Mal Pais Costa Rica

Mal Pais is a beautiful beach community and group of beaches locates in the southernmost region of the Nicoya Peninsula. To reach Mal Pais, the best way is flying into Tambor Airstrip and from there by car or taxi in a 1 hour drive. Another option is driving from Puntarenas, crossing the Golf of Nicoya with the Ferry and then by car ( a 4x4 ) to Mal Pais. Mal Pais is a region well known for its beautiful beaches and abundant nature. The geography is abrupt, with an abundant presence of steep cliffs and hills, tropical dry forests and creeks. From Mal Pais you can also easily visit the neighboring beaches of Santa Teresa to the North, or the Cabo Blanco National Park and the Montezuma Waterfalls to the South. There are many hotels and cabins in the region, abundant restaurants and even two smaller minimarkets. Trips include snorkeling, Tortuga Island, Cabo Blanco, Curu, horseback riding, atv trips and canopy tours. We do recommend Mal Pais for people interested in ending their vacation on a beach.
