Playa Herradura, or Horseshoe Beach, has long been a favorite of both vacationers and the local "Ticos". Just a short distance from the bustling capital of San Jose, this vibrant volcanic beach is a lively spot on the weekends, with plenty of local flavor, and it simmers down to a quiet, breezy paradise during the week.

Playa Herradura - Beach Information - Fun Things to Do - Tips

Playa Herradura, or Horseshoe Beach, has long been a favorite of both vacationers and the local "Ticos". Just a short distance from the bustling capital of San Jose, this vibrant volcanic beach is a lively spot on the weekends, with plenty of local flavor, and it simmers down to a quiet, breezy paradise during the week.
About Playa Herradura
Playa Herradura Bay Puntarenas is very conveniently located, with a ferry that jets off regularly to nearby beaches and islands, like the dreamlike Isla de Coco or Nicoya. Playa Herradura, however, leads the bunch with its lot of activity and unmatched tropical scenery. Although the weather is perfect just about year-round (between 70-85 degrees), Herradura is heating up quick as a tourist destination. A jungle covered set of mountains adorns the backdrop of this black-sanded tropical gem.
What to get into?
Deep Sea Fishing in Costa Rica The great thing about a place like this is that if today you don't feel like doing anything, there's no better place to do just that, but if you do, the opportunities are limitless. Playa Herradura is best known for its world-class fishing, and mind you I don't use that term lightly. Fishermen in Playa Herradura have been reeling in record Sailfish, Dorado, and Tuna for some time now, and as such it features the country's largest fishing fleet. There's even a brand new 5-star Marina, Los Suenos, with 200 wet slips and excursions of all kinds. Herradura's mountainous scenery is equipped with several zip lines and "Aerial adventure parks", from which you can zoom back and forth across breathtaking stretches of mountain valleys decorated with dense rainforest. Adventure is always available, whether it's horseback rides into the jungle or along the beach, catamaran tours to misty nearby islands, or any variety of water sports. There is also a brand new 18-hole golf course, just around the corner from the Marina.
Playa Herradura Golf Course Good Eats on the Beach
Puntarenas its beloved Playa Herradura have no shortage of delicious Costa Rican cuisine. The beaches are dotted with "sodas", beachfront eateries which include the beach view we all want to relax and have a good meal with, without thinning your wallet. Soda Jaco Rustico is the place to go for an excellent Costa Rican experience on the beach, authentic and economic. The fine diners will of course want to check out The Green Room, Lemon Zest, and El Hicaco, all of which combine fantastic food and beachfront views.
