  • A nice, quiet beach if you want to avoid the crowd at Tamarindo. It's an easy 30 minute walk from Punto San Francisco, just use caution crossing the estuary along the way.

  • Love Playa Grande Beach super clean, friendly atmosphere. Good for swimming, surf, running or walking. Not to mention that we saw some turtles tracks. In love with the beach.
