The expansive shoreline of Costa Rica's Pacific coast is a true gift for beach lovers. Beautiful white or volcanic black sand paradise lined with palm trees, naturally rugged beach coves surrounded by tropical rainforest, abundance of wildlife, both marine and peaking out from the forest. People come here to surf, swim, bask in the sun or simply enjoy the laid-back beach towns sprinkled along the coasts. The beaches around and inside the Manuel Antonio National Park are considered to be the best in the country. The best place to stay in close proximity to a variety of beaches is the Manuel Antonio village.
