Playa Dominical, la plage de surfeurs venus du monde entier pour braver les rouleaux.
Dominical, located on the southern Pacific coast is the best of what Costa Rica has to offer. In Dominical the mountains touch the ocean in a true South Pacific paradise. Dominical is a small town with about 500 residents. But within Costa Rica it is very popular due to the amenities it has to offer. Dozens of local restaurants offer typical Costa Rican, American, Italian, French, Thai, Mexican, Sushi and gourmet menus. Local activities are numerous and include fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watching, zip line canopy tours, quad rental and tours, horseback riding, waterfall tours, hiking, bird watching, rain forest tours surfing and many more. The beach, for many years was the only beach in Costa Rica that had life guards. The surfing is world class with what is considered to be the most consistent break in Costa Rica and many competitions are held there. Not a pro yet? No problem two kilometers south is a beach called Dominicalito. Dominicalito is a great swimming beach and has smaller waves great for the beginning surfer. There are many surf schools in Dominical to help every level of surfer advance in their skills. This small town has remained off the developmental radar until only recently. This is due to accessibility. It had been up to a 6 hour drive from San Jose. The drive now is just over 2 hours. Another way to reach Dominical is by air.
Manuel antonio :
Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica enjoys a popularity that hasn’t waned in decades, due to its top-rate tourist facilities as much as its heavenly white Central America beaches. The coastline is backed by uncultivated evergreen rainforest, home to 109 species of mammals and 184 species of birds. While accommodations lean towards the expensive side, Manuel Antonio’s idyllic vistas are priceless.
