Southern Nicoya Peninsula

southern nicoya peninsula beach


The southern Nicoya Peninsula has long been one of Costa Rica's most secluded gems. From the hilly interior, the mountains sweep down to the Pacific Ocean, creating some of the most pristine and remote beaches in Costa Rica.  Most of the hotels and businesses are small and privately owned with a very laid back atmosphere.  While Guanacaste is known for its dry climate, the southern Nicoya Peninsula receives more rain, making it a transitional zone between dry forest climate and tropical rain forest resulting in a more lush environment year round.  Lodging options on the southern Nicoya peninsula range from budget hotels to some of the most luxurious boutique hotels in Costa Rica.
