Additional Location Information

Playa Grande is a quaint little beachside community with very little development, lots of trees, monkeys, iguanas and wildlife. Not really classified as a 'town', lacking the requisite soccer field and church, a vacation in Playa Grande really urges you to take a step back, relax, and get into the "Pura Vida" mentality.

You may wish to rent a vehicle for part of your stay, we can have one delivered to the apartment for you. Parking is available right beside your apartment, easily accessible. A short easy 5-7 minute stroll down the street leads you to the beautiful long white sandy beach. Sunsets are stunning here, as are the evenings simply enjoyed on your back terrace, listening to the sounds of nature.

Below are some of the activities available to you during your stay at Frijoles Locos Apartments.

Playa Grande is famous for its Leatherback Turtle nesting season (October to March). You can arrange a night-time turtle watching tour at the local MINAE office. Guided tours cost $26 per person, and if you don’t see a turtle, you can come back for free the next night.

Rent a bicycle and explore the area. Low-tide biking on beach cruisers is a great way to get to Tamarindo to explore. Bicycle rentals are available from Frijoles Locos Surf Shop.

Early morning walks to look for monkeys- they are loud! Just follow the strange, deep bellowing sound and take your camera.

El Frijol Feliz Day Spa located at Frijoles Locos offers massages, facials, pedicures, manicures, body scrubs and more.

Day-trips to Arenal Volcano, Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Palo Verde National Park and more are easily arranged through your hotel or at the local tourist information.

Yoga Classes are conducted 6 mornings per week in the high season at the RipJack Inn.

Surf lessons for all levels are available from Frijoles Locos Surf Shop.

Take a spanish class- ask at Frijoles Locos for more info.

Play ping-pong at PGI’s table tennis table

Kids love the tide-pools at low tide… bring with you a little kid’s fishing net that doubles as a butterfly net when you aren’t at the beach.

Walk to Playa Carbon- the black sand beach to snorkel or just feel a million miles away from it all. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy!

For night-clubs and night-life, Playa Grande isn’t the pick. Tamarindo is where you go to party, any night of the week. Wednesday nights in Potrero at Las Brisas are Ladies’ Night, a hot pick for some all night music and dancing.
