Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Sights

Playa Pelada

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 04/14/2014

Fodor's Review

North along the shore, Playa Guiones segues seamlessly into crescent-shape Playa Pelada, where the water is a little calmer and just as clean, also designated a Blue Flag beach. There are tide pools to explore and a blowhole that sends water shooting up when the surf is big. Lots of trees provide shade. This is the locals' favorite vantage point for watching sunsets—great photo ops, with beached fishing boats adding color and interest to the foreground. Olga's Bar, a

recently renovated Tico beach bar, is an atmospheric place for a cool beer. More upscale and romantic are the Balinese settees in front of La Luna Bar & Grill. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: sunset; surfing; swimming.
