The privacy found here is much more serene than that found in other beaches along Guanacaste’s spectacular western coast. Playa Real is a great spot to enjoy some relaxing down time capped off with a mesmerizing sunset. The perfect weather year round yields temperatures between 70ºF and 90ºF (21ºC to 32ºC) which makes this beach as good as any for enjoying Costa Rica’s natural beauty.
