Life in Playa Langosta
Tucked away in the Guanacaste province in southern Costa Rica
, Playa Langosta hits a sweet spot when it comes to tourism. The town is certainly popular during the busiest part of vacation season, but it never receives the crowds of some of its neighbors. The soft, sandy beach, however, is no less breathtaking, offering a great space for splashing with the kids, beachcombing, and sunbathing.
Surfers, on the other hand, will want to hit the unique waves of the surf break at the estuary just to the south. The rushing waves of the river mouth meet with those of the sea to create an incredible spot for the sport on a secluded part of the beach.
Natural Beauty Abounds
Playa Langosta is conveniently placed for taking in one of the area's finest national parks. The Las Baulas National Marine Park spans tens of thousands of acres, covering sandy beaches, dense mangrove, and lush rainforest. From the myriad bird species populating the park to the massive leatherback turtles that lay their eggs from October to May, there's sure to be a special encounter that'll wow the kids and make you fall in love with the natural world all over again.
Sightseeing near Playa Langosta
The most obvious destination to visit from Playa Langosta is the nearby town of Tamarindo
. The town's beaches are another great destination for surfers, but the real reason to stop by Tamarindo is its shopping and dining. There's far more variety here than in sleepier Playa Langosta, so be sure to set aside some time for souvenir hunting!
