Among the first beaches to attract international attention along Costa Rica’s ‘Gold Coast,’ Playa Brasilito along with Playa Flamingo
and Playa Conchal
sit on the northwestern shore of Guanacaste province
. A tiny fishing village offering a wonderful beach stretch to relax and enjoy, Playa Brasilito is located 70 km from Liberia
and around 45 km from the town of Santa Cruz
. Easily accessible by bus and taxi, many people land at the Liberia International Airport
to get here.
Beautiful Place to Get Away
A 2-kilometer long beach of great scenic beauty, Playa Brasilito 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. A small town in the center of Playa Brasilito is a soccer field or Plaza, while around the edge of the village you will find a few small pulperias or general stores. A surprisingly pleasant place to spend some quiet time, tourists can experience Tico life at its most natural out here.
