This part of the Central Pacific has one of the most consistent and cleanest breaks for surfers. Waves frequently break head high and are great year round. Besides surfing, the waters are friendly towards all sorts of activities, such as horseback riding. At low tide, the size of the beach increases dramatically, creating a blemish free vastness of dark sand waiting to be explored by beach combers.
Accommodations are sprinkled throughout the Esterillos area— from those providing direct beach access, to lodgings further back through the dense secondary forest, to the lush hillside which overlooks this peaceful morsel of paradise.
Esterillos can be reached by either north or south from Highway 34 (Costanera Sur). Quepos and nearby Manuel Antonio National Park are an hours drive down the highway to the south. Just 20 minutes south of Playa Hermosa, Playa Esterillos is a great stop for any travelers seeking soothing ocean breezes and plenty of sunshine and shade.
