This may seem discouraging and you may immediately dismiss the idea, but in fact most attractions in Guanacaste are so spaced apart the 1 to 2 hours is pretty much the standard travel time to...

Few travelers have heard of this gorgeous beach and much less been there. The few that have been is because they know a local or they were there on an ATV excursion and then never returned due to not knowing how to get there. Some of the locals have heard of it but never have been there and quite possibly don't know how. It is located about 15 minutes from Playa Grande and some know the adjoining beach which is Playa Real. Upon reaching the beach you can park your vehicle in the shade not far...
