Best Beaches For A Winter Vacation

If you are in a position to escape the cold, then Costa Rica is an ideal place for you to visit!  With nearly 300 different beaches along its stunning Pacific and Caribbean coastlines, many offer unique draws and distinctive settings. What is most remarkable, is the variety you will find from one beach to the next.  Even adjacent beaches can be surprisingly varied with sand coloration moving from golden to white, to black, to brown or even pink!. Some beaches are full of shells or scattered with rocks, while others are soft with fluffy fine sand – like talcum powder. Some are fantastic for swimming, and others are perfect for surfing.

This post will introduce you to some of our favourites…

    I LOVE Costa Rica, a country where you have access to both the Pacific and Atlantic coast with some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Love soft sand? Pick your favorite color!! There’s white sand, dark sand, golden sand, pink sand, black sand — hidden paradises or busy touristic sites. The people here are so lovely!!
