Pocket Guide: Dominical

Your Hotel Stay in Dominical

Dominical’s accommodation is a collection of three- and four-star hotels that welcome visitors to the small coastal town. With its two miles of forest-fringed beaches and a swell that draws surfers from far and wide, Dominical is becoming a popular get-away for families and water-lovers alike. Visitors have a wide choice of hotels, hostels and B&Bs to choose from in Dominical itself, and there are more accommodation options dotted along the coast, especially in neighbouring Uvita.

Dominical’s Beaches and Waves

The dramatic wave patterns make Dominical a magnet for experienced surfers, but water sports fans of all levels will find plenty to do here, with windsurfing, kitesurfing, paddle-boarding, kayaking and canoeing all on offer. Caño Island lies just off the coast, and is home to a biological reserve featuring coral reefs and a stunning array of marine flora and fauna. Go snorkelling or diving here and you have the chance of spotting whales, sharks, turtles and myriad fish species. While watersports dominate Dominical, there are also some great places for lunch near the beach and some excellent dining options by night, especially if you love seafood.

Canopy Tours and More Things to Do

Venture inland for Costa Rica’s famed canopy, or zip-line, tours. There are several zip-lining centres around Dominical, offering those with a head for heights a thrilling flight through the rainforest treetops. Keep an eye out for those animal and bird species as you fly through the foliage! Hacienda Baru is a wildlife and activity centre covering some 330 hectares of wetlands and rainforests, with beautiful beaches, walking trails, and exciting zip-lining for the more intrepid. It also has an orchid garden and a butterfly garden.

For more forest adventures, you could hike or take a horseback tour to the nearby Nauyaca Waterfalls, a beautiful set of cascades with a pool for a well-earned cooling dip. The Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is a rescue and rehabilitation centre that gives visitors a chance to meet its resident sloths, coatis, monkeys, anteaters and other species.
