About 34 kilometers north of Hotel Villas Gaia is the quaint and growing beach town of Dominical

The laid back village is surrounded by plantations, estuaries, mangroves and marshes.

With perhaps the most consistent waves in Costa Rica, Playa Dominical is a haven for surfers. Swimming, however, can be dangerous due to the strong riptides that are found throughout the 2.5 mile (4 km) strip of beach.
