Reasons to visit Playa Dominical.

Playa Dominical is a long beach

Though it’s a popular beach and attracts several visitors during various times of the year, its length allows visitors to spread out down the coast.
This blesses Playa Dominical with a feeling that the beach is less busy than it actually is.
More than anything else, .

Playa Dominical is a small surf and yoga town

If you want to surf or practice yoga on a budget, or you have an interest in visiting a small-scale surf/yoga community, Playa Dominical is a destination worth considering.
Reasons to not visit Playa Dominical.
Playa Dominical is not particularly attractive.
Though it’s not a dirty beach, rocks and debris prevent Playa Dominical from being a beach you can comfortably stroll along barefoot.
Since plenty of smooth, light-sand beaches exist up and down the coast, Playa Dominical’s messy, brown-sand beach often fails to impress visitors.
Since the destination tends to attract travelers on a budget, Playa Dominical offers more economy and standard accommodation options than superior and resort-quality stays.
If you’re on your honeymoon or you want a high-class travel experience, it’s important to know that luxury is virtually non-existent at Playa Dominical.
Playa Dominical doesn’t offer visitors a wide variety of tour options, especially when compared to the countless activity offerings that run to/from nearby Playa Manuel Antonio.
For this reason, Playa Dominical isn’t the best beach destination to visit if you plan to participate in several nature/adventure tours during your trip.
Playa Dominical has a laid-back, Bohemian vibe, which means operations in town move at a snail’s pace.
While some travelers love this about the area (pura vida, mae!), others feel more comfortable visiting destinations where tourism is practiced in a more organized manner.
Parking at Playa Dominical.
There is no official parking at Playa Dominical. Locals park randomly along the back of the beach (which runs parallel to the beach access road) among the trees.
Beach hopping from Playa Dominical.
Recommended day trips from Playa Dominical include visits to Playa Uvita, Playa Ventanas, and/or beaches in the Manuel Antonio vicinity such as Playa Manuel Antonio, Playa Espadilla Sur, and Playa Espadilla Norte.
