the sand. The waves at Playa Ventanas are usually small making it perfect for beginner surfers, snorkelers, and swimmers. Surfing expert Mark Kelly rates Playa Grande as 'maybe the best overall spot in the whole country' The entire shoreline is protected within the 445 hectare Playa Grande Marine Turtle National Park, (Parque Nacional Marino Las Baulas) which guards the prime nesting site of the Leatherback Turt...
Getting around
There are private taxis available as well as the public Bus that comes into Playa Grande 2 times per day . Although a rental car is highly recomended to maximize visiting all the unique beaches close by.
