There are few places in Costa Rica, or the world(!), that have better sunsets than Costa Rica’s southern pacific area. Whether you are watching a sunset in Dominical, Uvita or any of the beaches near there, the Playa Ventanas Sunsets are tough to beat. Check out the gallery of sunsets below and be sure to check out the gallery of images from the beach here.

Given Costa Rica’s proximity to the equator, sunrise and sunset do not vary too much – especially compared to areas further away from the equator (like the USA and Canada). The sun rises around 5:15 am and sets around 5:15 pm – there is slight variation of this. For the most accurate sunset and sunrise times, please visit this website

Playa Ventanas is closed soon after sunset, but the parking that is now available, makes it easy to get back to your vehicle and exit the beach. We recommend watching at least one sunset at Playa Ventanas during your time to Costa Rica’s southern pacific zone.
