Jun 5, Costa Rica , Travel Destinations comments. With ten miles of pristine jungle backed beach and six distinct neighborhoods it can be difficult to know where to base yourself. Beaches become more natural and animals are more plentiful the further you venture outside of town. However, the road runs through dark jungle, which is not walkable at night, and comforts like pharmacies and ATMs are only in town. My recommendation for those without a car is to stay in Playa Cocles where you are in front of the beach but close enough to town. If you have a car, or just want to get away from it all, I recommend staying in Playa Cocles or Playa Chiquita.

This place is heaven on Earth. This place is amazing, awesome, and We're being funny, yes, but that was the fun of it! Pura vida for sure. We arrived at night and were all grins when Daan showed us our rainforest home for the first time that would be our shelter for the following seven nights.
stayin in PG plan to chill in tamarindo too. Need advice! - Tamarindo Forum
You can get a taxi easily but Playa Grande is pretty remote you are better off with a car. You can get a taxi from Tamarindo easily. You cant really walk from Tamarindo to Playa Grande because even with low tide, the estuary is still pretty deep, and there is the crocodile issue, hehe. You are right the boat taxis from Tamarindo to Grande only run in the day until 6.
If you were following me, you know I spent 4 and a half months in Panama and Costa Rica, out of which maybe 3 months were on the beach close to the jungle in Costa Rica. To be precise, I enjoyed to maximum 6 weeks of volunteering at Blue Osa on the Pacific coast and then another 6 weeks in Puerto Viejo — Manzanillo area on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Now, after spending 3 weeks in Slovakia, which means no beach, and no rainforest jungle not counting some weird human habits as a sort of jungle right now! I consider myself a very adaptable person and usually just need a day or two to completely merge with the environment. However, when thinking of my 3 months in the jungle in Costa Rica there were still a few things I did not enjoy that much and could easily go without them.
