From Quepos, take the road 235, and then join the 34 direction Dominical. After you cross Rio Naranjo, you will go through a small village called Llamoron Boca Naranjito and there will be a road on your right. Then you just have to keep going on this dirt road until Playa Rey (you can go with a normal car, but we recommend you a 4×4, especially during the rainy season…).
This area is part of Manuel Antonio National Park and you may see animals on your way, mostly birds like herons, egrets, and many shorebirds. The landscapes are typical, wild and very green. It is really a different way to discover the area, off from the typical path. Playa Rey is well known for being a perfect spot for surfers. The breaks are super clean left and right which perfectly synchronize with large swells. Also, it is a wide and very long beach, if you go further you may find the Playa Savegre which is a beautiful place to see too.
Be careful if you go close to the river, many crocodiles live there… On your way, if you want a place to eat great typical food, at a very good price, we recommend that you go to the Restaurant called Club El Roncador. It is a familiar restaurant, open from 7 am to 10 pm every day.
