Unspoiled beaches line the coast allowing unrestricted public access because in Costa Rica areas within 50 meters of the shoreline 'belongs to all'. To the south is the OSA peninsula which is known for it's natural beauty. Take a day trip down the Sierpe river in a small tourist boat through OSA to see white faced monkeys, crocodiles, macaws, herons and numerous other birds in their natural habitat. Find world class surfing in Dominical and Hermosa, only 15 km up the coast. Coffee plantations, cacau and vanilla farms welcome visitors and proudly explain the horticulture of Costa Rica.
