Amazing wildlife, both on land and sea. turtles, colorful fish, whales, iguanas, monkees at the door, armadillos, tropical birds...
Playa Negra is a beautiful dark-sand beach famous in the surfing community for its right-hand barrel waves. The beach lays on the Pacific coast in Costa Rica's hot province of Guanacaste. Its location sits in close proximity to other popular beach breaks including "Little Hawaii" on Playa Avellanas, a short 10-minute drive away.
Playa Negra is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes from the town of Liberia and its international airport. The drive from San Jose takes 4-5 hours crossing the Tempisque Bridge. Another option for travel from San Jose is to take a domestic flight to the popular tourist destination of Tamarindo, which is approximately a 35-minute drive away (perhaps a slightly longer drive in the rainy season.) Daily public buses leave from Santa Cruz, but a taxi or rental car is recommended. Santa Cruz also has the last available gas station in the area. After Santa Cruz, the road passes through Paraiso, a small community 4km from Playa Negra.
My girlfriend and I found Alfonso through AirBnB and couldn't have been more glad we did. New to Costa Rica, and Central America as a whole, we were largely unsure of what we would find upon arrival. Thanks to Alfonso, and Juan (his housekeeper) we were able to secure an awesome beach cabin for an entire month.
The cabin has all the essentials: 2 beds, gas stove, refrigerator, wifi, and many ceiling fans, not to mention it's in a great neighborhood and very close to the beach. The particular development in Los Pargos, is essentially a gated/private community, with many nice homes. Our neighbor, Jeremy, renting Alfonso's other property was also very nice and very hospitable.
When the airlines lost my surfboards, Juan, Jeremy, and Alfonso couldn't have been more helpful. In fact, everything arrived the very next day!
Thanks again Alfonso! We hope to see you in the future!
