Gorgeous waves on the Pacific coast

March 1, 2018

Playa Blanca is a beautiful beach located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, in the province of Puntarenas. The beach has earned the Bandera Azul Ecológica (Blue Flag) for several years as an acknowledgment of local efforts, particularly of the Punta Leona complex, to keep the beach clean and allow tourists to enjoy its pristine surf.

Would you like to submit a photo to our #TTPicOfTheDay series – the view from your home or favorite Costa Rican spot, or any other image you care to share? Please send horizontal photos at least 1100 pixels wide to kstanley@ticotimes.net. We’d love to see the sights with you.
