Known as one of the most sophisticated beach towns in Costa Rica, this small but special town has a lot to offer. This area has a huge passion for the protection of the national parks system which makes the place unique for its hundreds of acres of protected forest. Being woken up by monkeys, eating healthy and real food, playing outside, enjoying wonderful bilingual private school options, and learning to respect different cultures, the children grow up with a real sense of life.

Yoga and surfing culture is huge and a significant component of this town. You will see that people are either carrying a surf board or a yoga mat in their arms. There are a variety of fitness options all over town. There are plenty of adventure activities around like ATV tours, zip lining, horseback riding, stand up paddling, kayaking, and much more.
