Directions to Playa Ventanas
Playa Ventanas gets its name from the caves that stretch from the beach to the open ocean. On low tides, you can walk all the way through. The acoustics are wild with the sound of swishing water and the laughter that is sure to come from within. The beach itself is gorgeous yet untamed. There are palm trees, coconuts, and driftwood scattered about the sand. Tons of hermit crabs run around searching for a meal and their next shell. The palms trees tower above the landscape offering shade and the occasional falling pipa. The waves at Playa Ventanas are usually small because of it's tiny wave window and half moon shape that blocks the majority of ocean swell. This makes Ventanas perfect for beginner surfers, snorkelers, and swimmers. Of course, you always have to be careful of riptides.
Getting to Playa Ventanas
The short dirt road that takes you from the Costanera to the beach is located just a few hundred yards north and across the street from the gas station in Ojochal. The road is ever changing depending on local rains. Sometimes you can drive to the beach path while other times you can barely get off the Costanera.
Parking at Playa Ventanas
There is a house right off the beach that charges $2 an hour to watch your car. If no one is home and the gate is closed you will have to park your car on a dirt road which is not visible from the beach. Do not leave valuables in your car at any beach in Costa Rica. This goes double for Playa Ventanas. There are a few thieves in the area that can pick your lock quicker than you can say Pura Vida. Pack for the beach accordingly and carry your valuables with you.
