Overview

La playa no esta turísticamente desarollada, las puestas del sol desde allí son increibles. Desde el restaurante Puesta del Sol Dorada, cual ofrece comida tica deliciosa, se puede admirar. Enfrente la playa rocosa, mejor para banharse es la playa más al norte en dónde hay piscinas para echarse una banhadita. Allí, envez de conchas, se encuentran piedras en diferentes tamanhos y colores.

This is a relatively small beach with great sand and good surf. Appears to attract the younger generation. Many boats run tours from the beach.

Manzanillo is one of best beaches in Costa Rica. It's Caribbean, so expect a lot of music, great food and lovely people. You will find some surfers and some spot at the beach where water is more relaxed so you can enter and have some...More

The stretches of beach that I've seen between Playa Manzanillo to Santa Teresa are all sand and rock with no concrete walkways, stairs, etc. There were several spots that we were able to walk straight from road to beach... More
