I didn't see anything posted in the forums about this so thought I'd ask since the rules seem to vary a lot around the world. Here in BC you cannot have open alcohol on any of the beaches, but when we were in Hawaii it was not a problem as long as you were being conservative.
We like to bring some lunch and a couple of beers to go with it to the beach when we can, but I don't want to get in any trouble so if someone could let me know how things work there I'd appreciate it.
The beaches we'll be on are Playa Brasilito, Conchal, Tamarindo, Flamingo (a few around this area), Grande, Samara, and Carillo. I think I read somewhere that the police station is on the beach in Samara so if there are even any particular spots to steer clear of having any drinks on your tips are welcome!
