“Nic beach, no swimming”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Nice beach (not amazing, though) but you can't really swim as the waves are huge, and the riptides are strong. Go to Manuel Antonio - much less exlclusive, much more people, but at least you can swim...

“secluded, private beach.........”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

......as long as there are no holidays in Costa Rica. This beach is a real find, but keep to yourself.

You can walk for hours and never be bothered, wake can be very dangerous.
