For some days at the beach also consider the Playita reort on the beach, living among some Macaws, Emus, Golden Pheasant and other exotic birds, watching them close up and enjoying a swim in the Pacific Ocean. The Playita resort is about 30 Km or 30 minutes after Pedasi and around 5 minutes before getting to playa Venado. It features a small private beach that is protected in a little bay from the huge ocean waves you find in that area. The Hotel rooms are nice and clean and cost around 77 (might change over time and in high season) for a double plus food is available also. On weekend tour buses arrive here so if you want it more quiet better visit during the week.
