Directions to Dominical - Costa Ballena
When you arrive in Dominical you are greeted with bumpy dirt roads, towering palm trees, charming shops, great restaurants and a wide variety of accommodations. Dominical is at the north end of Costa Ballena and rests between the Baru River, lush mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Baru is a major river that empties into the Pacific just north of Dominical. This forms sandbars at the river mouth that help shape the waves that have made Dominical a world class surf destination. The beach is lined with almond and palm trees which create nice shady areas for beach combers to sit and enjoy the day while watching the surfers. Most people congregate on the beach in front of Tortilla Flats (rated by CNN as one of the worlds best beach bars) but, you can walk south down the beach and find a nice shady spot to enjoy by yourself.
