Learn More about Playa Grande

The beach of Playa Grandey is quite wide and relatively uncrowded, which makes it a good place to stay with a small group or family. If you spend the day surfing, it is not really a place for beginners, the waves are almost always there, and they are consistent! During your lunch break, you can find some chiringuitos not far from the beach, as well as the famous Costa Rican Pinto-Gallo.
