Looking for "hidden gems" in Costa Rica

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Costa Rica for 15 days in late July early August, our 6th trip. This time we will be concentrating on finding the smaller "hidden gem" type places/beaches. We're planning on visiting Playa Avellanas and Lola's bar as an example. Looking for other similar suggestions. We'll be everywhere from Arenal to Playa del Cocoa and down to the Dominical area, and everywhere in between.

Looking forward to your ideas.
