Travel photos of the day – Playa Blanca, Costa Rica

Playa Blanca in Punta Leona, Puntarenas is one of the most beautiful white sand beaches I visited in Costa Rica.

Located in the Central Pacific Region, it is about 20 minutes away from Jaco a great town for surfers and 2 hours from the capital, San José (depending on traffic).

The trip is itself is quite an adventure as you go down the winding roads.

You feel as if you’re on a roller coaster ride, so buckle up!

However, the views along the way are impressive 🙂

Punta Leona Hotel & Club is the perfect place to start exploring the area.

You can go surfing, sailing, sea kayaking, snorkel or simply relax and soak up some natural vitamin D.

I went for a leisurely stroll, feeling the sand between my toes and waves on my feet!

Life at the beach in Costa Rica is so good! No wonder why they call it the rich coast 😉

As they say: PURA VIDA!

      Thank you Mrs Sasu! Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to visit Guanacaste but would love to next time I go to Costa Rica. Yes I heard that there are some amazing beaches up north. I dream of going back 😉

    There is a gorgeous secluded little beach cove in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. It’s a true hidden gem! I miss Costa Rica SO much!
