Playa Espadilla Norte reviews
The beach itself was great. We had tried surfing in Santa Teresa and absolutely could not hang. These waves were much better. There are lifeguards due to rip currents so could not be out past your... more »
Always excellent! Decent small surfing waves and also fun to swim. Keep an eye out for rip currents. Restaurants nearby and lots of places to rent boards or chairs and umbrellas. Beautiful sunsets!! more »
Before entering the beach there are locals who try to hustle you into paying to park to “protect your car from thieves”. They are the ones who look like the people who will steal your stuff. Be sure to empty all your belongings into your hotel regardless of if the items have value or not to deter a break in. The beach itself is over populated with vendors who take up most of the shaded area with their chairs and tents for rent, or surfboard and kayaks. There’s also too many visitors for you to really enjoy a tranquil time at the beach. It’s much more worth paying the $16 per person and use the beaches in Manuel Antonio National Park. There are no vendors and much less visitors at the national park.
Very nice alternative when the nearby park is full. The locals who annoy most people are actually very helpful if you're nice to them. They pointed out a resident sloth when asked.
