The Most Instagrammable Hotels in Dominical, Costa Rica

The pearl of Costa Rica's South Pacific, Dominical is a seaside resort in a class of its own. A small paradise for surfers, nestled between jungle-covered mountains and the Pacific Ocean. However, the village of Dominical must be separated from the rest of the region.

Indeed, the village of Dominical is very focused on surfing, relaxation and yoga. The beach is absolutely beautiful with its dense vegetation and its water mirror effect for the sunsets. However, the strong waves and currents can be a hindrance for unsure swimmers. The village is ideal for backpackers but offers few options for those seeking comfort and tranquillity.
