The moment you step from your terrace you are in the sand, surrounded by Coconut Palms and Almendro Trees, just steps from the waters edge. The beach in front of the house has a flat sand bottom, without a doubt the best section of beach in Playa Grande, great for swimming, great for kids and lots of shade.
Whether inside or out on the beach you will see perfect waves breaking a short distance to the left and right of the house where you will usually see some of the best surfers in Costa Rica enjoying our pristine waves.
We rent boogie boards and beginner surf boards which are covered with thick protective foam and have soft flexible rubberized fins for maximum safety, very beginner friendly. We offer free surf lessons. Great fun for everyone.
Just a 15 minute stroll down the beach is Playa Carbon, one of Costa Rica’s rare black sand beaches. On the way you will see a giant 50 foot rock that sits in the water close to shore just a short distance to the right of the house where you can play in the rock tide pools which are filled with many shells and small marine life. Good shoreline fishing at the rock.
Playa Grande is one of the few beaches in the world where Giant Leather Back Turtles weighing up to 1,800 pounds and up to 9 feet long come at night to nest and lay their eggs. Many nights these amazing prehistoric animals nest directly in front of our homes. (A Must See).
We highly recommended you to experience Local Bull Riding at the local Fiestas (Typical Parties). You will see bull riding like you have never seen before. It's like going back to the Old West, but Costa Rican Style. There are a wide variety of activities and day trips available in our region. We can help you arrange.
Private guided day trips to one of our favorite rivers to see Crocodiles, Macaw, Parrots, and a variety of Exotic Birds, Giant Iguanas, White Face, and Howler Monkeys and many other animals. The trip ends with a typical Costa Rican Lunch (Excellent Food). On your trip back, you will stop in the small town of Guaitil,
famous for handmade pottery, fired on site in a Tico Style clay wood burning ovens.
Playa Grande is conveniently located between the towns of Tamarindo and Flamingo. Tamarindo is just 20 minutes to the South by car or a 35 minute beach walk to the river mouth that separates us from Tamarindo. For about one dollar, a boat taxi will take you across the river.

Greg and Gabriella were a delight to deal with, and have created an environment that is clean, amply furnished and equipped, and sited in a spectacular location. Literally fewer than 10 steps to a spotless expanse of white sandy beach that lends itself to long walks, boogie boarding, surfing, shelling, swimming and unbeatable sunsets. And the additional surprises of masseuses on the beach, and visits from a baked goods van twice weekly. There was nothing to want for. No need for a weather forecast here--every day was sunny, in the 90s with a wonderful ocean breeze, and an indescribable sunset every night. The housekeeping staff were diligent, pleasant and friendly and helpful, though language is a considerable issue if you do not speak Spanish. Regrettably none in my party spoke more than a very few words. If you don't speak the language, be sure to bring a book of everyday phrases with you. There is a bit of travel to the nearest supermarket , which was well-stocked though very pricey. There are a few restaurants within walking distance or a very short drive with real in-country atmosphere, very friendly staff but only very average food. Tours are very easily arranged at Casa Sylmar, and there are a lot of offerings. We traveled there from the Northeast. Getting there and back were the worst parts of the trip--few airline offerings, challenging connections, and Liberia airport is on my list of places to avoid in the future. There were long, long lines in a non-air conditioned ticketing area, exorbitant costs for very poor food in a hopelessly overcrowded gate environment that is very under-air conditioned. Nothing seems to depart on time and I believe that it is partly due to an inefficiency in the management of security. If you can "suck it up", the destination is worth it.
