Playa Negra’s no longer a secret.
It’s easy going atmosphere comes from the pristine pacific and the people who live here. It’s most famous for the incredible right point break that challenges the highest of skill levels. Most of us who live here came to surf and live a more natural lifestyle away from the pressures of the big cities. We raise families here and have a value system that is harmonious, peaceful and respectful. Almost everyone starts their day with a yoga session at the Playa Negra Yoga & Barre, followed by a fantastic Tico breakfast of ‘gallo pinto’ at Café Playa Negra or how about Café La Ventana for some organic New York bistro fusion? (when Jennifer says ‘homemade’ or ‘organic’ you can feed it to your grandkids!) Maybe a horseback ride along the beaches and forests sounds like your thing? or an exhilarating zip line and canopy tour? But most come and grab their boards to paddle out into the perfect waves of Playa Negra.
With surf over 300 days a year at Playa Negra, “surf’s up” takes on a whole new meaning. Come and lounge in a hammock under the trees, explore tide pools brimming with life; go fishing or just have fun! Fun! Remember that? It’s the way of life here. Reconnect with your inner child. At the end of the day, relax in the magic of the tropical sunset light show. Afterwards, enjoy a vibrant night life with restaurants, bars and live music, just don’t forget to take in a siesta during the daytime!
For those special occasions we encourage you to visit Villa Deevena’s for a 5-star evening and meet Patrick and his staff, who will treat you like family. Or perhaps the fabulous pizza at La Vida Buena is more your taste? With so many restaurants, cafés and eateries in Playa Negra you’ll never run out of choices! And tell them we sent you!
