The beauty of Papagayo is its large cover of dry tropical forests as well as its dramatic, intricate and shifting coastline. As a result, there are some of the most beautiful beaches in the area, including Virador, Navazcolito, Playa Huevos as well as the two beautiful Huevos Islands.
Culebra Bay, the bay that extends south of Papagayo, is also a fascinating ecosystem. Due to the geography, there is an almost total absence of waves in the area. And it can be said that it is practically a Tropical Fjord.
For this reason, it is also an ideal place to practice marine activities such as stand up paddle, windsurfing, snorkeling and diving.
The Papagayo Marina is one of the largest marinas in Guanacaste, and has numerous slips, where several luxury yachts, boats, sailboats and catamarans are parked.
