Nicoya Peninsula

Call 01242 547 701 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Costa Rica has some truly stunning coastline and the most scenic of the many beaches in this small country are to be found along its Pacific coast, along the Nicoya Peninsula. Dramatic coastal scenery, small local villages and a sparsely populated interior of cattle ranchers is framed by the backdrop of a steeply forested inner mountain range. Find hidden coves and bays on the Nicoya Peninsula overlooking the rugged Pacific Ocean. This beautiful region offers some idyllic and romantic small hideaways located on the coast which make perfect places to unwind at the end of your Costa Rica tour.
