Playa Guiones, Costa Rica
Just 154 miles from San Jose, Playa Guiones is a sleepy beach town with the best surfing and snorkeling on Costa Rica’s central Pacific Coast, in the Province of Guanacaste. There are several surf shops where you can rent, buy or repair surfboards in case you didn’t bring yours! Waves are consistent year around!
Most accomodations and restaurants are located in the jungle instead of on the beach front, a wonderful place to kick back and relax while enjoying the breathtaking ocean views, spectacular sunsets and many distinct species of flora and fauna.
