Relax at the beach and enjoy your adventures

The Costa Rica Hotel Paraíso del Cocodrilo with its familiar atmosphere is located beside the beach Buena Vista on the northwest pacific coast of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. To get to the beach it takes you around 10 minutes walking. It is only 6 km (3,7 miles) from the beach town Sámara.

The untouched sandy beach Buena Vista is an insidertip and therefore only visited by few tourists. Walk a little further along the beach and see the important work of the ocean turtle conservation project and watch baby turtles being released to the ocean.

Take the chance to escape stress and everyday life and visit the closely located gorgeous beaches to recover.

In Sámara, Costa Rica, just north of the Buena Vista beach you can find the white sand paradise of Barrigona beach with an awesome waterfall.

Only 5 km southeast from Sámara you will find Playa Carrillo, a beach with an abundance of palm trees and a small marina.
