The Central Pacific Coast

is the actual recreation area of people from San Jose and its surrounding areas.

With the construction (in February 2010) of the highway San José – Calderas, the nearest beaches are only 50 minutes away from San José. The stretch of the coastline, all the way to the Nicoya Peninsula offers many great places to go.

Playa EspadillasManuel Antonio National Park

more monkeys than tourists!

The Manuel Antonio National Park is the smallest national park in Costa Rica, but not an unknown one (on the contrary). Manuel Antonio National Park is part of nearly every tourist route through Costa Rica, whether traveling on tour or on your own. What is to be found here so special? An intact nature with plenty of wildlife, jungle and palm trees next to the beach, the most beautiful beaches of the Pacific coast, and a well-developed tourist infrastructure.

Playa Jaco, Costa RicaPlaya Jacó, Puntarenas

nearest beach to capital San José

Playa Jacó (if not exactly a spectacular beach) is one of the best beaches near the capital (50 minutes), and has a first class infrastructure. Restaurants, banks, hotels, casinos, nightlife, tour and leisure facilities, etc. You can find all of these in a considerable quantity. Not everyone is looking for this, nature lovers want more tranquility. But it is a good option on the way to the south, or for a trip over the weekend.
