“A beer at sunset”
Review of San Juanillo Beach

Reviewed 25 March 2018

We had a really nice moment here with my wife and a couple of friend we had a beer while waching a wonderful sunset in this nice beach with narrow and safe warhers. Remember, to get here you have to drive long a dirty but funny road, like almost all the roads that takes you at the beaches in Costa Rica. Yes is used to read people complaining for the roads to get here ir there but this is Costa Rica, the 90% of the roads to go to the beach are dirty ones, not dangeros not with big holes but not gravel on them, is a way to preserve the nature and i like it, Great Costa Rica, bravos,

It’s off the beaten path but definitely worth it. Great place to swim, sunbathe and chill. Love this beach. We go here every time we go to Costa Rica

This beach is uncrowded and one of the most beautiful places on earth I’ve ever seen. There are tress for shade. The water is warm and calm. Not a beach that you need to worry about rip and surf. There is also a side of the beach that looks north and provides a great view. As well as the rocks that you can walk out onto and watch the waves crash. No vendors hawking their crap here like in Tamarindo. Beautiful and unspoiled. Our favorite place.

Great low-key beach with friendly locals. Lovely sand, shells and sunsets. Water is warm. Hermit crabs everywhere, loved it!

This is a more remote area, and accessed via a gravel road for about 20 miles. It’s a lovely beach, with lots of rocks, tons of shells, minimal people. If you roll that way, then this is for you. Away from crowds is what this place offers. Amazing sunsets over the rocks!
