Relaxation Meets Heart-Pounding Adventure
Playa Flamingo is one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica - a crescent of sugar-white sand framed between turquoise water and lush mountain foliage, and home to some of the most beautiful hotels and private residences on the coast. This is a swimmer's beach, with warm water and family-friendly waves, shady trees and balmy breezes. It's the perfect place to relax and ponder in peace. It's also a great launching pad to visit the surfing beaches just 15 minutes south, to explore the wonders of national parks and nature preserves, or to enjoy the cultural and culinary delights of nearby villages and communities. This is a place where in the same day you can thrill to the rumble of howler monkeys, watch a three-toed sloth dangle languidly from a vine, rappel down a waterfall, soak in a hot springs and be lulled to sleep by the ocean's lapping waves.
