Playa Esterillos is located on the Pacific side of Costa Rica between Jaco and Manuel Antonio. Esterillos stretches the coastline and is broken up into four different beaches; Esterillos Oeste, Esterillos Centro, Esterillos Este and Playa Bejuco. Conveniently, each beach has access from the main highway. Translated in English to mean Estuary, Esterillos contains river mouths separating each of the four beaches. Because of this, the surf breaks are excellent in this area. Wildlife and fishing are also abundant here. We love Playa Esterillos because not only is the surf great, the beach is perhaps one of the most unique in all of Costa Rica.
