Known for its stunning semi-deserted beaches linked together by grey stone cliffs or tangles of knotted mangroves, as well as enchanting villages, Tico cowboys and a very unhurried temperament, the Nicoya Peninsula is the more rustic end of Costa Rica‘s northern Pacific coastline.

The region generally benefits from a bit more isolation compared to the Guanacaste coast, especially in the south.

When to go

All year round, as the hot, dry climate of the area means there is little rain from November to April and temperatures are pretty consistent. The southern Nicoya region however experiences more rainfall as per its transitional position from dry to tropical.
