Playa Herradura was a quiet beach undiscovered by most, only 10-15 years ago, mostly frequented by Ticos and campers. The quiet black sand beach with its aqua green waters and palm tree-lined shoreline, Playa Herradura is a quiet, restful spot to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of Jaco, which is only 6 km away.
To find Playa Herredura turn off the Costanera, north of Jaco, and drive about 3 km down the road west to the beach. Along the way you will pass the luxurious Los Suenos, where you will find an impressive marina, Marriott Hotel, golf course and condominium complexes. Los Suenos has fast become one of the largest tourism developments in Costa Rica.
From Playa Herradura you can also head north to the beautiful Punta Leona, or south to tourist town of Jaco Beach or the acclaimed surf spot of Playa Hermosa.
