There is nothing more relaxing than spending your day under the sun with your toes in the sand. As you’re planning your next vacation to Los Sueños in Costa Rica, you’ll want to be prepared so you can get the most out of your time. There are amazing beaches to choose from up and down the Costa Rican coast so you can find the one that gives you everything you want. Indulge in a tropical vacation and browse through this list of the best beaches in Costa Rica in Los Sueños to prepare for your next trip.

1. Los Sueños Beach Club

Guests of Los Sueños Resort have the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing beach with ample amenities right on the property. During your stay, you’ll have access to the Los Sueños beach club which includes a massive freeform swimming pool, jacuzzi, and access to the white sand beaches on the resort. With gorgeous views of Herradura Bay, these waters are great for swimming and relaxing close to your vacation rental.

2. Playa Herradura

The nearest public beach to Los Sueños is Playa Herradura which is just a short drive or walk from the resort. You can enjoy wide, relaxing beaches with amazing views and the warm waters of Herradura Bay. Kayaks are available if you’d like to rent one for some fun on the water and a few beachside restaurants to grab some food during your time soaking up the sun.

3. Playa Mantas & Playa Blanca

If you’re looking for a relaxing beach with more seclusion during the weekdays, Playa Mantas is a great option. You can get there by car from Los Sueños Resort and while there is a fee for parking, the attendant will watch your car all day long and there is no charge for showers or bathrooms. This spot is usually less crowded and the calm waters make it great for swimming peacefully.

While the entrance to Playa Blanca is private for guests of Punta Leona, the visit to this beach might be worth it. The white, sandy beaches and the crystal waters are gorgeous and it’s just a short trip across the rocks from Playa Mantas. This trek would not be good for those visiting with children and older adults but if you’re up for the adventure, it could just be worth it!

4. Playa Jaco

In the opposite direction of Playa Mantas in more ways than one, Playa Jaco offers a fun and exciting beach atmosphere that’s great for sport, partying, or hanging out. Playa Jaco has great waves for surfing, especially for beginners, and the atmosphere is lively with visitors celebrating the beach atmosphere. The beach is clean and the strip running parallel to the beach offers fun activities all day and night.

5. Playa Hermosa

While not a great beach for those wanting to swim, Playa Hermosa offers a great spot to stretch out and work on your tan or go for a long walk. This beach is home to various world surfing contests so if you’re lucky enough to be in town during one, it’s worth the visit. There are great shops, restaurants, & small town beach vibes to be had all day at Playa Hermosa.

6. Take a Beach Adventure Tour

For an added flair of adventure, set off to sea and enjoy some secluded beaches that are only accessible by boat. Stay in Costa Rica offers various trips that allow you to see the wilder side of Costa Rican beaches.  Take a ride on the Tortuga Island Catamaran and relax on a tropical island after your exciting boat ride. Or you can opt for a jungle beach day at the Manuel Antonio National Park.
