Situated forty five km from Quepos, Dominical is a sleepy surf village located on the Southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica and home to a selection of really beautiful beaches.

From its emerald waters to its fiery red sunsets, the pure and natural beauty of this area is second to none.

There are various surf schools, where you can learn how to surf the big Costa Rican waves and it’s very easy to walk along the various roads to explore the national park and beaches.

We recommend Playa Dominical as the perfect place for relaxing and enjoying the tropical surroundings. There are various tours that can be taken from here to see the pristinely beautiful Nauyaca waterfalls and to nearby hills that offer spectacular views of the surrounding coastal area.
