Beach
“Past Playa Hermosa is Playa Panama that is one long beach at low tide and two beaches at high tide. You can park at either end. Good for a long walk at low tide.”

“If you have a car and want to take a day trip this beach is great to go to. It’s on the peninsula and you need to park at the parking lot of the hotel but they provide free transportation to and from the beach!”

“Near the marina and the Allegro Papagayo property is a parking lot where you can catch a free van ride to several beaches. This year we went to Playa Nascascolo which is close to the van stop and a short walk to the beach (no stairs to speak of). We saw several Koatis and Capuchin monkeys. The latter are a nuisance. They got into our bags and dropped items into the beach. Fortunately we did not bring food. They will steal anything edible. The beach is great and snorkeling is half decent on the south side. ”

“BEACH. Drive to the Four Seasons resort and follow the signs to the parking lot. Once parked the staff will load you into a van to take you via the Four Seasons service roads to the beach. We always go to Nacascolo beach. (there are options). There are bathrooms, showers, and a small wood walk way right to the beach. Clear waters in the bay. BEAUTIFUL. LOVE it here. Pack a lunch and drinks OR head to the end of the beach and pay for food and drink via the Andes resort.”

“Very small beach inside the Secrets resort. All beaches in CR are public so if you park on the side of the road before the entrance and provide your passport number you can get a wristband and go to the beach. ”
