Junuillal is another gem located in Guanacaste the “gold coast” the three kilometer long beach is perfect for walking or horseback riding.  This is one of the more secluded beaches in Costa Rica only offering a few hotels and dining options.  The beach is made of a unique black and grey sand with beautiful clear pacific waters.  The sure tranquility is one of the main attractions of this marvelous beach, not many people go here even in the high season so this is the perfect spot to grab a beach towel with your significant other and just relax.

Swimming on the main beach of Junquilla is not sensible due to strong currents however there are tide pools and beaches close by to cool down and there are even great places to snorkel.  One of the best beaches just to the north is Playa Blanca or white beach where you can safely swim and snorkel in the turquoise waters or possibly do some boogie boarding.

If you get bored from just taking it easy you may wish to rent a bicycle or possible go for a horseback ride on the beach, along the way you will encounter monkeys, turtles, and a large medley of birds and butterflies.  If you’re looking for a little adventure then head south to the river estuary where you will find a lagoon to kayak but keep your eye out for crocodiles.  You may also wish to try your luck with some fishing from shore in the estuary or charter a boat in the ocean.  When the sun sets the vivid colors will take your breath away, among the locals this is the favorite part of the day.    No matter what you do you will be living the pura vida lifestyle.
