To get to the beach we had to pay entrance fee- around 3 euro per car. There is no road, it is more off road for about 3 km. Beach itself is small- nothing really special. There is also restaurant.

Went on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Pay 3euros at the bottom then drive all the way to the top along a off road track. Park up and you have access to lots of smaller beaches in little coves. Amazing views from up top. The beaches...More

there are no bars or restaurants on playa de Papagayo. that's the whole point of this beach. it's wild and away from all the amenities. bring a sandwich and some drink with you if plan to stay there for more than an hour.
