GOPlaya Beach of the Week: Penca Beach

December 20, 2018

Surrounded by mountains and featuring white sand contrasting turquoise water, Penca Beach has to be seen to be believed.

The small beach in Carrillo, Guanacaste is at the end of a bumpy dirt road and a hiking trail, but the trek is worth it. You’ll be rewarded with calm waves, beautiful scenery and a great place to snorkel.
