Fabulous people, food, surf and views. Individual private suites nestled in the jungle ideal for just chilling out or as a base for a surf vacation. Stunning sunsets and ocean views. Close to Dominical!

Awesome drinks and delicious low key meal here. Great, relaxed, fun venue. We stopped by on our way out of town. Great rocky beach to explore and awesome huge iguanas to photograph. So glad we decided to stop, perfect end to our Costa Rica trip!

This is correct. The beach is cut off by rocks, and unable to pass in the direction of town. It would take approximately 40 mins to walk into town, but taxis are available.
