The result are a multitude of beach towns the dot the coast line that range from quaint and cozy, to partying and bustling... and all types in between. In the South Pacific region, you'll find Manuel Antonio, one of the most popular beach towns due in large part to it's proximity to the National State Park by the same name, which is one of the most visited places in Costa Rica. Further up the coast is Jaco Beach, one of the first active beach towns that cropped up due to it's close proximity to the Central Valley and the only international airport at the time.

Further north you enter the Nicola Peninsula which is known for it's unsurpassed nature, beauty and Pura Vida. Ranging further up north into Guanacaste is Tamarindo, which might be the most popular of all beach towns in the country, then Playa Granda, a surfer's paradise, Flamingo where you'll find the most beautiful beach you may ever lay eyes on, all the up through Potrero, and sparkling ex-pat community, and Playas del Coco, one of the last large beach towns before you hit the Nicaragua Boarder.
