Las Tortugas Hotel located on Playa Grande in NW Guanacaste, Costa Rica
ANN’S FAVORITE SMALL BEACH HOTELS
This is a small hotel located “right on the beach” of Playa Grande, one of the prettiest beaches in Costa Rica. Playa Grande is a very long stretch of beige sand with strong to mild surf. People come here to enjoy the waters of the Pacific Ocean to swim, boogie board, and surf. Here you can avoid the touristy crowds and enjoy the peace and quiet. There are no high rises near by and no strip malls. Just beautiful beach as far as one can see.
Playa Grande is very famous for the Leatherback Turtles which come upon these beaches to lay their eggs and hatch their young. This is seasonal,
From around November thru March.
I like Las Tortugas Hotel because it is small and friendly. It is not a chain hotel so you get personal service, and experience a true beach vacation.
The room have comfortable beds and hot water. You can hear the surf of the ocean from you room because the hotel is so close to the ocean.
Prices in the restaurant are very reasonable.
In the area one can experience many outdoor adventure activities such as a day trip to Rincon de La Vieja National Park, hire a canoe with a guide and go down the near by estuary where you can see small crocodiles and so many beautiful tropical birds. Best to do this early in the morning when all the birds are out and singing. If you are planning a vacation to Costa Rica contact Ann, The Costa Rica Expert.
