San Juanillo Beach, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

San Juanillo Beach

Unique nature miracle

This is not only one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, without a doubt it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, since its uniqueness of having 2 beaches in one, is absolutely a miracle of nature.

Both beaches are beautiful, on one side with a little more shade and white sand, perhaps with less stones and the beach in front of it, with a beautiful landscape, with white sand with black spots.

This beach deserves to spend the whole day on it, there are no nearby restaurants. so it is recommended to bring plenty of drinks and food, as well as beach umbrellas.
