Is It Safe To Swim In the Ocean in Costa Rica?

There are hundreds of beaches in Costa Rica. Each beach has different currents and at any given time may harbor conditions that are safe or dangerous for swimming. Some beaches that are generally safe for swimming, due to the shape of the bay and the protection of reefs, include Samara, Carillo, Punta Uva, Ocotal and Playa Hermosa in Guanacaste (not to be confused with Playa Hermosa in the Central Pacific). Remember that there will be no lifeguards on duty, so if you choose to swim in the ocean, you do so at your own risk.
