Hidden beach

Near Uvita in Costa Rica there is a beach that has very limited access. As a result this 1/3 mile long beach has almost no-one on it. We walked to this beach (a 15 minute hike through the rain forest) four times, and one time there were four other people on the beach. The rest of the time we had this playa entirely to ourselves. You have to check the tides when going to the beach because it completely disappears at high tide when the Pacific comes right up to the edge of the rain forest. The beach is accessible from La Cusinga Lodge (see my hummingbird picture from here posted earlier). I have called this place magical - this beach is one of the reasons why.
