  1. Dominical

    Dominical is a beach-front town in the province of Puntarenas in Costa Rica approximately 45 km south of Quepos. It is famous for large, year-round waves and is well known by most surfers in Costa Rica. The town began as a small fishing village but has since grown into a tourist destination, most notably for surfers. Access from the capital, San José can be via San Isidro de El General to the east or down the coast from Quepos. Although similar in distance, the trip down the coast is much faster due to the winding nature of the inland route. The area between Quepos and Dominical is dotted with African oil palm plantations producing palm oil. Farther south are the villages of Uvita, Ojochal, Coronado on the Costanera Highway.
