Playa Barrigona, Costa Rica

Living in Costa Rica comes with its perks like being close to epic surf and beautiful prestine beaches without the crowds you would typically see along California’s coastline. Playa Barrigona has become our second home. With white sandy beaches, palm trees to hide from the sun and good waves, it’s a paradise. In the dry season the beach makes for a perfect place to set up beach volley ball. And the palm trees are great for hanging hammocks.
Mel Gibson owns about 500 acres right up to the beach, thankfully he does not own the sand. To reach the beach in the rainy season you would definitely need four wheel drive as the dirt road can get horrendous in the rain. I have yet to encounter Mel but there are lots of Howler Monkeys playing in the palms. In the rainy season there is also a waterfall that can be enjoyed on the south side of the beach. It is especially nice to rinse off in the fresh water after playing in the salt water.
