Visit the Nicoya Peninsula
Hidden in the secluded coves of the Nicoya Peninsula you'll find some of Costa Rica's most stunning white-sand beaches. The ring of coastline around the Guanacastle lowlands reserve in the north attracts crowds of surfers and beach goers every year.
The popular northern resorts fan out from the area's sun-soaked capital Tamarindo, while those looking for a more intimate tropical retreat head for the privately run hotels of the peninsula's secluded southern coast.
Here the small bohemian town of Montezuma offers the perfect blend of beach holiday and rainforest and, while tourists head to the beach to relax, large groups of capuchin monkeys can be found chilling out by the region's spectacular waterfalls.
In the sands around Punta Islita your footprints might be the only ones for miles, disturbed occasionally by the shifting tide or the region's turtle population as whole stretches of the Nicoya Peninsula are popular nesting grounds for green, leatherback, Olive Ridley and loggerhead turtles.
