Punta Uva beach

Ultimate guide (August 2018)
Punta Uva - the best beach in Costa Rica. The most beautiful part of the beach is sometimes called Playa Arrecife, and is located just behind the cape to the north-east of the official Punta Uva beach. Ironically, this "secret" part of the coast is not marked as a beach on many maps, so it is easy to miss it. Look for Arrecife Restaurante to avoid confusion. By car you should drive on the highway # 256 from Puerto Viejo town to the bus stop located just before Korrigan Lodge hotel. At the bus stop, turn left onto a secondary road. Shore and seabed: sand.
