In my opinion, Playa Conchal is the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. The dazzling beauty of Playa Conchal is very moving. This beach is definitely one of a kind in Costa Rica. The sand is composed of millions of crushed sea-shells. It looks white and is very cool to touch. The waters are a glorious turquoise blue, impeccable for swimming. There are a number of resorts adjacent to it.
Corcovado is also spectacular. Corcovado is on Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula. Its beaches are ripped with brown sands that are shielded by palm trees. Inland is one of Costa Rica’s eco-zones the Corcovado National Park, which has some of the coolest wildlife in the world. One of the highlights is to take a charter boat ride to Isla del Caño, a divers’ paradise and an archaeological dream to see the Island’s pre-Colombian stone spheres. It has been established as a protected national park, with a permanent ranger station on the island. Marine life includes manta rays, dolphins, sea turtles, whales, and a wide variety of tropical-colored fish.
Like Corcovado, South of Limon, has the Cahuita National Park and Manzanillo just two more eco-zone that Costa Rica sports. It is not uncommon to hear monkey chatter and see them swinging in the trees. South of Limon takes on the personally of a kick-back Jamaican lifestyle with the beaches to match.
Tambor is also amazing. At one time Tambor was inhabited by whales. Lazy-arched bays calm the swells and make thewaters glassy, a perfect spot to swim, snorkel, scuba drive, and pinch sand between the toes when taking a sunset walk. Inland you can horseback ride, take a hike, and/or enjoy the quite lifestyle.
Nicoya Peninsula (Costa Rica’s largest peninsula) has so many strips of sand, it must be on the top beaches in the world list.
Playa Tamarindo is the mecca of tourism in Costa Rica – its surrounding beaches are the home to the giant leatherback turtles (and others) where they annually climb up the beaches to lay their eggs.
