Lying on the Pacific Northwest Coast, just south of Tamarindo, one of the most popular destinations on the North Pacific Coast of Costa Rica, is the exotic and sandy beach of Playa Langosta. Known for its amazing surfing and gorgeous beachfront bed and breakfasts that line the shore, Playa Langosta is ideal for those who want to have some fun while enjoying the stunning beauty of the area. A mostly rocky shoreline with small pockets of sandy beach, Playa Langosta is definitely worth visiting especially if you happen to be in the Tamarindo area.
A great beach for a quiet stroll, Playa Langosta at its southern end sits near the mouth of an estuary and has an excellent surf break here, attracting surfers from Tamarindo who prefer to surf amid some peace and quiet. However, be warned that Playa Langosta can get pretty crowded in the high season when tourists and locals come here to enjoy the area’s natural beauty.
Just 2.5 km from Tamarindo village, Playa Langosta is an excellent place to spend a peaceful day after being the very popular Tamarindo. Some 10 minutes away from the local airport in Tamarindo and around 50 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia. Also close to the Las Baulas National Park, come here between October and March to catch a glimpse of the leatherback turtles that nest in the area.
