Playa Guiones - Where Jungle Meets the Sea

Playa Guiones is definitely a special place. Consistent waves, breathtaking views, responsible development and a friendly vibe make this a great Costa Rica surf vacation for anyone. Here's a video giving you a better feel for the beach scene in Playa Guiones.

So who would I recommend visit Playa Guiones? Almost anyone. Backpackers, solo travlers, honeymooners, young couples, retired couples, families with young kids, families with teens, surfers, paddleboarders, non-surfers, nature-lovers, explorers and just about anyone else I missed.

Who would I NOT recommend go to Playa Guiones. Only those who are looking for a very upscale experience or who don't want to drive on bumpy roads to get here. There are some VERY nice hotels to stay at (like Harmony Hotel or L'acqua Viva) but you won't find fine dining, paved roads or fancy cars. If you're after those things, go elsewhere, if you're after great surfing, friendly locals, like-minded travelers and fair prices, come to Playa Guiones!

Oh, and forget about the hassle of brining your own surfboard, there's plenty of surfboard rentals in Playa Guiones. Personally I rented from Coconut Harry's. They have two location, great boards, huge variety and really fair prices. Check them out for sure.
