Activities abound here in and around Playa Junquillal Click any photo to enlarge. Playa Junquillal is one of the finest beaches the Pacific Ocean has to offer! You'll find miles of clean sand here in Guanacaste, Costa Rica's northwest province.
Water sports, surfing, swimming and boogie boarding, snorkeling, fishing and, if you are not worn out by the possibilities, you can always just kick back and enjoy the beach from your patio. Did I mention horseback riding?
Golf, of course: Hacienda Pinilla is just twenty minutes away. A 1st-class golf course, this 18-hole journey would make any true golfer's heart beat faster.
Playa Junquillal is not quite a town - contributing to it's allure is its village charm. There are a handful of good restaurants some within an easy walk from Plumita Pacifica. There are stores here that carry the basic grocery items; for complete shopping Santa Cruz is very convenient.
Guided Tours are available to the beaches of Ostional or Playa Grande where turtles visit and nest.
There are also tours to "Rincon de la Vieja" volcano, or you can just hike and observe the geysers. Playa Junquillal is four kilometers of perfect sandy beach where iguanas race by, deer and raccoons hide, monkeys hang in trees and the rarest of birds are common.
