Playa Fantasia is an isolated beach located just forty minutes from Jaco, accessible only by boat. Our tours and charters are truly visiting a beach that very few people have visited – a hidden gem. The place is also a perfect destination for weddings, receptions and rehearsal dinners. It is semi-private and the beauty of the natural beach is unmatched by any other destination.
Our catamaran tour board directly from the beach of Los Suenos Marriot, a short ten-minute drive from Jaco Costa Rica and twenty minutes from Playa Hermosa. All our tours, open and private, have a personal chef that prepares the lunch and snacks at the beach. There is no electricity here, all our food is prepared using an authentic charcoal fire. Our pina coladas, margaritas and mojitos are prepared fresh using fresh ingredients – no mixes! Playa Fantasia has several features such as a hammock area, rustic seating area, volleyball nets, washroom and rustic beach loungers.
There are 3 families of monkeys that travel through the area, scarlet macaws that sometimes eat off the almond trees and white nose coatis. We also have domestic animals that we have rescued and have rehabilitated them with the help of our clients.
