Laze on shell-spotted sands in Playa Conchal

Like an ocean treasure chest that's been flung open, the wide bay of Playa Conchal glows with its shells and sugar-like sand midway between surf-washed Tamarindo and lively Playa Hermosa. Mentions of it on lists of Costa Rica's most beautiful coastal stretches are well deserved, as are musings of its crystal-clear waters and Robinson Crusoe-esque vibes. Plenty of luxurious Playa Conchal vacation rentals hide neatly behind the rows of palm gardens that dot the beachfront, meaning it's possible to bag a pad that's just a short walk to the sands in the morning.

Crank up the relaxation in Playa Conchal

Playa Conchal's paradisiacal character lends itself to vacations of rest and relaxation. Crack open a cold beer and watch the Pacific surf roll in, start that new novel and find a comfy spot on the sands, or soak up the rays between snorkeling sessions in the teeming shore waters _ it's a doozy of a place for unwinding from the stresses of the Rat Race. In the evening, the sunset shows are a must, while stargazing after dark provides a cosmic display to mirror the glimmering flecks of seashell in the beach beneath your feet.

Beach lovers assemble in Playa Conchal

Ah, Playa Conchal: A long arc of golden-white sand speckled with seashells, lapped with the see-through waters of the Pacific, and dashed with tiger-striped fish species here and there. With such a gorgeous beachfront right on the doorstep of those Playa Conchal vacation rentals, you're likely not to need any other attraction at all. They are there if you want them, though. Golf lovers can hit the manicured greens of the Garra de Leon. Those in need of pampering can opt for massages and steam treatments at the Ahuia Spa. Cocktail bars carry on in Brasilito.

Playa Conchal: An escape from the winter

Playa Conchal follows the same climactic pattern as the rest of the Costa Rican Pacific. The summer months are the wettest, with just a few sporadic showers hitting the beaches from May to August. The rates are lower then, though, and the downpours are rarely enough to interrupt sunbathing and swimming sessions for too long. The winter months of December, January, and February are the most popular times in Playa Conchal vacation rentals, bringing snowbirds down from the north to seek out tropical sun and warm seas.

Playa Conchal _ a beach to write home about

There are plenty of reasons why Playa Conchal is regularly touted as the top beach in all of Guanacaste Province. Its soft sands are peppered with seashells that roll in from the Pacific. The waters are lapping and colored a light blue. There are palm groves and clusters of sea grape trees dotting the dunes to the back of it all, and some rocky outposts where it's possible to snorkel in the company of stingrays and multicolored schools of fish.
