Did You Know, Costa Rica’s Beaches Belong to It’s People
Yes, all the beaches in Costa Rica belong to the people of Costa Rica. No hotel can claim that you cannot access a certain beach because it is their property.
Building is not allowed on the beaches 50 meters from high tide.
Especially at holidays such as Christmas, New Years, and Easter you will find the beaches very crowded with Costa Ricans in tents. They will bring a cooler, barbecue grill, guitar, and of course all the family including even the babies. They swing hammocks up between the palm trees and have a great time visiting with each other and enjoying the sun and surf.
The night brings strumming and singing, bonfires, and Costa Rica’s great beer, Imperial.
It’s wonderful to see these people having so much fun, living the simple life. Not spending a lot of money but having as much or more fun than those staying in a five star hotel.
