Best Beach South of Manuel Antonio?

My husband and I are debating where to go once we leave Manuel Antonio. We're thinking of heading south to explore some of the lesser known beach areas, e.g., Dominical. Any suggestions as to where we should go? We'll have two days to spare before we head back to San Jose. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The road going south from Quepos to Dominical is dirt and pretty rough unless they have improved it recently. That said, there is not much tourist traffic until you get to Dominical. If you go, check out Matapalo and Hacienda Baru'. It is still possible to walk on beaches that look like you are the first one to set foot there....
Dominical is a surfers town with some pretty nice places scattered around the area.

My husband and I spent two nites at a great place in Dominical up the river called Rio del Mar which was great. Manicured grounds,good restaurant, and great swimming pool with individual cabinas. Great find and reasonable, too! When you enter Dominical go to the right and follow the river - everything else on the beach was more for the surfers. We then traveled further south and explored all the beautiful beaches.
