Visit a Beach Near Vistas de Chirripo

Costa Rica BeachesSouthern Costa Rica is blessed with stretches of tropical beach of unsurpassed beauty, many within easy driving distance of VISTAS DE CHIRRIPO Country Estates.

“where the mountains meet the sea” --- the southern pacific coast of Costa Rica is unique in having rainforest-covered mountains descend to sea level, providing an awe-inspiring backdrop to the sandy beaches of the coastline. The beaches themselves are protected by mangrove growths and lined with palm trees.

Costa Rica BeachesUnspoiled and uncrowded --- wide expanses of fine sand. You can easily find your own tranquil spot to roam, swim, snorkel, or lounge the day away. Costa Ricans enjoy the beach as much as tourists do, and weekends will find families picnicking, children playing, and pick-up games of soccer on the beach, but the miles and miles of beaches allow everyone to find their own space if they wish.

Marino Ballena National Park --- near Uvita,18 km. south of Dominical on the coastal highway --- “ a coastal and underwater paradise of protected marine life, with submerged reefs and jutting offshore islets whose beauty defy description. The park extends south from Bahia 15 km. to Punta Pinuela and 15 km. out to sea, protecting not only several fantastic beaches (Playas Ballena, Ventanas, Pinuelas, etc.) but also about 4,500 hectares of marine sanctuary, including the largest coral reef on the Pacific coast of Central America.”
