San Josecito Beach

The roll of the lazy surf whispers sweet nothings in your ears about you, nature, and finding yourself in the solitude of Playa San Josecito!

With unimpeded views of the iconic Cano Island, the toffee colored sands of Playa San Josesito are hemmed in by imposing untamed rainforest with wild almond, mango and tall palm trees, and flecked with lava rocks, just to the sides.

Walking along the two- and a half hour coastal trail from Drake town to Playa San Josecito Beach is not for the faint of heart. The trail is challenging at times. But, once you are there, get your buns on the sun, play in the waves, snorkel in the reef, get your picnic lunch ready and enjoy the wildlife that dwells up shore, especially the white-faced monkeys, or simply be yourself lounging around enjoying nature.

Boat tours to CaƱo Island often moor in Playa San Josecito for a picnic lunch adding snorkeling as part of their itinerary.

There are no washrooms or medical facilities, you must pack in your munchies, and pack out your own trash.
