Dominical Attractions

Pockets of caramel-colored beaches and rocky tide pools hide between the Pacific swells and tropical rainforest that run up and down the Dominical coastline. While most surfers head out to Dominical Beach for the surf, they'll find a wealth of other secluded spots nearby. Hermosa and Dominicalito both offer challenging swells for experienced surfers, while the surf at Pinuelas in Ballena National Marine Park is more suited to swimming and relaxing on the beach.

Dominical's more than a surf destination though, visitors can trek through the rainforest searching for monkeys and three-toed sloths at Hacienda Baru, go whale watching/kayaking in Ballena National Marine Park, cliff diving on the the Nauyaca Waterfall tour, or travel to Cano Island for snorkeling and diving tours among tropical fish, white-tipped reef sharks and manta rays.
