1. Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen near Santa Teresa on the Nicoya Peninsula is not quite as busy as its neighboring beach community. The beach is also filled with palm trees and little places where you can get out of sight, and Playa del Carmen is on the tip end of the Nicoya Peninsula in Puntarenas Province where the pace of life doesn’t change much. Making the proverbial “sex on the beach,” cocktail only adds to the pleasure of being at a tropical beach in Costa Rica.
