Be cautious, and enjoy the ocean, preferably close to the lifeguard station. Other ways to have fun are diving – snorkeling and canopy tours, have a refreshing dip in Poza Azul – a waterfall near Dominicalito, or simply walk along the beach. Local tour operators can provide you with a broad range of activities in the area.
There are accommodations for all budgets and tastes; however, you should call in advance to ensure your stay.

Every Friday Dominical celebrates an Eco-Market at the patio of the Patron´s Restaurant. The sunsets are beautiful, either by the riverside or the beach.
