Playa Grande

Playa Grande Real Estate – Playa Grande is a very important section of the Marino Las Baulas park on the Pacific coast in Guanacaste. Since being integrated into the park in 1990, the general public has been allowed to visit, however, it remains extremely protected since the leatherback turtles use it as a nesting ground.

Playa Grande is one of many stunning beaches in Guanacaste. Police patrol the beach after dark, and beachgoers are only allowed during the day. This is done to protect the leatherback turtle nests. The turtles come to shore between October and May to lay their eggs. Leatherbacks will grow seven feet long and weigh up to 700 kilograms! Playa Grande has excellent surfing conditions and is located close to other popular areas, allowing easy access to many goods and services.

Playa Grande is one of the best surfing beaches in Guanacaste, The waves here are suitable for both beginners and more advanced surfers. The waves are consistent, and the breaks are spread out. A southern swell works best; the larger swells come between March and November. There are strong currents, so it is not the best for swimming. There is a nice swimming beach just to the north, which is also suitable for snorkeling and diving. There is a lovely estuary that is great for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. There is also a large mangrove area that is great for kayaking. There are many other activities in the area as well. Playa Grande features a few bars and restaurants and is a quick walk away from the more populated Tamarindo area, separated by a wildlife estuary. Crossing the estuary by foot is not recommended, but several small boats always offer crossing services for a few dollars.

There is a relatively large grocery store called WALMART as you enter the Playa Grande area.
Of course, there are public schools in the general area for those who have kids, but there are also several great private school options close by
