South Pacific Beaches

The south Pacific has always been a very popular place for nature lovers, being the home of some of the most unspoiled natural beauty in Costa Rica, such as the Osa Peninsula. Surfers long ago discovered the beautiful breaks around Dominical and many luxury home communities have begun to spring up in the area attracting retirees and investors from around the globe. A popular pastime is whale and dolphin watching, especially in the Drake Bay area.
