Gorgeous waves on the Pacific coast

March 1, 2018

Playa Blanca is a beautiful beach located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, in the province of Puntarenas. The beach has earned the Bandera Azul Ecológica (Blue Flag) for several years as an acknowledgment of local efforts, particularly of the Punta Leona complex, to keep the beach clean and allow tourists to enjoy its pristine surf.
