A Surfer Town

A surfer town not too far off the beaten path, just 44 km south of Quepos and a national airport, and within an hour’s drive from San Isidro El General city’s center, Dominical is the gateway that opens up to Costa Ballena. And with consistent waves served up at the ‘playa’, Dominical has become home to annual surf competitions and attracts many surfers who are coming to cut up the waves in Costa Rica.

Although Dominical remains a small town, it offers access to essential services, such as a bank and ICE, where electricity, internet and phone services can be set up. And a definite perk, delivery service from the local grocery store and a few local restaurants is available!

Over this last high season Dominical has benefitted from various new businesses opening and this last has helped revive the town. Pueblo del Rio has been impacted positively the most, and every Friday there is a Farmers Market that is held there.

In the surrounding municipalities, such as Dominicalito, Escaleras, and Puerto Cito, families, couples and retirees alike, also enjoy the fresh mountain air combined with the proximity to the beach. The area boasts stunning ocean views from many homes.
