Playas del Coco, Guanacaste 
With more than 400 miles of coast line, the Guanacaste tourism area comprises the Pacific Coast area from the border of Nicaragua to the Bongo River estuary in the Nicoya Peninsula. This area boasts a significant number of protected areas including water, land, mountain, and coastal ecosystems that are teaming with life. 
The incomparable beauty of its landscapes, ranges from tropical dry forests to lowland mountain forests, warm climate, and flourishing nature.  All along the Guanacaste coastline are a number of beaches where you can swim in their warm Pacific Ocean waters. The coastal landscape is exceptional. There is an array of white-sand beaches and calm, intense-blue waters.  
There are two commercial centers located in the northern area: Liberia and Santa Cruz, which, in turn, are linked with five important tourism development centers: Papagayo, El Coco, Flamingo, Conchal, and Tamarindo. In the southern area, the commercial center is Nicoya with Samara being the development center. 
Playas del Coco 
This is one of the most popular and traditional beaches in Costa Rica. It is located in a bay with soft waves and is very suitable for swimming and boat docking. Its grey sands extend almost a mile and a half. To the south there is the Centinela Islet where there is a cove with white sands. Playas del Coco has a wide range of recreational and sporting activities, including sport fishing, diving, boat excursions, etc. It is also ideal for hiking and horseback riding.
