COSTA RICA: NICOYA PENINSULA

The isolated Nicoya Peninsula is the perfect place to get away from it all with miles and miles of deserted beaches dotted with small, charming villages and a laid back atmosphere.

Nicoya Peninsula is one of Costa Rica’s most isolated and sparsely populated regions. Most of the towns and villages are spread out along the pacific coast with miles upon miles of deserted beaches and hidden coves. Many of the beaches are a surfers paradise and yoga is also a favourite pass time. The laid back and easy going locals are famous for their longevity regularly leading active lives past the age of a hundred! The beautiful natural setting is complimented by a good selection of boutique and wellness focussed hotels and upmarket private resorts.
