Playa Grande is a small quiet community living on balance with environment where time fills tide and path of sun.

Our beach on pacific ocean is surrounded by tropical dry forest protect from Las Baulas National Park, 6 miles of withe sand where leatherback turtles lay their eggs.
Salt water estuary is full of life, natural habitats for birds, crocodiles and monkeys it is classic half day excursion to go see all of this.

Experienced surfer will love our spot just one to step away, here at the middle of the beach depending on swell and tide waves are more consistent, intermediate areas are only a small walk away.

Surf in Grande is best from December through April, when strong offshore winds bring optimal swell.

Grande is also perfect base camp to explore nearby Roca Bruja, Avellanas, Play Negra, Marbella, Ostional, Nosara, Camaronal, for ride all Guanacaste waves!

How did you like the accommodation?


Excellent place! The house is lovely - simple but very functional and charming. The staff is wonderful - laid-back, helpful, etc. Location 50m away from the beach and with simple amenities around is hard to beat!

How did you like the surf lessons?


The beach is amazing - quite challenging for my level but I loved the surfing! Aitor was our instructor. He was ok - perhaps could have given a bit more feedback.
