Puntarenas is a province of Costa Rica, it is located in the south eastern part of the country and borders along Panama to the south, the Carribbean Sea to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west.

Puntarenas experiences little rain and consistent heat from November to April and because of this humid climate, tourists tend to visit this province during the North American winter to enjoy the breathtaking Puntarenas beaches and surf.

where to stay

There are many options available in this province. You may want to stay in hotels or vacation homes. Vacation homes are slightly cheaper than hotels and could give you more of a feel of the culture of the country. Staff may not be too familar with the english language though, so knowing Spanish would be ideal!

Costa Rica is a great place to learn Spanish as the "ticas" have a dialect that is easy to understand for someone just learning! If you do not know Spanish, try to stay at a vacation home and the friendly staff are usually more than willing to help!
