Playa Los Cedros

A ten-minute drive south of Montezuma lies Playa Los Cedros, a rocky stretch of the Pacific boasting some of the most dazzling sunsets in the Nicoya Peninsula. Schools of fish make Los Cedros a favorite hunting spot for seabirds, especially enormous pelicans and frigate birds. When low tide coincides with the sunset, pink and blue reflective pools emerge among the rocks. With a decent south swell, Playa Los Cedros offers surfers an impressive right point break. While not as consistent as nearby Santa Teresa, surfers can catch this break on either side of high tide, but should look out for the area's many jagged rocks.
