Between the towns of Dominical and Ojochal (35 Km) you will find 8 gorgeous beaches, all very private and with very few people. A few Ticos visit on the weekends and the rest of the time you will find the beaches very secluded. Between Ventanas and Dominical are 6 other beaches that are accessible by a short walk, a short drive, or even by horseback. These are all just off the Costanera (Costa Rica`s best highway).
Dominical is located at the beginning of the Costanera. From Dominical with Dominical Beach you can drive very comfortably south along this coastal highway all the way to Palmar Norte. The total time from Dominical to Palmar Norte is 1 ¼ hours. Driving south you will pass Playa Dominical, Playa Hermosa, Playa Uvita, Bahia, Ballena, Piñuela, Tortuga and finally Ventanas. From Ventanas south is the Terraba River, Ciudad Cortes, Palmar Norte and finally Palmar Sur where the current AIRPORT is located.
