Things to do in Playa Juanquillal, Costa Rica.

Though relaxation seems to be the favorite hobby of most people in Playa Junquillal, there are certainly ways to keep busy, too. Horseback riding on the beach, surfing, and sport-fishing are all popular activities here. Residents in the Playa Junquillal area have access to a host of world-class amenities thanks to their proximity to the nearby Hacienda Pinilla and JW Marriott Guanacaste Resort & Spa. These partner properties are located in Playa Avellanas, which is just 7 kilometers away. Considered to be one of Central America's most exclusive gated communities, the numerous clubs and activities offered at the property are incredible. Golfers enjoy their tee-time on the property's championship 18-hole golf course. Tennis courts and an equestrian center encourage members to pursue those passions, while membership in the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club grants access to Central America's largest pool. For some pampering, don't miss out on the chance to visit the property's onsite spa, which was ranked one of the top five spas in all of Latin America by Spa Magazine. The property's numerous restaurants ensure area residents are never far away from a spectacular meal.

For a more casual atmosphere, pay a visit to the nearby village of Paraiso–that's "Paradise" in English. Here, visitors and residents can enjoy plenty of local flair and see what traditional Costa Rican life is like. Enjoy a low-key meal with locals at one of the small "sodas" (a very casual, traditional Costa Rican restaurant) or get some groceries at the family-owned corner stores. Venture around by foot, on bicycle, or in your vehicle and you'll find slightly more upscale dining options tucked away throughout the area.

If you're looking to pick up the pace, a simple 20-minute drive to Tamarindo will put you right in the middle of all the action. This busy beach community has dozens of activities and every kind of tour imaginable, from SCUBA diving, to sailing, to surfing, and more. Tamarindo is home to one of Costa Rica's leading culinary scenes, with dozens of unique and internationally inspired restaurants giving it the reputation as the place to go for dining out. Major stores, luxury spas, happening night clubs and lounges–Tamarindo offers everything you'd expect from an international vacation destination.
