Playa Barrigona is a rather wide beach of clear sands and very gentle waves. About seven kilometers from Sámara in the direction to Playa Nosara you will first reach Playa Buenavista and a quite hidden entrance (4 x 4 recommended) you can drive all way to and "Estero". If the tide is low you can wade to this beautiful wide white sandy beach. Don't get tempted to swim there, unless you know how to behave with strong riptides. People have drowned at this tempting beach. We recommed to stay in the beautiful hotel called The Flying Crocodile next to these beaches. The picture of Playa Barrigona on the top right was taken from one of their Ultra-lights.
