playa zancudo - sol y mar

Has anyone stayed here?

Can you recommend any others in the area?

I have been sending email enquiries, but haven't heard back.

I haven't stayed here, but the word "Zancudo" in Spanish refers to what we call "no-see-ums", the bugs which, of course, you never see but which leave terrible, itchy welts behind. I'm very susceptible to these insects, and would never stay at such a beach!

I visited Zancudo last year and we visited Sol Y Mar several times for a beer and dinner. It is one of the better locations with great views of the beach. I would try calling-we had the same problem last year when planning our trip to CR--no email repsonces. You will lve it and the Mosquitos aren't that bad.

A little further south but there are several in the Pavones area that are nice, such as Casa Siempre Domingo.

My wife and I are on our 4th trip to CR in December - We've never been to the south pacific area so were driving to Puerto Jimenes for 3 nights and are debating on heading back north to DOminical and beyond or checking out Zancudo/Paviones for a few nights. We're not surfers but like beach towns with some good restaurants and cafes/bars to hang out in the evenings.

Would it be worth making the drive from PJ to the area for one or two nights? How long is the dirve form PJ to Zancudo?
