Playa Dominical – a great surf spot

Playa Dominical, Costa Ballena, South Pacific, Costa Rica

Playa Dominical is traditionally known as the most consistent surf spot in Costa Rica. Beware swimmers: the currents and the undertows are very strong. Be very careful and stay near the lifeguard tower!

There is always a nice crowd on the beach, and the sunsets are unique. At the north end of the beach, the great Barú River flows into the ocean.

The river is unsuitable for swimming as there are crocodiles, which have already eaten one or two dogs.
