About Playitas

The tourist magnet Manuel Antonio National Park has fun but semi-consistent beachbreak options along the 3km long Playa Espadilla but the northwest corner at Playitas holds the best waves from mid to high tide and there is also an outer reef righthander with a solid swell and a high tide. Locals are chill, waves for all standards, and it’s a great place to hang out.
