    Sámara Off The Beaten Path

    We had heard from numerous people in town that Mel Gibson had bought property in the area and that it was near Playa Barrigona. So being the true adventurers we headed out to find the beach. When one says that a place if off the beaten path, Playa Barrigona is that ideal place. It's located about 7 kilometers north of Samara and you will need to go...

    Brasilito Things to Do

    Playa Flamingo was one of the beautiful of the beaches we encountered while in Guanacaste. It is accessed from the paved road leading to Brasilito, then a side road, through a town, that eventually turns to dirt. You can park on the side of this road. The beach is across from a large, very fancy hotel. There are guards at the entrance to this hotel...

  • Playa Conchal

    Brasilito Warnings and Dangers

    The "seashell beach" was mentioned by several resources I encountered. The access was stated to be from Brasilito on a small road. This road begins as a rutted, dirt road, but soon becomes just the sand itself. There is a resort perched just to the west of Brasilito, so access to the beach has been made difficult. If you want to reach it, you'll...

    Potrero Nightlife

    Sleepy sea side taco spot located on the beach at Playa Potrero. With the exception of Wednesday nights, this is a laid back and relaxing spot for a meal or drink. Kid friendly too! On Wednesday nights it's ladies night and hundreds of locals from miles around arrive for Tico ISO Tica fest. a sight to behold to be sure. Loin cloth and better.
