Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula: Places to Explore


Playa Junquillal

Seekers of oceanfront tranquility need look no further than Junquillal (pronounced hoon-key-yall), a beach town as far away from the crowd as you can get on a decent road. A surprisingly cosmopolitan mélange of expats has settled in this out-of-the-way area, and there's a supermarket at the entrance to an upscale housing development. But Junquillal is still barely on the tourist map; consequently its few hotels offer some of the best deals on the North Pacific coast.
