Playa Brasilito, Guanacaste

Took this photo in January (2017) while visiting the Pacific beach town of Brasilito, in Guanacaste.

Playa Brasilito is a tiny fishing village between Playa Conchal and Playa Flamingo,  and among the first beaches to attract international attention along Costa Rica’s ‘Gold Coast,’ located 70 km from Liberia international airport and around 45 km from the town of Santa Cruz.

The  2-kilometer long beach of great scenic beauty is a 10-minute walk from Playa Conchal and a 5-minute drive from Playa Flamingo.  With just a few hotels and cabins, much of this beach retains a local flavor with many Ticos (Costa Ricans) coming here to spend the weekend away from the city
