Specific locations and residents help in shaping the town's atmosphere and vibe. Situated beachfront, hugging the south bank of the Baru River, Dominical is the gateway to Osa. Costa Rica's southern pacific. Dominical is the first town in the canton of Osa as you head south. Although only separated by the river from the northern district of Aguirre, the feeling of the town is somahow very different. Crossing the bridge over the Baru opens a portal to an alternate universe of fun and excitement.
For residents of inland towns like Perez Zeledon, Tinamastes, and Platantio, Dominical is also the closest accessible beach town. Dominical has always been the destination for local families and residents of San Isidro to enjoy weekend beach activities and holiday gatherings. Surfers and global travelers have found refuge in this little paradise. Until 2009, pavement did nat cannect Dominical to Quepos and the rest af central Costa Rica. Bumpy dirt roads and river crossings kept the fair weather travelers from reaching Dominical. Those that braved the trip found a lively little beach town with an irresistible charm. The people that moved to Dominical then were like minded with an adventurous spirit seeking an unspoiled tropical beach.

Now Dominical is connected for all to enjoy, It's no longer a secret, yet the town remains cohesive with its local comradery and small-town atmosphere. Unlike many coastal towns, you can walk to every business within minutes, You can find everything you need ardon't need within a few blocks. The behernian vibes of artists and musicians continue to bring character. Long-time resident ex-pats and local ticos laugh and tell stories reminiscing the town's history and sharing good times. Weekly farmer's markets showcase the best in local foods, handmade clothes, crafts. tinctures, and tapestry. Appreciation for the artisan has given inspiration to a broad range of restaurants, coffee shops, and a local craft brewery..

Surfing continues to bring attention to Dominical. The heavy waves breed dedicated surfers and National Team level athletes. "Sunset Sessions" a local Saturday afternoon surf event, is open for all to participate in and enjoy. DJs set the mood for locals and tourists to watch the surfers compete as the sun melts into the sea.

Yoga and massage centers help counterbalance the many activities bringing tranquility to liveliness.

Whether you're here for the surf, the sun,  adventure or relaxation. Dominical offers each visitor the option to choose their own path. For a small tow, Dominical provides a lot of variety; however, the proud residents and locals make Playa Dominical so special.
