Description

One of the few spots not right on the road between Cabuya and Montezuma. Beautiful spot under coco palms (beware of falling nuts). There are two access roads in, during our stay the eastern one was in better condition. There are several spots to choose from.

Amazing wild camping spot! There’s a few massive leafy trees that don’t have anything dropping from them and provide perfect shade on the left side. Arrived on a Sunday and a few families were having a picnic, nothing noisy. Can’t really swim, but at low tide there are some pools to sit in. Felt very safe. No “no camping” signage anywhere anymore. We paid 1000pp (!) to use the washroom at the campsite, lady was unimpressed that we were wild camping, but whatever. Bonus: barely any bugs, a miracle!

We stayed here for 2 nights. Super quiet and safe. We stayed under the trees without coconuts (had some hard wind and rain at night, and some leaves and coconuts fell down next to us). Sweet river water is great for washing.

This place was great. I tented here one night while bike touring around the Peninsula and after the trip it remains one of my favorite wild camp spots. Lots of room off the main road. Water can be retrieved from a stream nearby. There is a handmade "no camping" sign at the north end of this spot but appears that no camping is preferred further north - probably made by the owner of a campground further north. I highly recommend this spot.

Nice camping spot, locals come during the day. River to the south is a nice non potable water source if you walk upstream. Stayed 2 nights and on the last day a lady came by to tell us we can't camp but I think she was just the owner of the campsite next door, not sure whether she is correct.

Such an amazing spot 😍 We stood under the trees, right under a patch without any falling coconuts. The view is stunning and not a lot of people visit the place. It’s quiet and relaxing and there’s both the ocean and a little river pool to swim in.

We felt safe and happy here, stayed for 2 nights. During the day some people come to enjoy the beach. At night you get company of a whole lot of crabs, which is fun to see! Would surely recommend.

Gorgeous during the day. Icky during the night, as the ground gets littered with hermit crabs. Think thick carpet of that stuff.

There's an official camp ground a few minutes north that welcomed us. Owner said that while this ground isn't illegal, we might be pestered with cops. No brainer, as his place was cleaner, dirt cheap and included showers.

Thanks a million for the spot!

We slept there one night, arriving after 22h, no problem to find the location.
Nice campsite between the coconut trees, there is a beach next to the campsite that look accessible for swimming.
Tons of crabs at night!

The right name of the place is Las Rocas. It's written "Prohibido acampar" but no problem to stay here a few days with motorhome. We stayed 3 nights and police came once a day but don't say nothing. In the sea there are so many fishes!! Very good to fish or snorkel if you're free diver!!

Amazing place! Nice beach, shadow, wildlife everywhere!! Howler monkeys playing on trees above our heads, iguanas, squirrels, pelicanos and a lot of birds... A beautiful spot!

Amazing beach. Some fishermen walked by but otherwise it was quiet. Beautiful beach near by and tons of places for tents. We pitched ours to the left of the beach sort of inside a tree away from the coconuts falling. Beautiful campsite.

Beautiful and free. Looks like someone harvested the coconuts and we found a level spot under an area with a break in the trees. Trash bins! No one bothered us.

Definitely one of our most beautiful wild camping spots.

Wild camp off the road on the east side of the Nicoya peninsula. Well off the road, access from the north. Only amenity is a garbage can. Beautiful tropical beach, palm trees, and a nice breeze. Free.

Parking lot on a small peninsula under coconut trees. On the gravel road to Cabuya turn left on a small road which leads to the houses. Pass them until you see a small palm tree forest. Very quiet night.
