Despite being a Costa Rican and travel the country extensively there are several locations I often fail to visit mainly because as many I tend to choose the most popular destinations over those unknown (I´ve had some negative experiences in the past when relying on my instincts), recently I came across a great opportunity to visit one particular beach that I overlooked for a long time. This wonderful beach is Dominical located in South Puntarenas.

Costa Rica is obviously one of the best countries to visit when you are trying to find a country to visit but most people do not know what they will do while they are in Costa Rica.
