Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Travel Guide

Playa Bahía Junquillal

This 2½-km (1½-mile), tree-fringed, Blue Flag beach is as close as you can get to a white-sand beach in this part of Guanacaste. Not to be confused with the Playa Junquillal on the western coast of the Nicoya Peninsula (that's farther south), this beach is part of the Guanacaste Conservation Area, and is a wildlife refuge to the north of Santa Rosa.
