Destination guide

Playa Flamingo is one of the nation's best beaches

If you look beyond the developments, you'll find one of Costa Rica's most scenic beaches. Picture-perfect arched bays covered in powdery white sands and backed by green shrubs are so close to Playa Flamingo vacation rentals, you won't even need flips-flops to reach them. Yachties come from far and wide to moor up in the country's largest marina and the spot is renowned for its sports fishing. Don't just bob on the water's surface though. Just below you'll find a kaleidoscope of color emanating from a variety of coral and schools of exotic fish.

Things to do

Eating out in Playa Flamingo

Attractions are a little thin on the ground in Playa Flamingo: it's more about the sand, sea and sun. In fact, photographers have long been coming to the Nicoya Peninsula and Guanacaste to snap the spectacular seascapes, though it's a tough job to truly capture it. If you fancy a day away from the beach, you can hop into the Playa Flamingo shopping plaza for a little retail therapy and pick up souvenirs to take home. Alternatively, Playa Flamingo vacation rentals are never far from the seafood joints which serve up fresh catches of the day in gorgeous surroundings.


Ocean-going activities at Playa Flamingo

With the only full-service marina between the stretch of coast that runs from Panama in the south all the way up to Acapulco in Mexico, it's no wonder there are countless possibilities for ocean-going activities. When you stay in a Playa Flamingo vacation rental, consider hiring a yacht and skipper for a day to cruise along the gorgeous coastline. Alternatively, you can don flippers and a mask to dive down for close encounters with many creatures of the deep, or cast in your line and try to reel in a trophy fish to take back home.


Look for a pause in the rain at Playa Flamingo

The best time to visit Costa Rica weather-wise is between December and April, when the skies are bright, the weather warm and the rains almost non-existent. It's no wonder with the cold winter snaps back home that it's also the busiest time to stay in a Playa Flamingo vacation rental. If you don't mind the odd tropical downpour, you can score a rental at seriously knocked-down rates between May and November. Pro tip: the rains stop briefly between June and July and during these months the interior just back from the shore is lush and green.

Natural features

Leatherback turtles in Playa Flamingo

When you stay in a Playa Flamingo vacation rental, you're just a hop, skip and jump from Santa Rosa, the first national park in Costa Rica. The 50,000 hectares of forest and marshland provide habitats for a surprisingly large number of critters. Amongst the lush greenery, you'll catch a glimpse of many of the 100 or so mammals that roam the forest, 250 species of avifauna and plenty of reptiles and amphibians. There are simply too many to list, but look out for jaguars, collared peccaries and magnificent leatherback turtles. We haven't even started on the 10,000 species of insects.
