Go off the beaten path and visit the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula. From Playa Tambor to Santa Teresa de Mal Pais this area features what many consider to be the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Less developed, no crowds, breathtaking scenery, and fine accommodations, the Nicoya Peninsula is one of the not so well-kept secrets in Costa Rica. Getting there is an adventure in itself!
The best-known towns in this region include Tambor, Montezuma and Mal Pais. Montezuma and Malpais are particularly popular with the surfing crowd. Elegant, luxurious accommodations can be found in resorts such as Flor Blanca, Latitude 10 or Tango Mar. While access to the region can be challenging, short flights from San Jose, a ferry crossing from Puntarenas and water taxis from Jaco are available.
We recommend staying a minimum of three nights in the region due to its remote location. Visits to Arenal, Monteverde or Manuel Antonio are the perfect complement to your stay in the southern Nicoya Peninsula.
