Take to the Water
There are plenty of boat trips leaving from Playa Blanca that offer the chance to see some of the picturesque tiny islands just off the coast, as well as snorkelling and diving deep in the ocean. Some companies also offer lessons on how to sail the boat, you never know, that might come in handy in the future!
Shop by the Sea
Marina Rubicon is a gorgeous place to hang out both in the sunshine and under the stars. There is a local market there every Wednesday and Saturday which sells a huge variety of locally sourced goods. If you can’t make market day, then pop down to enjoy the designer shops and delicious restaurants.
Work for the View
Watching over Playa Blanca is Montana Roja, a huge dormant volcano which is very popular with walkers. It’s worth the effort that it takes to reach the top as the views of the surrounding areas are stunning, and the walk around the crater is exciting for both adults and children alike.
Hit the Beach
There are several beaches around the area which are all protected coves making them ideal for swimming and sunbathing. There are plenty of water sports available on the busier beaches or head to The Papagayo coves which are part of a national park making them largely unspoilt and great fun to explore and relax in.
