The beach is accessible via paved road from its larger sister to the north, Playa Sámara. It is a short drive of approximately 6 km.
The typical amenities found on most Costa Rican beaches are harder to find here; the beach is relatively quiet and deserted. For the usual offering of rental and tour services, your best bet is to head to neighboring Sámara.
There are a few accommodations located in the town of Puerto Carrillo, on the hill that slopes eastward from the beach.
•El Sueno Tropical is a jungle and beach hotel that is located on the edge of the jungle and a couple kilometers from the beach. There are 4 buildings with 4 units in each, as well as an international fusion restaurant and full bar that overlook the large pool. Prices are affordable and range from $40-$120 depending on the unit and the season.
The coastal route south of Puerto Carrillo turns into a dirt- and dust-riddled affair. Though it is technically possible to explore the southwestern reaches of the Nicoya peninsula this way, it should not be done without a 4x4 and should be avoided outright during the rainy season.
