Situated between the bustling towns of Jacó and Manuel Antonio, the remote Playa Bejuco offers a serene alternative for those looking to escape the crowds at some of Costa Rica’s more popular vacation destinations. Killer waves complimented by the isolated beauty of the tropical rain forest and volcanic black sand beach lure surfers and beachcombers worldwide.
The warm, iridescent waters of Playa Bejuco proudly boast consistent year-round waves, unbelievable barrels, gnarly rights and lefts and swells ranging from three to 16 feet! The nearly deserted beach allows avid and novice surfers alike the opportunity to thrash the waves without having to dodge a mass of swimming and snorkeling tourists.
Playa Bejuco is home to an incredibly intricate mangrove forest inhabited by an array of Costa Rican wildlife including bright, colorful macaws and white-faced monkeys. Don’t forget to pack your binoculars as this is an ideal location for bird watching. A number of activities are also available in the surrounding areas, including ATV excursions, sport fishing, canopy tours, horseback riding and river rafting.
Because Playa Bejuco remains undeveloped, it doesn’t offer much in regards to dining or nightlife. A handful of typical Costa Rican restaurants offer delicious and satisfying Latin fare, however; those looking for variety can easily head north to Jacó or south to Manuel Antonio for a wider selection of delectable goods and lively discotheques.
Playa Bejuco is the perfect place in Costa Rica for visitors seeking tranquility; while its prime location between Jacó and Manuel Antonio provide an outlet for excitement should the mood strike. The pristine environment of Playa Bejuco is ideal for families and couples simply looking to detach from world and relax with loved ones.
